Marbrianus de Orto (c. 1460 – 1529)

We know nothing of the origins, youth and education of Marbriano de Orto (c. 1460-1529) other than that he was the illegitimate son of a priest. His surname is probably that of his mother, Dujardin, and he was trained as a chorister somewhere in the diocese of Doornik/Tournai, in present-day Belgium. The fact that the Pope granted de Orto a benefice in 1486 which secured him a lifelong income from the diocese seems to confirm his close relationship to it from the outset of his career.
