St. Rigobert, Bishop of Rheims, France

Also "Robert."

From Butler's Lives of the Saints 1895:

HE was abbot of Orbais, afterwards bishop of Rheims, was favored with
the gift of miracles, and suffered an unjust banishment under Charles
Martel. He was recalled by Pepin, but finding Milo in possession of his
see, retired to Gernicour, a village four or five leagues from Rheims,
where he led a retired life in the exercises of penance and prayer. He
died about the year 750, and was buried in the church of St. Peter at
Gernicour, which he had built. Hincmar, the fifth bishop from him,
translated his relics to the abbey of St. Theodoric, and nine years
after, to the church of St. Dionysius at Rheims. Fulco, Hincmar's
successor, removed them into the metropolitan church of our lady, in
which the greater part is preserved in a rich shrine; but a portion is
kept in the church of St. Dionysius there, and another portion in the
cathedral of Paris, where a chapel bears his name. See his anonymous
life in Bollandus; also Flodoard, l. 2. Hist. Rhemens. &c.
