Profile

A princess who wished to devote herself to God; to avoid an arranged marriage she fled to Gloucester and worked as a maid for a baker. The baker‘s wife, jealous of the young woman, killed her and threw her body into a well. Her body was recovered and buried nearby. Miracles began to be reported at her graveside, and when the relics were moved, the miracles followed them.
