Biography of Abbon (945-1004)

Theologian and French chronicler, born in Orleans in 945 and died in 1004. He studied all the Sciences of his time. In 970 he was elected Abbot of the monastery of Fleury, which was religious. He had feuds with some bishops to defend the rights of his order. The Robert King sent him twice to Rome, to placate Gregorio V, who wanted to bring the Kingdom into question. When the Pope granted him what he requested, returned from his trip and dealt with reforming the Abbey of la Reole, in Gascony, which depended on the Fleury. He was killed in a dispute raised between French and Gascon.
