The County of Brabant (1085–1183) is a small land area in the modern-day Netherlands. The County is situated to the west of Brussels. When the Duchy of Brabant was formed in 1085/1086, the name Brabant was applied to the entire country under the control of the Dukes of Brabant, from the 13th century on.
Upon the death of Count Palatine Herman II of Lotharingia in 1085, Emperor Henry IV assigned his fief between the Dender and Zenne rivers as the Landgraviate of Brabant to Count Henry III of Leuven and Brussels.
