Walter took pity on a monastery inmate and set him free; He was later made abbot of a new abbey in Pontoise by King Philip I. Walter reluctantly accepted, disgusted by the idea of a royalty-controlled institution, and tried numerous times to escape, stopping after being told to by Pope Gregory VII. He spent the rest of his life fighting against simony and cruelty of his clergy, which he was once arrested for but released.
