Note

BIOGRAPHY Robert was born about 1032, the younger son of Baudouin V, Graaf van Vlaanderen, and Adèle de France, a daughter of King Robert II of France. He was count of Flanders from 1071 to 1092.

About 1063 he married Gertrud von Sachsen, dowager countess of Holland, the widow of Floris I, Graaf van Holland, and daughter of Bernhard II, Herzog von Sachsen, and Eilica von Schweinfurt. They had five children of whom Robert, Adele and Gertrud would have progeny.

Robert was originally intended to secure the northern borders of Flanders by his marriage, but after his brother's death in 1070 he displaced his nephews and became count of Flanders. Robert's nephew Arnulf III (son of Robert's elder brother Baudouin VI, Graaf van Vlaanderen) succeeded his father in 1070 and was supported by his mother Richilde, heiress of Hainault. However Robert challenged Arnulf's succession to the throne of Flanders and began rallying support mainly in northern Flanders, where the bulk of Arnulf's forces were located. Arnulf's ranks contained individuals such as Eustace II, comte de Boulogne, and his sons Eustace III de Boulogne and Godefroy de Bouillon, duke of Lower-Lorraine.

Arnulf was supported by King Philippe I of France, who sent a force, including a contingent of ten Norman knights led by William FitzOsbern, 1st earl of Hereford, seigneur de Bretueil, to aid Arnulf. FitzOsbern was by then married to Arnulf's mother Richilde, heiress of Hainault, widow of his father Baudouin VI-I.

Robert's force attacked Arnulf's numerically superior army at Cassel before it could organise. William FitzOsborn was killed while Richilde and Arnulf were captured, and Arnold died soon after. However, Robert himself was captured by Eustace II, comte de Boulogne. Ultimately, Richilde was exchanged for Robert's freedom. As a result of the battle Robert was confirmed by King Philippe as count of Flanders.

Robert died in Cassel on 13 October 1093.
