Notger is a native of Swabia. He studied at the monastery of St. Gallen (Switzerland). He succeeds Bishop Eracle. He was appointed bishop of Liège by Otto 1er of the Holy Roman Empire. On April 6th, 980, Otto II (son of the previous one) confirms to the church of Liège, the enjoyment of all its property and possessions. This is the beginning of the principality of Liège (which will last nearly 1000 years). Notger obtains the privilege of "general immunity," that is, Liege is henceforth independent of the county powers, and is directly attached to the emperor. This new system of governance based on temporal (prince) and spiritual (bishop) gives the emperor the advantage of keeping control of his territories after the death of the bishop. In fact, since the bishop had no heirs, the episcopal possessions returned under his authority and thus did not create a new comtale dynasty. Notger died on 10 April 1008 and was buried in the church of Saint John the Evangelist in Liege.
