Isabelle was born to Louis VIII of France in 1225. She was the sister of King Louis IX of France. She was proposed to by many noble men, but she always refused because she had promised herself to God. She ministered among the poor and sick. In 1255, she founded the Poor Clare Monastery of Longchamp in which she lived in austerity but never became nun or abbess. She died in 1270 and was buried in the monastery church. Apparently, many miracles occurred at her grave.
