Bruno I of Meissen

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bruno I of Meissen († around 1065) was Bishop of Meissen from 1046 to 1065 .

In this early period of the Meissner bishopric, various chroniclers passed on different traditions and thus made it difficult to date the bishops. A bishop Meinward named at this time , who is said to have succeeded Eido II , has proven to be a transmission error by Reinward (1140-1150).

The existence of Bruno I is reliably proven by - only - three deeds of gift. Margrave of Meissen was to 1062 Wilhelm , the Otto I succeeded.
