ADALBALD (St.) Conf. (Feb. 2) (7th cent.) A pious nobleman of the Court of King Clovis II of France. He was the husband of St. Rictrude, and, like their parents, their four children are publicly venerated as Saints. St. Adalbald was murdered while on a journey (A.D. 645), under circumstances which have led to his being honoured in many places as a Martyr.
