St Gisela was born to Henry II, Duke of Bavaria and was most likely raised by a bishop. She married King Stephen I of Hungary and had a son with him in 995. Gisela had great influence on the conversion of the Hungarians. After the death of her husband though, she had to leave Hungary and moved to Niedernburg in Germany where she joined a nunnery and became abbess. She died in 1065 and was buried in Niedernburg. Her grave has been a famous pilgrimage site and a chapel dedicated to Gisela was build Veszprem, where she had lived in her youth.
