Book of Saints – Gontram

Saint GuntramnusArticle

(Guntramnus) King (March 28) (6th century) A grandson of Clovis and of Saint Clotilde. He became King of Orleans in the partition of the Frankish monarchy and governed his people in justice and mercy, going so far as to pardon two of his would-be assassins. His sin in divorcing his wife and over-hastily ordering the execution of his physician, like David, he wept over till the day of his death, which happened A.D. 593, when he was in his sixty-ninth year. Beloved by his subjects, he was at once by them acclaimed as a Saint. Miracles as well in life as after death are attributed to him.
