Description

Saint Adalbald of Ostrevant healing oil (Parents of Large family’s)

Saint Adalbald founded a convent at Homage near Douai. Her relationship with Merovingian King Dagobert has proposed to have been through his mother Gerberga and her putative sister Gertrude. However, Karine Ugé argues that the connection between Adalbald and Erchinoald is fiction.

One of the leading nobles and claimed lordship of Douai. A disciple of Amand of Maastricht. In 630, Adalbald founded Marchiennes Abbey. During a military expedition in Gascony, he met and married Rictrude of Marchiennes despite the opposition of both families. Although her parents approved, others opposed marriage to Frank.

The couple opened their castle to the poor and disadvantaged. The hermit-monk Richarius a family friend. Adalbald’s wife made Marchiennes Abbey a double monastery in 643.

Assassinated in unclear circumstances around 652, near Périgueux during a subsequent expedition to Aquitaine, probably by his wife’s relatives still bitter about the marriage to an enemy of her people. Returned to Flanders and buried at Saint-Amand Abbey were venerated as a martyr, as his death had taken place in a region that had not yet adopted Christianity. His name, however, is not currently in the liturgical calendars of Cambrai and Lille.
