About Saint Alburga

Alburga (died 810) was a member of the royal house of Wessex, abbess of Wilton and a saint.

Alburga was the half-sister of Egbert, King of Wessex, and wife of Ealdorman Wulfstan of Wiltshire (or Weohstan). On her husband's death in 802, she turned the college of secular priests which he had established in an old church in Wilton, into a Benedictine convent with twelve nuns, of which she became the abbess and is held to be the founder. She died there on Christmas Day 810, and her feast is celebrated accordingly on 25 December.
