Name

+ Baronè Francesco Gaetano Grèco d’Edessa

Persona

A Sicilian Byzantine Baron and Suffrage Bishop, from the Year of Our Lord 1336.

      I was born into a noble and pious Christian family in the Sicilian Village of Linguaglossa, in Catania. I am the 4th of four sons. I dedicated my life to the Church, but, instead of being a Pastor, the church educated me. I received many Academic Degrees in Research, Canon Law, & Theology. After attending university, the Church allowed me to travel to different Monasteries and Cathedrals, to share my knowledge. Later, I became a Visiting Suffrage Bishop, learning where I was residing, with higher authority and dignity of an Apostolic Visitor.

      After many years, I settled down in the East Kingdom; in the Crown Province of Østgär∂r's Canton of Lions End. I have served in many Kingdom, Crown Provincial, & Canton Offices, as well as in many Royal Households.

      I am a Teacher & Diplomat and have served several households (Great and Small) as their Chaplain. For the several decades, now, I have served the Teutonic Order's House Bloodguard as a Member and as their in-house herald, as well as their Prelate.
