Ansegis (or Ansusus, Ansersus, Anseisus, Finally Aneigisus)

Ansegis (Or Ansusus, Ansersus, Anseisus, Finally Aneigisus)

bishop OF TROY, was raised to the episcopacy in A.D. 912, and became, according to Mabillon, chancellor to the king of France, Ralph or Rodulf. Prelate and warrior according to the spirit of the epoch, he was wounded in 925 in an engagement with the Normans, who at that time ravaged Burgundy. In 949 Hugh the Grand, duke of France, sent him against Louis IV of Outremer. In an encounter with Robert, count of Troy, he returned to the court of Otho, who gave him more troops with which to besiege the episcopal city; but these abandoned him after the defeat of their compatriots before the city of Sens, which they had attempted to pillage. The authors of Gallia Christiana place this event in 959, and suppose that the bishop was restored to his bishopric the year following; but the first date is more trustworthy. He died about 971.
