He also courageously opposed the actions of the Frankish king Thierry III (r. 670-687) and his mayor of the palace, Ebroin, in executing Bishop St. Leodegarius of Autun, and he secured reparations for the sin from the ruler, He spent his final years at St. Vaast Monastery, Arras, an institution that King Thierry supported. Vindician died while on a visit to Brussels, Belgium.
