Hunegund was drawn to religious life, but was compelled to marry against her wishes. She convinced her future husband to accompany her on a pilgrimage to Rome, Italy, and then got him to agree that she should become a Benedictine nun, receiving the veil from Pope Saint Vitalian. When they returned home, Hunegund entered the convent at Homblieres in northern France ;her ex-future husband became a priest, and served as chaplain to the convent.
