Queen and Abbess.She was not a happy Queen as she had been kept captive by an uncle who had killed her father.
She was then sold off to King Clothaire of Neustria in Germany, where she was again kept in custody until she agreed to marriage.
Then the king murdered her brother. Now she had had enough and fled churchwards to escape these machinations.
Surprisingly Clothaire didn't chase after her. In fact he even helped her to build a convent.
