St Radboud of Utrecht was the grandson of the last pagan king of the Frisons of the Netherlands. He was raised by his uncle Gunther, bishop of Cologne, Germany, and educated at the convent school there.
He was part of the court of King Charles the Bald. He became the Benedictine Bishop of Utrecht, Netherlands in 900, joining the Benedictine order after taking his see, and in order to better govern it, for there was a strong Benedictine influence in the religious orders in his diocese.
He was noted for his support of the poor. Writer and poet of great intellect; some of his works have survived. He was forced to flee his diocese due to invasion by the Danes, and he lived his last years in exile.
