From Saint Wiki
Adalbert of Bremen. Appointed by the Emperor Henry III. Archbishop of Bremen and of Hamburg in 1043; legate of the Pope in 1050. He was a man of genius, but domineering and violent. After the death of Henry III., he was for some time tutor of Henry IV., whom he wished to acquire absolute power, in order that he might obtain the patriarchate of the North. The opposition of the German princes hindered him from attaining this double end. He died at Goslar, May 16th, 1072.
