British - A 5th C. Princess. Daughter of Dionotus. She led either 11, 1100 or 11000 virgins on a pilgrimage to Rome. All were murdered by the Huns at Cologne on their return journey because Ursula refused to marry their pagan leader. An alternative version says that Conan in Armorica sent to Dionotus asking for wives for his soldier settlers. Dionotus sent 1100 noble ladies and 60,000 commoners, all of whom perished when storms scattered their ships. Also commonly identified as Ursula.
