Seventh century relative of Saint Pepin of Landen. Married young to Count Witger. Mother of Saint Gudula of Brussels, Saint Emebert, and Saint Reineldis, all of whom she taught herself, including religion. When the youngest was grown, both Amalburga and her husband retired to Benedictine houses, the Count to Lobbes, Belgium, Amalburga to Maubeuge Abbey where she embraced a life of asceticism and prayer. Received the veil from Saint Willibrord of Echternach. She once crossed a lake by riding on the back of a giant sturgeon, which led to her representation on or with a fish.
