Hermitess of Tours who inspired the foundation of St. Pierre-le-Puellier convent. She was born in Chartres, France, and married. When her daughters died, Monegundis received her husband's permission for her to become a recluse. She started a hermitage at Chartres but then moved to a site near the tomb of St. Martin at Tours. Disciples who joined her forced her to establish a rule that led to the convent founding. Many miracles took place at her tomb.
