Religious Figure
    British princess
    Before her planned marriage, went on a European pilgrimage with 11,000 virginal handmaidens
    Entire group was massacred by Huns upon reaching Cologne, Germany
    Feast day is October 21
    She probably never existed.
    The year of her death has been given anywhere from 238 to 640.
    Most people are smart enough to leave cities being besieged by Huns off their travel itinerary.
    Some scholars have suggested that the story was based on a tale of eleven virgin martyrs (or maybe an eleven-year-old martyr) in which 'undecimilia' (Latin for 11) was misread as 'undicimila' (11,000).
    Like several other saints whose existence is doubtful, she was dropped from the Catholic calendar of saints (1969).
