Eleanora Girlani was born in Trino in 1460, then in the Duchy of Savoy. Throughout her childhood, she had planned to become a Benedictine nun. However, on her way to the abbey, her horse refused to take her there. Interpreting this a sign, she instead became a Carmelite nun in Parma, and was given the religious name of Archangela. She was professed in 1478.
