Goth, Berand De
Goth, Berand De a French prelate, brother of pope Clement V, and son of Berand I, lord of Villandrault (diocese of Bordeaux), was appointed to the archiepiscopate of Lyons in 1288. Berand made his brother Bertrand de Goth his vicar- general. This appointment led to a long controversy. Berand was made cardinalbishop of Albano in 1294, by Celestine V. Boniface VIII appointed him his legate in France, to restore peace between the kings of France and England. Berand died on his return from England, without having seen the end of the dissension, July 12, 1297. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
