Gozlin (Lat. Gauzlenus), a French prelate and statesman, was born about the beginning of the ninth century. According to some he was the son of Boricon, count of Anjou, and to others the natural son of Louis the Gentle. He became a monk at Rheims about 848, and soon after abbot of St. Germain-des-Pres. Gozlin, like most of the abbots of that time, was also a warrior. In 858 he was made prisoner by the Normans, and had to purchase his liberty by a heavy ransom. After 855 he held the office of chancellor to Charles the Bald, and about 883 he was appointed bishop of Paris. He died April 16, 886. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
