Saint Ursula

As I was browsing through several sites and schools, I found one Academy that caught my eye, mainly because of the name of the Saint. It was Saint Ursula, and in a curious jump, I opened a new tab and ran to the Catholic Encyclopedia here: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15225d.htm

I found it interesting that there are two different stories for Ursula, each ending with her death, but under different circumstances in each case.

The first, ends with her burial after she and the many virgins are killed because of their refusal to submit to the Huns. Another tells of her being killed near Cologne, France, upon which there is a site nearby with a Basilica dedicated to the Ursula and the 10,000 virgins, built by Clematius, a Senator with land to spare.
