from Great Britain (+383)

October 21

Saint Ursula (Latin for “little female bear”) is a Romano-British Christian saint. Her feast day  is October 21.

She was a princess who, at the request of her father King Dionotus of Dumnonia in south-west Britain, set sail to join her future husband, the pagan governor Conan Meriadoc of Armorica, along with 10 virginal handmaidens.

After a miraculous storm brought them over the sea in a single day to a Gaulish port, Ursula declared that before her marriage she would undertake a pan-European pilgrimage. She headed for Rome with her followers and persuaded the Pope Cyriacus, and Sulpicius Bishop of Ravenna, to join them.

After setting out for Cologne, which was being besieged by the pagans, all the virgins were beheaded in a massacre. The pagan leader shot (with a bow and arrow) Ursula dead, in about 383.
