Clotilda, St. (475-545), daughter of Chilperic of Burgundy, and wife of Clovis, King of the Franks, whom she converted. Her vengeance upon her uncle for the death of her father, mother, and brothers, brought about the union of Burgundy with France. After her husband's death she retired to Tours, where a church and statue perpetuate her memory. Her bones were burnt at the Revolution to prevent their desecration.
