Adalbald, Saint and Confessor
Adalbald, Saint And Confessor, was grandson of P. Gertrude, and his mother's name was Gerberta. He married St. Richtrudis, by whom he had St. Maurontus, his eldest son, who afterwards became abbot, and three virgin saintly daughters, Clotsendis, Euselia, and Adalsendis. On his way to Gascony, Adalbald was waylaid and murdered by persons unknown. His relics are at St. Amand, Flanders. He is mentioned in the Belgian martyrology, and in Saussaye's supplement to the Gallican. His day is Feb. 2, and he died about 652. See Baring-Gould, Lives of the Saints, ii, 41.
