Adopted Children / Clotilde 475–545 Feast Day: June 3

A Christian princess from Burgundy, Clotilde married the king of the Franks and converted him to Christianity. After his death, her three sons fought amongst themselves and her daughter was forced into a terrible marriage. She adopted her three grandsons after the murder of their father. Two of these children were murdered by their uncles; the third, she safely hid in a monastery. She retired to Toulouse to escape these events and worked among the poor for the rest of her life.
