Foundation Information
 

In 1313 the Archbishop Henry II of Virneburg permitted the Augustinian nuns of Dietkirchen in Bonn to move to Cologne on a property purchased for them by the Cologne patrician Franco de Cornu. Franco made further donations to S. Agatha during its first years in Cologne. Although the S. Agatha was formally an archiepiscopal foundation, it was accomplished with patrician assistance.
