ST. MADELBERTE, V.
ABBESS of Maubeuge, niece to St. Aldegundis
(honored on the 30th of January), had the happiness to be educated in
her monastery with her sister Aldetrudis, who, upon the death of her
aunt, was chosen second abbess of Maubeuge, and succeeded by her
sister Madelberte. This last died about the year 705. She is honored
on the 7th of September in the Belgic and other Martyrologies. Her
relics were translated from Maubeuge to Liege by St. Hubert about the
year 722. See Perier the Bollandist, p. 109.
