A new monastery was named the Convent of the Humility of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The nuns were called the Humble Order of Servants of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. Isabelle did not join the community.

Queen Eleanor of Provence (Queen Consort of England) changed her title when she entered the convent. She styled herself 'a humble nun of the order of Fontevrault vof the convent of Amesbury'. She did not choose to retire altogether humbly. She never became a fully professed nun.

Thank you for introducing us to Hilda.  A very interesting woman.  I found some more about her: https://www.lettersfromth...ing-of-english-literature.

I must follow up on more of the women you have mentioned in this thread.   Beer

Some of Archduke Rudolf (b. 1950) of Austria's children have been ordained into religious orders. I know Johannes (b. 1981) has been ordained as a priest, and Thomas (b. 1983) and Joseph (b. 1991) and their sister Marie-des-Neiges (b. 1986) have taken religious vows.

There are eight siblings in all, and only two, the oldest, Carl Christian, and the sixth, Franz, are married. So two children married, four in religious orders, and two, Priscilla and Michael, who are unmarried.

Here are a couple articles about Johannes: https://www.tagesanzeiger...tzt-moench/story/29486147
https://www.pointdevue.fr...annes-dautriche_6227.html

As I read through this thread, there is something profoundly moving and meaningful, when a grown man decides to turn his back on the secular world & devote themselves to the good of their fellow men, i.e. Johannes, but when one reads of a four year old daughter of a king taking vows back in the 13th century (!!).  It must never be that way again.

There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight."
