Italiano: Santa Godelina.
English: Saint Godelina (also Godelieve, Godeliève, Godeleva) (c. 1049 – July 6, 1070) was a Flemish saint. Tradition states that she was pious as a young girl, and became much sought after by suitors as a beautiful young woman. Godelina, however, wanted to became a nun. A nobleman named Bertolf (Berthold) of Gistel, however, determined to marry her, successfully invoked the help of Godelina's father's suzerain, Eustace II, Count of Boulogne. Godelina's mother-in-law soon forced the young bride to live in a narrow cell, with little food to support her. Godelina shared this food with the poor.
