- Austrude of Laon
Daughter of Saint Blandinus of Laon and Saint Sadalberga; sister of Saint Baldwin. When Sadalberga withdrew from the world to become abbess at Saint John the Baptist convent at Laon, France, Anstrudis went with her as a nun. On the death of her mother, Anstrudis reluctantly became abbess of the convent. Noted for her care for her sisters, her all night vigils, and her self-imposed austerities. Ebroin, mayor of the palace, viciously persecuted the Church of the day, and had her brother killed. He threatened Anstudis, but her simple faith won him over.
