Duke of Brabant

The title Duke of Brabant was created when the counts of Leuven acquired the duchy of Lower Lorraine after the death of Godfrey of Bouillon. As the importance of Lower Lorraine fell, the counts of Leuven started to name themselves after Brabant, the region in which Leuven is located.
