Frutolf of Michelsberg (d. 1103)

Prior of the monastery of Michelsberg near Bamberg, and author of a universal chronicle dealing with events from the Creation up to the year 1099.

Frutolf’s work, which contains information about the First Crusade (1096-1099), particularly relating to the People’s Expeditions, was used as the basis for the chronicle of Ekkehard of Aura, who provided a continuation up to the year 1125, including extended descriptions of the First Crusade and the Crusade of 1101.
