Himiltrude (3 syl.)

.

Wife of Charlemagne, who surpassed all other women in nobleness of mien.

“Her neck was tinged with a delicate rose, like that of a Roman matron in former ages. Her locks were bound about her temples with gold and purple bands. Her dress was looped up with ruby clasps. Her coronet and her purple robes gave her an air of surpassing majesty.”—Croquemitaine, iii.
