Biography of St. Ingeborg:
Ingeborg was a Danish princess and the second wife of King Philip of France. However, the marriage failed because her husband has an affair with Agnes of Meran. Ingorborg was even kept in custody because she refused to divorce and insisted on her rights as Queen of France. She was only released because of the interdicts of Pope Innocent III and died in Corbeil. She was buried in Saint-Jean-sur-l'Isle at Corbeil.
