               Amelia was born in 741 into a devout Christian family. Amelia made the decision to     
                 join the convent. She became a nun and devoted her life to God.     
                   Amelia helped to build and run a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary.   
                        She died in 772.

                  St. Amelia was once the romantic interest of Charles, the son of King Pepin of the Franks.   
                    She was not interested in him. Eventually he became the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne.

                        An oil painting of Saint Amelia by history painter Paul Delaroche was commissioned in 1831   
                        by Queen Marie Amelie of France, the wife of King Louis Philippe. It was created as a design       
                        for a stained glass window in the Queen's private chapel at the Chateau d'Eu.
