(1) This is according to "Essai de liste générale des cardinaux. Les cardinaux du XIè siècle". Annuaire Pontifical Catholique 1927, p. 133, no. 2. Cristofori, Cronotasi dei cardinali di Santa Romana Chiesa, p. 11, says that he was named bishop of S. Rufina or Selva Candida in 1035. Cardella, Memorie storiche de' cardinali della Santa Romana Chiesa, I, pt. 1, 99, includes him among the cardinals created by Pope Benedict IX, but cites Ferdinandus Ughellus, who gives biographical information that belongs to his predecessor, Cardinal Pietro (1025); Ughellus was one of the collaborators who updated Chacón's Vitae et res gestae Pontificum Romanorum et S. R. E. Cardinalium edition of 1630. Chacón, Vitæ, et res gestæ Pontificvm Romanorum et S. R. E. Cardinalivm, I, col. 780, no. VII, says that he subscribed a papal bull in favor of the church of Florence issued in 1036.
