Clotilde (c. 474 - 545), princess of Burgundy and fervent Catholic,
was brought up in her mother’s Christian faith. She married Clovis
in 493 and their first two children were baptised at Clotilde’s
particular request. It was at the battle of Tolbiac in 496 that Clovis
himself promised to convert, on condition that he was victorious.
He was subsequently baptised on 25 December 498 in Reims.
Highly instrumental in her husband’s conversion to Christianity,
Clotilde died around 545 and was canonised around 550.
