Eucherius [1]

the thirty-second bishop of Orleans, was born there, of noble parents, towards the close of the 7th century; devoted himself early to a monastic life at Jumieges; was elected to the see on the death of his uncle, in 717; administered it with remarkable success, but was banished to Cologne, in 732, by Charles Martel, apparently for resisting a confiscation of the Church revenues; and died at a place near Liege in 738 (or 742). He is commemorated February 20.
