Born in 554, Wendelin is the son of the King of Scotland. He refused his life as a prince, due to his educator who was a Bishop, and devoted his life to God. He lived as a hermit in Germany, and then began to tend sheep for a wealthy man who built a chapel in his honor. He established the Tholey Abbey of which he became abbot.
