St Ursula

Secular holiday : Patron saint of teachers and youths. Her almost completely fictitious legend is as follows. Ursula was the daughter of a Christian British king. She had taken a vow of chasity, and yet against her will she was betrothed to a pagan prince. To avoid war she agreed on condition of his conversion and a delay of three years. She set sail accompanied by 11,000 virgins (up from 11 in earlier versions of the story), and arrived in Cologne, when an angel advised her to take a pilgrimage to Rome. When they returned from the pilgrimage, Cologne was being sacked by the Huns, who slaughtered the virgins after Ursula refused the advances of a Hun prince. (shagtown.com)
