Also known as Amalberga, Amalia or Amelia, Saint Amalburga was part of a family of Saints - married to Count Witger, she taught her children; St. Gudula, St. Emebert, and St. Reineldis. When their children were grown, both the Count and Amalburga retired to Benedictine monasteries. Amalburga recieved the veil from Saint Willibrord.
Legend has it that Amalburga embraced a life of asceticism and crossed a lake on a giant fish - a sturgeon. She is the patron saint against fever, bruises and arm pain - also the patron of Ghent where her relics have been since 1073.
