Saint Edburga of Minster-in-Thanet (also known as Eadburh and Bugga) was a royal princess, the only daughter of King Centwine and Queen Engyth of Wessex in the 8th century of the Kent royal family and a saint.
During her time as an abbess she was able to secure royal charters for the abbey as well as having a new church (saints Peter and Paul) built there, to provide a shrine for the relics of St Mildrith.
