Baldwin I, Margrave of Flanders, (Baldwin Iron Arm)  (c. 830 – 879)

Institution of Baldwin I

At the time Baldwin first appears in the records he was already a count, presumably in the area of Flanders, but this is not known. Count Baldwin rose to prominence when he eloped with Judith, daughter of Charles the Bald, king of West Francia. They fled north around 861 as Charles had given no permission for a marriage and tried to capture Baldwin. After Baldwin and Judith had evaded his attempts to capture them, Charles had his bishops excommunicate the couple. Judith and Baldwin responded and traveled to Rome to plead their case with Pope Nicholas I. By 23 November 862, their plea was successful and Charles was forced to accept the situation. The marriage took place on 13 December 862 in Auxerre. King Charles appointed Baldwin Margrave of Flanders, responsible for repelling the Viking invasions.Baldwin was very successful in the position and used it to build his domain. By 870, in addition to Flanders, Baldwin had acquired the lay-abbacy of Saint Peter's Abbey in Ghent and is assumed to have also acquired the county of Waasland, or parts thereof by this time.
Baldwin I and Judith had the following children: Charles who died at a young age .
