  • Notes 
    • The noble House of d’Udekem originally came from the Duchy of Brabant, where it has lived since the 12th century; it takes its
      name from a domain in Bierbeek, near Leuven. It produced many knights. One of these, Nicolas d’Udekem, is mentioned on the list of those who fought at the battle of Basweiler in 1371. Another, Léon d’Udekem, councillor of the City of Leuven, was in
      command of a Burgundian cavalry corps, when Luxembourg was taken in 1480. Others fought for the Prince-Elect of Cologne,
      the Duke of Guise, the Prince de Chimay, the King of Spain etc.

      Charles Ghislain d’Udekem was given the title of de Baron de Gerpinnes by Emperor Charles VI in 1716.

      In 1816, Jacques François Joseph d’Udekem was created a Baron, the title being transferable to first-born male-line descendants.

      By a Royal Decree in 1886, the family obtained consent to link its name with that of d’Acoz, an ancient family domain.

      They were, amongst other things, master foresters of the Duchy of Brabant, and burgomasters and senators of Leuven in the 18th and 19th centuries.
