St. Jane of Valois

Saint Jane of Valois was born a deformed and sickly princess of France in 1464. She developed a strong devotion to Mary early in life and was married at the age of 9 for political ends. Later their marriage was annulled, also for political reasons, which allowed Saint Jane of Valois to found the Order of Annonciades. The Order's chief goal was to imitate the virtues of Mary. Saint Jane of Valois's feast day is February 4th.
