Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Waldric was the eighth Lord Chancellor and Lord Keeper of England, from 1102 to 1107. He was also Bishop of Laon from 1106 to 1112.At the battle of Tinchebray (1106) he captured Robert Curthose, Henry I of England''s brother and leader of the opposing forces as Duke of Normandy.As bishop he was greedy and violent; he is portrayed in very unflattering terms in the 1115 chronicle Monodiae of Guibert of Nogent. He had Gerard of Quierzy murdered.His election as bishop was contested - at the time of the battle he was in minor orders only - but it was upheld by Pope Paschal II at the Council of Langres. He was murdered, beneath Laon Cathedral, by citizens of Laon who had set up a commune in the city. Guibert''s account of this event alludes to Isengrin, making it of literary-historical value.
