Book of Saints – Letard


(Liudhard) (Saint) Bishop (May 7) (6th century) The French Bishop (of what See is unknown) who attended Queen Bertha to England on the occasion of her marriage to King Ethelbert of Kent, and who doubtless did his part in ensuring the welcome given to Saint Augustine and his brethren. However, nothing definite is known concerning him. Popular veneration led to his being accounted a Saint after his death, which probably took place about A.D. 600. Alban Butler and others assert that he had been Bishop of Senlis in the North of France.
