There not much detailed information about him, especially due to the age of the records and the fact that he not widely recognized outside certain locales. He lived in the 8th century and was a courtier at the court of Pepin, but decided to abandon his courtly life to live as a hermit.
The popular legend about St. Gangulphus involves his wife’s infidelity. According to the story, Gangulphus’ wife was unfaithful to him. Despite this, Gangulphus showed great patience and forgiveness, demonstrating Christian virtues of love and forgiveness. This story is likely the reason why he considered the patron saint for marital difficulties and adultery, as he represents patience and forgiveness in the face of these trials.
