Webgraphy. Catalog of the abbots of Monte Cassino, the cardinal is no. 47.

(1) According to "Essai de liste générale des cardinaux. Les cardinaux du XIIè siècle". Annuaire Pontifical Catholique 1928, p. 129, he had been created pseudocardinal by Antipope Anacletus II with that title, and that he later made his submission to Pope Innocent II, who recognized his promotion and title. Other sources do not mention his promotion by the antipope. G. A. Loud, The Latin Church in Norman Italy (Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2007), p. 241, says that he "seems to have been an honorary cardinal from 1141, but never an active member of the college."
