Early Life of Hildegard von Bingen

She was born on September 16, 1098 in Germany. She was born into a very noble family as the tenth child. She had "visions" at a very young age so her parents offered her to the church.


Some of her most famous music was the music she did for Ordo Virtutum. She is still really famous for being one of the earliest female composers.
She died September 17, 1179, at the age of eighty-one. She died of natural causes (old age).
