Henry, Count of Portugal
Henry was the father of the first king of Portugal, Afonso Henriques and the first member of the House of Burgundy to rule the County of Portugal.
Born in 1066 in Dijon, Duchy of Burgundy, Count Henry was the youngest son of Henry, the second son of Robert I, Duke of Burgundy. His two older brothers, Hugh I and Odo, inherited the duchy. Even though his mother Sibylla is often mentioned in traditional genealogies as the daughter of Berenguer Ramon I, Count of Barcelona, and his wife Guisla de Lluçà, this filiation is not recorded in any medieval charter.
