Daimbert or Dagobert

Daimbert Or Dagobert the first Latin patriarch of Jerusalem. While he was bishop of Pisa, pope Urban II conferred upon him the sovereignty of Corsica for an annual tribute of fifty lives, and appointed him papal legate in the East. In Nov. 1095, Daimbert was present at the Council of Clermont when Urban II preached the first crusade, and he joined the crusade at the head of troops from Pisa and Genoa. When Daimbert arrived in Palestine, Godfrey of Bouillon was already master of Jerusalem. At a general meeting of the Christian chiefs, held on Christmas. 1099, Daimbert was elected patriarch of Jerusalem, in the place of one Arnulphus who was deposed. Godfrey had to leave to Daimbert the sovereignty of Jaffa, and of that quarter of Jerusalem in which the Church of the Resurrection was situated. On the death of Godfrey, Daimbert aspired to the throne of Jerusalem, but finally had to yield to Baldwin, and to crown the new king. Falling out with Baldwin, he was expelled by the latter, and Arnulphus returned to the patriarchate. Daimbert went to Italy, and prevailed upon pope Pascal II to decide in his favor. He intended to return to Jerusalem and to enforce the papal decision, but died on his way at Palermo, in 1107. —Hoefer, Biographie Generale, 12:792.
