    Godfrey III (d.1190) was the count of Leuven (or Louvain) and Brussels, landgrave of Brabant, margrave of Antwerp, and duke of Lower Lorraine (as Godfrey VIII) from 1142 to his death. He was the son of Godfrey II and Lutgarde of Sulzbach. He was an infant at his succession and the petty lords immediately sought to benefit from his minority to increase their own wealth and power. The abbey of Grimbergen was burnt in 1142. Only with the preaching of the Second Crusade was a truce effected.

    On 30 March 1147, Godfrey was present at the coronation of Henry Berengar, the son of Conrad III of Germany, in Aachen. When Conrad left on Crusade, the wars began anew in 1148. Peace was elusive until the election of Conrad's successor, Frederick Barbarossa. By marriage to Margaret, daughter of Henry II of Limburg, Godfrey united the two most powerful and antagonistic houses in the region. In 1159, Godfrey embarked on a decade-long war with his vassals, the Berthout. In 1171, Godfrey was at war with Hainault, where he was defeated. At that point he associated his son Henry with the ducal throne. In 1179, he married his son to a niece of Philip of Alsace, Count of Flanders. With this marriage, he yielded the counties of Brussels and Aerschodt.

    He left his son behind as regent when he went on Crusade between 1182 and 1184. In the interim, Barbarossa gave Henry the title "Duke of Brabant". Godfrey died in 1190, between 10 and 21 August. He left an increased patrimony. He had built the fortress of Nedelaer. The ducal title was transmitted to his son by the Diet of Schwäbisch Hall. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
