The County of Brabant (1085–1183) is a small land area in the Netherlands. The County is located 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, beginning in the 13th century.
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.
