Memorial

Profile

Daughter of Saint Framechildis and the Count Badefrid. Her parents arranged a marriage for her for political reasons, but Austrebertha was drawn to religious life. Benedictine nun, receiving the veil from Saint Omer at Abbeville, France. Abbess at Jumieges, and at Pavilly. Miracle worker and visionary; at one point in her early life she got a foreshadow of her life – she looked at her reflection in a river and saw a veil over her head.
