Archbishop Walram von Jülich

Period of office 1332-1349

Archbishop Walram von Jülich studied and received his doctorate in Paris. He was appointed by the Pope against the candidate of the Cathedral Chapter. Walram was the brother of the powerful Duke Gerhard von Jülich. Politically, he was not equal to the conflict between the Kaiser and the Pope. Buried under the growing debts of the Archdiocese, he fled to Paris after a kind of resignation and soon died. He had a good relationship with the city of Cologne, with which he concluded a treaty of friendship in 1334.
