1024 – Death of Henry the Exuberant

Henry II of Germany spent his lifetime unifying the German lands, and was about to complete ecclesial reforms when he passed away in Göttingen and was buried in the cathedral of Bamberg where he had helped to establish a bishopric.

See Find a Grave.
See Google Arts for a wonderful story of the Bamberg Apocalypse manuscript, commissioned by Henry.
