Enimia (or Emmia), Saint

Enimia (or Emmia), Saint a Frankish princess, lived in 631. She was, according to some hagiographers, the sister or daughter of king Dagobert I. She retired about 631 into the mountains of Gevaudan, near the source of the Tarn, and constructed there a double monastery for both sexes. After having been consecrated by St. Llare, bishop of Javoux (now Mende), Enimia took the title of an abbess, and died in the government of her communities. She is commemorated October 6.
