Gui De Boulogne

Gui De Boulogne (or D'AUVERGNE), a French prelate, was born in 1320, being the son of Robert, count of Auvergne. After having entered holy orders, he became canon and afterwards chancellor of the Church of Amiens. In 1340 he was elected archbishop of Lyons, and two years afterwards was appointed cardinal by Clement VI. That pope, having reduced the jubilee from one hundred to fifty years, sent, in 1350, Gui, with cardinal Ceccan, to Rome to reopen there the holy year. A short time afterwards Gui was sent as legate to Hungary to settle a difference which had arisen between Louis, king of Hungary, and the queen Jeannette of Naples. Some time after his return to France Gregory XI sent him to Spain, to effect a reconciliation of the kings of Castile and Portugal. He died at Lerida, November 25, 1373, and was buried at the abbey of Bouchet, in the diocese of Clermont. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
