Profile

Born to the nobility, a member of the house of Cham, she was married to the Mazalin, Count of Portis, and the mother of one son. Widowed, she converted her castle into a hospital for the poor, and lived as a prayerful recluse at the Benedictine abbey of Saint Maritius in Niederaltaich, Bavaria, Germany. She became known for spiritual insights and wisdom, and was a much-sought advisor.
