    Gender Male 
    History Arnulf was born about 961, the son of Baudouin III, count of Flanders, and Mathilde of Saxony. His father died in 962, when Arnulf was an infant, and his grandfather Arnulf I acted as regent for him. When Arnulf I died three years later (in 965), the regency was held by their kinsman Baudouin Balso.

    About 968, when Arnulf was still a child, he was married to Rozala/Susanna of Italy, the daughter of Berengar II, king of Italy, and Willa of Tuscany. It is almost certain that his wife was christened Susanna, and that Rozala (\'little Red\') was her nickname. She was known as Susanna in and after both her marriages.

    By the time Arnulf attained his majority in 976, Flanders had lost some of the southern territory acquired by Arnulf I. The latter had given some parts of Picardy to King Lothar of France to help assure his grandson\'s succession, and gave Boulogne as a fief to another relative. Then early in Arnulf\'s minority Lothar had taken Ponthieu and given it to Hugh Capet, and the first counts of Guînes had established themselves.

    Arnulf and Rozala/Susanna had two children, of whom their son Baudouin IV, born in 980, would have progeny. Arnulf died on 30 March 987 and was succeeded by Baudouin.  [1
