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 G├Âttingen 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.
