St. Regina

St. Regina lived in the third century. The daughter of a pagan, she was kicked out of her home for converting to Christianity. The poor shepherdess would not marry the Roman proconsul Olybrius, so she was imprisoned and tortured. She was martyred circa 286 in Autun, which is in modern-day France. St. Regina is patron saint of shepherdesses and poverty.
