About St. Adelaide of Burgundy

St. Adelaide was a Holy Roman Emperor’s Empress. She was born in the year 931 in Upper Burgundy, in what is now Switzerland, to King Rudolf II of Burgundy. Adelaide’s first marriage was a planned political alliance with the son of her father’s adversary, Lothair II of Italy. Adelaide and her first husband had only one child, Emma, who was born in 948 when Adelaide was seventeen years old.

In a crafty political maneuver, Adelaide’s husband’s adversary, Berengar II, poisoned her spouse and attempted to force Adelaide to marry his son, Adalbert. Adelaide flatly refused, fleeing Italy. Berengar’s troops followed her and imprisoned her for four months in a stronghold on Lake Como.

Adelaide died on December 16, 999, just a few days before the millennium. Handel and Rossini dramatized and remembered her exciting life in operas. Adelaide is the patron saint of brides and empresses, as one might expect. She is also the patron saint of women and men who have faced difficulties in their relationships or marriages, a gentle acknowledgment of the hardships and sufferings a mother must have faced in raising a family amid medieval Europe’s tough political environment.

She is the patron saint of women who have been abused, second marriages, stepparents, and widows. Some of her relics are kept in the reliquary chapel of Notre Dame’s Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
