Gui Daxiens

Gui D'axiens (thirty- fourth bishop) was born about the beginning of the 11th century, being the son of Ingelramne I, count of Ponthieu. He studied at the abbey of St. Riquier, and was appointed archdeacon of Amiens in 1049. The bishop of that city sent him some time afterwards to Rome, to obtain a sanction from the pope for the pretensions of the bishop. Gui returned to France without success, and was appointed bishop of Amiens in 1058. Ten years afterwards he accompanied, as almoner, Mathilde, the wife of William the Conqueror, into England. He died in 1076, leaving in Latin a piece of poetry on the battle of Hastings. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
