Henry V of Luxemburg, herzog von Limburg is our 22nd great grandfather.
Janet Milburn 11/12/22

Henry V of Luxembourg, also call the the Blond or the Great, was the count of Luxembourg, Laroche and Arlon to his death and the count of Namur as Henry III. He was the son and successor of Waleran III of Limburg and Ermesinda of Luxembourg. In 1240 Henry married Margaret of Bar, daughter of Henry II of Bar and Philippa of Dreux who was the great-granddaughter of King Louis VI of France. Henry's marriage to Margaret brought him Ligny-en-Barrois as her dowry, though, by a clause in the marriage contract, it remained under the feudal suzerainty of the county of Bar. In contempt of this, Henry paid homage in 1256 to Theobald II of Navarre, in his capacity as Count of Champagne. Henry's brother-in-law, Theobald II of Bar, took advantage of the conflict then raging between Frederick III of Lorraine and the bishops of Metz. Henry V was a partisan of the duke and so Theobald took the side of the bishop.

Henry was captured in battle at Prény on 14 September 1266. On 8 September 1268, King Louis IX arbitrated between the two counts and Henry was freed and repossessed of Ligny, but under the suzerainty of the Barrois.

In 1256, Henry seized Namur while the reigning margrave, Baldwin II, was also reigning emperor in Constantinople. Baldwin relinquished his rights to Namur to Guy of Dampierre, Count of Flanders, who retook the margraviate from Henry.
The two parties made peace and Guy married Henry's daughter.

From Margaret he had the following issue:

Henry VI (died 1288), Count of Luxembourg
Waleran I (died 1288), Count of Ligny & Roussy
Isabelle (1247–1298), married Guy of Dampierre
Philippa (1252–1311), married John II, Count of Holland
Margaret
Felicitas
Joanna (died 1310), Abbess of Clairefontaine

He also had at least three bastard sons, including:
Henry, bastard of Luxembourg (died 1288), married Isabelle of Houffalize, heiress of Houffalize

Henry's marriage to Margaret brought him Ligny-en-Barrois as her dowry, though, by a clause in the marriage contract, it remained under the feudal suzerainty of the county of Bar.

On 8 September 1268, King Louis IX arbitrated between the two counts and Henry was freed and repossessed of Ligny, but under the suzerainty of the Barrois.

Henry inherited Luxembourg and Laroche following the death of his mother, Ermesinde, in 1247.

In 1256, Henry seized Namur while the reigning margrave, Baldwin II, was also reigning emperor in Constantinople. Baldwin relinquished his rights to Namur to Guy of Dampierre, Count of Flanders, who retook the margraviate from Henry. The two parties made peace and Guy married Henry's daughter.
