This woman was the patron saint of something she herself died of. That is, this woman had an unsightly tumor on her neck. Of course, this led her to her looking after those with neck troubles. She was also a twice married princess who refused to consummate the unions. Who was she?

Æthelthryth is the proper name for the popular Anglo-Saxon saint almost universally known as Etheldreda or by the pet form of Audrey (or variations). She was an East Anglian princess, a Fenland queen and Abbess of Ely in the English county of Cambridgeshire. Saint Audrey is the patron saint of throat ailments.
As a follow up to my quiz on folks who died before 21 I thought it would be interesting to investigate a bit to find out who had left us before the age of 30...still very young! I hope this quiz is instructive...enjoy.
