The Count of Flanders, Charles the Good (1083-1127) was the son of Cnut, King of Denmark and Adela of Flanders, daughter of Robert the Frisian. He inherited Flanders by his mother in 1119 and, after fighting in the Holy Land and refused the throne of Jerusalem, administered a just man in fee, which earned him great popularity and his nickname. He was assassinated March 2, 1127 in the Saint-Donatien in Bruges by the henchmen of Bertulf, chancellor of Flanders and first buried on site. His vassals and his overlord, the King of France Louis VI, besieged the fortress where rioters barricaded. After the massacre of these, the king and the bishop organized a solemn funeral in the church St. Kitts.
