Life


Robert was keeper of the king's seal, usually known as Lord Chancellor from 1133 to 1135.[1] He at one point was a monk at Reading Abbey, where he may have forged charters in favour of the abbey.[2]
Robert was nominated to the see of London by the Empress Matilda[3] and consecrated in 1141, possibly about July.[4] He died in 1150, and as his death was commemorated on both 28 September and 29 September, he probably died on one of those dates in 1150.[3]
