Trudpert is the name of a hermit and founder of a celebrated monastery in the Breisgau, Baden. About the year 640 he came into the region of the upper Rhine, and settled at the river Neumage. Othpert, a German noble, gave to Trudpert the land, besides six servants, who were to assist him in the clearing and making arable the wooded country. Soon a chapel was built in honor of St. Peter. Three years Trudpert led an ascetic life, when two of the servants killed him while resting from his manual labor. Othpert had Trudpert buried in the chapel. During the 8th century the place lay waste, but in 816 Rambert, one of Othpert's descendants, built a splendid basilica in honor of Peter and Paul, and Trudpert's remains were placed there.
