It is not known for certain whether he came from Poland or from Germany, but he was certainly a Knight of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. At the time of Frederick II he served in a little church at Caltagirone in Sicily, caring for widows and orphans devotedly and without thought of himself. He died about 1271 and is still honoured at Caltagirone, where his relics are venerated in the Basilica of San Giacomo.
