    History Baudouin was born about 1056, the younger son of Baudouin VI-I, count of Flanders and count of Hainault, and Richilde, heiress of Hainault. Baudouin became count of Hainault after the death of his older brother Arnulf III. The family claim to the title of Count of Flanders was lost by his brother\'s death, passing instead to their uncle Robert \'the Friesian\'.

    In 1084 Baudouin married Ida de Louvain, daughter of Henri II, comte de Louvain, and Adela van de Betuwe. They had nine children, of whom four would have progeny.

    Baudouin joined the First Crusade in the company of Godfrey of Bouillon (rather than with his cousin Robert II of Flanders, whose family was still at odds with his own), after selling some of his property to the bishopric of Li├Ęge. In 1098 he was sent back to Constantinople with Hugues I Magnus, Comte de Vermandois et de Valois, after the siege of Antioch, to seek assistance from Byzantine emperor Alexius I Komnenos. However, Baudouin disappeared during a raid by the Seljuk Turks in Anatolia, and was probably murdered in the mountains near Nicaea.  [1
