    • Excerpt from Wikipedia:

      Was the count of Luxembourg from 1247 to his death and the count of Namur between 1256 and 1264 as Henry III. He was the son and successor of Waleran III Of Limburg and Ermesinda of Luxembourg.

      He married Margaret, daughter of Henry II, Count of Bar, who 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 Preny on 14 Sep 1266. On 8 Sept 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.
