Bayer (De Boppart), Thierry
Bayer (De Boppart), Thierry a French prelate, exchanged in 1365 the bishopric of Worms for that of Metz. The historians of his time have spoken in high terms of his personal qualities. He terminated the discutssions raised between the inhabitants of Metz and his predecessor, formed an alliance with the dukes of Lorraine and Bar, and with Charles IV combated the duke of Milan, concerning which affair he went as ambassador to Rome. The new strifes with the inhabitants of Messina, the quarrels with the clergy which he wished to settle, and the wars with the dukes of Lorraine and Bar occupied and disturbed all the rest of his life. He died Jan. 10, 1384. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
