Oda of Brabant
|Oda of Brabant|
|Died||1158 (aged 23–24)
|Venerated in||Roman Catholic Church|
Oda was born to a noble family from the Brabant region of Belgium. In order to avoid an arranged marriage to a young nobleman, she disfigured her face. Her family then allowed her to follow the religious vocation she desired. She became a Premonstratensian nun at Rivroelles, eventually becoming prioress there.
