Saint Frideswide
Birth: 650
Death: Oct. 19, 730

(Dates approximate). Said to have been the daughter of King Didan, she refused the hand of King Algar of Mercia and founded a monastery in Oxford. Algar gave up his claims on here after being affected by a miraculous blindness. She became the patron siant of the town and in 1880 a shrine was erected in the Cathedral for her remains. Since then the shrine has been damaged and reconstructed more than once. Her remains are said to be still nearby, however. (bio by: David Conway)
