(also known as Richimirus) Died c.715. Little is known about Saint Richimir, except that he settled with his disciples in the Loire Valley. Under the patronage of the bishop of Le Mans, France, Saint Richimir founded a monastery (later called after him Saint-Rigomer-des-Bois) and gave it the Benedictine Rule (Attwater2, Benedictines, Coulson).
