Albert II

Albert II

archbishop OF MENTZ, was brother of the preceding, and succeeded him in 1138. In 1141 he allowed himself to become involved in the conspiracy of the Saxon nobles, who wished to annul as surreptitious the election of the emperor Conrad, made in 1138. A little later he became reconciled with that prince, and engaged to serve in the crusade which he was then planning and which was carried into effect in 1147. The death of this prelate, which occurred at Erfurt, June 23, 1141, forbade his putting this promise into execution. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
