Ogive of Luxembourg (aka Ogiva or Otgiva) was a member of the House of Luxembourg and a Countess of Flanders.[1]

Biography[edit]

Ogive was born to Frederick of Luxembourg and his wife Irmtrud of Wetterau. Her probable birth date of 995 makes it likely that she was one of Frederick's eldest children.[1]

Ogive married Baldwin IV, Count of Flanders, who sought to strengthen his connection to the royal house by marrying this niece of Queen Cunigunde of Germany. Ogive had a son in 1012, also called Baldwin.[1]

She died in 1030 and was buried at Saint Peter's Abbey, Ghent.
