Gertrude, St

Gertrude, St born in 626, was the daughter of Pepin of Landen, majordomo of the king of Austrasia, France. She was religiously brought up, and finally entered the nunnery of Nivelles, nine miles from Brussels, of which she was elected abbess at the early age of twenty. She died there March 17, 659, and that day has since been kept in commemoration of her throughout Brabant. Acta Sanctorum, March 17.
