== Vita ==
His birthplace is unknown but he may have been born in [[Monmouth]] in [[Wales]], possibly of [[Brittany|Breton]] ancestry. Certainly he had significant connections to [[Monmouth]] as his name suggests and the descriptions of [[Caerleon]] in ''[[Historia Regum Britanniae]]'' indicate familarity with the area. He studied at [[Oxford University]], where he met [[Walter of Oxford|Walter]], who was [[Archdeacon of Oxford]]. On 21 February [[1152]] [[Archbishop of Canterbury|Archbishop]] [[Theobald of Bec|Theobald]] consecrated Geoffrey as bishop of [[St Asaph]], having ordained him a priest 10 days before. "There is no evidence that he ever visited his see" writes [[Lewis Thorpe]], "and indeed the wars of [[Owain Gwynedd]] make this most unlikely."<ref>From the introduction to his translation of ''The History of the Kings of Britain'' (London: Penguin Books, 1966), p. 12.</ref> Geoffrey attested about six different charters between the years 1129 and 1151; the date of his death is recorded in the Welsh Chronicles.--->
