"Gothic Style Tapestry Queen Radegonde"
Radegonde is taken to the kingdom of Soissons, in Saint-Quentin. For ten years, Radegonde receives, thanks to Ingonde's wife Clotaire, a religious and intellectual education. She learns Latin and deepens her faith by reading religious texts. Ingonde dies in 538. Radegonde is presented to the king by a courtier and Clotaire then realizes that she can become his fourth wife. Radegonde seems to have had no desire to become queen of the Franks, because she tried to flee, but was caught in the vicinity of Péronne. The marriage ceremony, in the presence of Bishop Medard, takes place in Soissons around 539 and becomes Queen by marrying Clotaire, son of Clovis. Queen Radegund detached herself more and more from worldly concerns to lead a pious and charitable life among the poor. She obtained from Clotaire forgiveness and the liberation of several condemned to death. She went to Poitiers where she founded the monastery Notre-Dame. On October 25, 552 in the presence of a large crowd, she entered the monastery of Our Lady accompanied by many girls. Many miracles were attributed to her, including miraculous healings, which attracted many pilgrims. She was declared holy soon after her death. He is one of the few saints not to have been canonised by the Holy See, but by popular belief.
