Historique: Adolphe de la Marck
Born in August 1288, is the third son of Eberhard III Count of the Marck and Ermengarde of Berg. He is Provost of St. Martin in Worms in 1298 (at the age of 10 years). In 1308, he is Provost of Saint-Séverin in Cologne and is canon in 1310. He studied at the University of Orleans. Pope Clement V entrusts him, on April 4, 1313, the principality of Liège on the recommendation of Philippe le Bel, king of France. He is consecrated on June 10, 1313. He is one of the most authoritarian princes of his time, imbued with his authority, impetuous and haughty. He is in perpetual struggle against his subjects. He signs the peace of Fexhe, June 18, 1316, which governs the manner in which the bishop must exercise his judicial authority. This is the basis of the constitution of the country of Liège. He died during an outburst of anger on November 3, 1344 in Clermont-sur-Meuse. He is buried in the choir of the Liège Cathedral.
