NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Old High German name “Irmingard”, composed of two elements: “*ermunaz” (strong, whole, tall, exalted, whole, great, powerful) plus “*gardaz” (court, yard, enclosure, garden, protection, refuge). Ermengard (also Ermengarda, Ermengarde, or Irmingard) was the only surviving daughter of Louis II, Holy Roman Emperor. In 876, she married Boso, from the Bosonid, Count of Vienne, who declared himself King of Provence in 879. Saint Irmgardis, Saint Irmgard of Süchteln († ~1065 or 1082/1089) was a medieval saint and sovereign Countess Irmgardis of Aspel (Germany) in 1013-1085. Her relics are preserved in a sarcophagus in the altar of Cologne Cathedral.
