Beorchtgyth (or Berthgyth)
Beorchtgyth (Or Berthgyth)
an early English abbess who addresses two-letters to a man named Balthard, probably her brother, desiring to see him. If the Balthard in question be the Kentish nobleman of that name, Berthgyth would seem to have been in a German monastery. She was a daughter of the missionary abbess Chunihilt, aunt of Lullus, sent by Boniface into Thuringia.
