BiographyEdit

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.
