He lived at the court of his uncle  Lothair until 848, when, hearing of the deposition of his  brother, he set out in March 849 with a band of followers to claim the Aquitainian realm. He was captured by Vivian, count of Maine at the Loire and sent to  Charles the Bald. He was put in the monastery of Corbie as either a monk or a deacon. He escaped in 854 to recruit an army to fight for his  brother. He had little success and fled to the court of Louis the German , who made him the archbishop of Mainz and archchancellor on 8 March 856. He made a respectable bishop and died on 4 June 863 and was buried in St. Alban's Abbey, Mainz.
