Gerard I of Guelders (c. 1060 – 8 March 1129) was Count of Guelders (Gelre in Dutch). He was born as Gerard of Wassenberg, the son of Dietrich of Wassenberg. He was the first count of Guelders.

    Gerhard III. von Wassenberg (Gerhard I. von Geldern, der Flaminius) (* um 1068; † 16. Oktober 1129)[1] war der erste Graf von Geldern der Familie der Flamenses.

    Sein Vater war vermutlich der Graf Heinrich III. von Wassenberg[2], nach anderer Ansicht Dietrich I. Flamens.[3] Gerhard wurde 1085 als Graf von Wassenberg, 1096 erstmals als „Graf von Geldern“ erwähnt. Der Titel „Landgraf“ erscheint ebenfalls 1096. Er gilt als Stammvater der Grafen von Geldern aus dem Hause Wassenberg (der Flamenses), das 1371 im Mannesstamm erlosch.
    Gerhard benannte sich abwechselnd nach Wassenberg (Gerhard III. von Wassenberg) und nach Geldern (Gerhard I. von Geldern), bis sich 1118 Geldern bei der Benennung durchsetzte.
