Florence was also the name of the mother of Saint Tanguy de Locmazhé and Aude de Trémazan, two famous saints from Brittany. Little is known about her apart from the fact that she died around 520. Her husband, Golon, then married a cruel woman who took great pleasure in bullying Tanguy and Aude. After 8 years of suffering Tanguy left Brittany to become a knight leaving Aude alone with her evil step-mother. When he eventually came back the evil step mother had him believe that Aude (who was a very pious young woman) was dishonoring the family. He killed his sister out of rage and legend has it that Aude came back in the family castle carrying her head between her hands while claiming her innocence. When Tanguy learnt the truth he was so horrified that he decided to become a monk for repentence and created several abbeys. (For those who wonder the evil step mother was struck by lightning when Aude came back to the castle and put her head back on her neck to claim her innocence, ask for the last rites and confront her step mother about her evil actions.)
