  • Notes 
    • He was the son of Baldwin III of Flandre and Mathilde Billung of Saxony, daughter of Herman, Duke of Saxony. His Father Baldwin III died in 962, when Arnulf was just an infant, while Arnulf's Grandfather, Arnulf I, was still alive. When Arnulf I died three years later (965), the regency was held by his kinsman Baldwin Balso, who died in 973.

      By the time Arnulf attained his majority in 976, Flanders had lost some of the southern territory acquired by Arnulf I. The latter had given some parts of Picardy to King Lothar of France to help assure his grandson's succession, and gave Boulogne as a fief to another relative. Then early in Arnulf's minority Lothar had taken Ponthieu and given it to Hugh Capet, and the first counts of Guînes had established themselves. Arnulf died on 30 March, 987 at age 26. Shortly after Arnulf's death his widow married Robert II, King of France as his first Wife.
