kiRadbod was the Archbishop of Trier from 883 until 915.

In 898, Radbod received complete immunity from all taxes for the entire episcopal territory from Swentibold. He obtained from Louis the Child the district and city of Trier, as well as the right to have a mint and impose customs duties. From Charles the Simple he gained the right of free election for his diocese of Trier. In this way the secular possessions of the bishops of Trier, which had sprung from the valuable donations of the Merovingian, were raised to a secular principality
