St. Julia of Troyes

Julia was born in Troyes, France in the third century. She was taken captive by soldiers of Roman Emperor Aurelian and given over as a slave to Claudius. Through her teachings, Julia was able to convert Claudius to Christ. In 272, upon the orders of Emperor Aurelian, both Julia and Claudius were beheaded. Their relics were enshrined in the convent of Jouarre, near Meaux, France.

That’s it, that’s all that’s known of her. I thought about skipping over her to find a saint with more info.
