Misc. Notes
Baldwin united the countships of Hainaut and Flanders (since his wife's brother Count Philip had no children), but there was opposition to this from the French king who forced Baldwin to cede Artois, St. Omer, Lens, Hesdin and much of southern Flanders to France and to permit Count Philip's widow to keep certain towns "in right of her dowry." {-Encycl.Brit., 1956, 9:357} Baldwin V was Count of Flanders 1191-1195.
