(1) Eubel, Hierarchia Catholica Medii Aevi, I, 17, says that he may have been pseudocardinal bishop of Frascati; but "Essai de liste générale des cardinaux. Les cardinaux du XIVè siècle jusqu'au Grand Schisme". Annuaire Pontifical Catholique 1930, p. 147, indicates that the see was occupied by Pseudocardinal Bonifazio Donoratico.
