Hucbald also called HUCBOLD, HUGBALD, UBALD, and HUBALD, a celebrated monk, was probably born about 850, and was educated by his learned relative Milo (q.v.) in the monastery of St. Amandus in Flandern. After Milo's death, Hucbald succeeded him as teacher and presiding officer of the school of this monastery. About 893, archbishop Fulco, of Rheims, called Hucbald to that city, to preside over the cathedral school there lie died in 930. He distinguished himself greatly in music, and was the first to establish the laws of harmony (diaphonia). His lives of some of the saints are considered valuable, especially Vita S. Lebuini, Vita Aldegundis, Vita Rictrudis. See Aschbach, Kirchen-Lex. 3, 342; Herzog, Real- Encyklopadie, 6, 297 sq. (J. H. W.)
