    History Source :
    "Giselbert of Luxembourg (c. 1007 \endash 14 August 1059) was count of Salm and of Longwy, then count of Luxembourg from 1047 to 1059. He was the son of Frederick of Luxembourg, count of Moselgau, and perhaps of Ermentrude of Gleiberg.
    At first count of Salm and of Longwy, on his brother Henry II's death he inherited the county of Luxembourg, as well as providing the income for the abbeys of Saint-Maximin in Trier and Saint-Willibrod in Echternach. He got into an argument with the archbishop of Trier Poppon as to the abbaye Saint-Maximin, which was arbitrated by his brother Adalbéron III, bishop of Metz.
    In 1050, since the population of the town of Luxembourg had risen considerably, he expanded the city by rebuilding a new fortified wall around it.
    By an unknown wife, he had :
    Conrad I (1040 † 1086), count of Luxembourg
    Hermann I († 1088), count of Salm, founder of the House of Salm
    daughter, married Thierry of Amensleben
    daughter, married at Kuno, count of Oltingen
    Adalbéron († 1097 at Antioch), canon at Metz
    Jutta, married Udo of Limbourg"  [1
