Archbishop Hermann III. von Hochstaden

Period of office 1089-1099

Archbishop Hermann von Hochstaden was called "the Rich". He was born to a noble Rhenish family and was a retainer of the Kaiser. Although he attempted to intervene for the Jews who were persecuted during the first crusade, he was unable to protect them effectively. He crowned Heinrich V king in Aachen in 1099.
