Archbishop of Cologne. Saint. Duke of Lorraine. He was the youngest son of King Heinrich I. the Fowler and Mathilde von Ringelheim, and brother of Otto I. the Great. He was Ottos chancellor from 940 to 953. He had great political influence upon the emperor. In 953 he became Archbishop and in September of the same year he became Administrator of the duchy of Lorraine. He always stood by his brother and tried to serve both kingdom and church the same way. On May 26, 961 he crowned his nephew Otto II. in Aachen co-regent. During Otto I. third italian campaign he was trusted with the well-being of Ottos son and together with Archbishop Wilhelm of Mainz, a illegitimate son of the emperor, reigned the empire.
