Chancellor to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

He was in the midst of feuds until he was chosen for Chichester Cathedral. Then King Henry II confiscated his property and income.

Our Saint pretended not to notice. He just carried on, and Henry relented and returned his property.

But if he expected gratitude he didn't get it. Richard promptly sold everything and gave the proceeds to the poor.
