Freobaldus the Rich


Traders and craftsmen earn their living in the ‘vicus bonnensis’, a settlement along what is now Remigiusstraße which enjoys a robust growth in the neighbourhood of the collegiate church of Saint Cassius. This ‘vicus’ accommodates a chequered community of long-distance traders with a tinge of adventure. We do know one of them. His name was Freobaldus, presumably of Anglo-Saxon descent. He had acquired great wealth. That is at least what Markward, abbot of ‘Prüm, tells in a document.
