Ah, apparently this is the unfortunate Maria on which the folk tale of Genevieve of Brabant is based. A character later used by Proust as a legendary anscestor of the Guermantes family.

What a delightful spouse poor Maria had murdering his wife and members of the household .I must look up Genevieve of Brabant as I'd never hear of her before and especially if she's based on the unfortunate Maria.

Or even better: you can visit the opera 'Genevieve de Brabant' of Carl Offenbach. Erik Satie put her story on music too.

Anyway, you can find the story here:


Genevieve of Brabant - Encyclopedia

And the relevant part:

Quote:
Her story is said to rest on the history of Marie of Brabant, wife of Louis II., duke of Bavaria, and count-palatine of the Rhine, who was tried by her husband and beheaded on the 18th of January 1256, for supposed infidelity, a crime for which Louis afterwards had to do penance. The change in name may have been due to the cult of St Genevieve, patroness of Paris.

It is a small comfort though that Louis had to do penence, even if only having to found a new monastery sounds like a slap on the wrist to modern ears.
