Benedictine monk, sometimes listed as Rainold or Reynold. He was supposedly a descendant of Charlemagne and was the forth son mentioned in William Caxton's romantic poem Aymon. Entering the Benedictine monastery of Pantaleon, Cologne, Germany, he was appointed the head of the building program in the abbey but was murdered by the stonemasons, who were annoyed by the fact that Reinold worked harder than they did. He was beaten to death with hammers and his body thrown into a pool near the Rhine. His body was found through divine means. Reinold is considered a patron of stonemasons.
