Saint Ursula Biography

Saint Ursula was an Incredible princess, the girl of a Christian British ruler and Saint Daria. She voyaged Europe in the organization of either 11 or 11,000 individual ladies; the 11,000 number most likely came about because of a misreading of the expression “11M” which demonstrated 11 Martyrs.

However, which a copyist took for a Roman numeral. Ursula and her organization were tormented to death to get them to repudiate their confidence, and old compositions of them show a significant number of the ladies being executed in different difficult ways. The namesake for the Ursuline Order established for the training of youthful Catholic young ladies and ladies.
