Archdeacon of Macon, France. When he saw he was to be made bishop, he became a monk at Cluny Abbey. Chosen assistant abbot in 954, and then abbot in 965 much against his will. Mayeul was devoted to learning, and led his brothers by good example. Counselor to Emperor Otto I and Emperor Otto II. Otto II wanted to put him forth as papabile, but Mayeul would have none of it.
