Bishop of Liege
Died 1121
Liège, Belgium
Venerated in Roman Catholic Church
Feast 27 May

Frederick was Bishop of Liege, succeeding Bishop Alexander (who was forced to stand down after being charged with acts of simony, 1119). As a result, the newly appointed Bishop Frederick suffered open animosity from Alexander’s supporters. It is believed that Frederick was poisoned by the count of Louvain,[1] and suffered death in 1121.
