BiographyEdit

 
Nassau Castle

Arnold was a son of Dudo of Laurenburg (German: Dudo von Laurenburg) and the fourth of the seven daughters of count Louis I of Arnstein, possibly her name was Irmgardis or Demudis.[1]

Arnold is mentioned as count of Laurenburg between 1124 and 1148.[1][2] He probably ruled together with his brother Rupert I.[1][2] Arnold and Rupert built Nassau Castle around 1120.[2]

In 1124, Arnold became the Vogt of Idstein. Idstein had come under the control of Count Dudo in 1122. Arnold also later became the Vogt of St. George's Monastery Church in Limburg an der Lahn.

No marriage has been mentioned of Arnold.[1]
