About Konrad von Lichtenberg, bishop of Strasburg

From Wikipedia: English French German

Conrad de Lichtenberg (1240–1299) was a bishop of Strasbourg in the 13th century.

Lichtenberg was born to a wealthy family and entered the clergy at the age of 13. He was elected Bishop of Strasbourg in 1273.

Credit is given to Lichtenberg for the construction of the Western facade of Notre-Dame de Strasbourg, realized by French architect Erwin von Steinbach (1244–1318). Lichtenberg is buried there in Chapel Saint Jean.

The Château de Lichtenberg in Alsace, France remains today.

--------------------

In 1299 he came to the aid of his brother-in-law Egino I von Freiburg in a fight against the rebellious citizens of Freiburg. He was stabbed by Metzger Hauri ["Butcher" Hauri], and later died.
