St. Giles was born in the early 7th century and died c.710. His Latin name was Aegidius. Little fact is known of his origin and early life but legend has it that he was born an Athenian and became a hermit near the mouth of the Rhone, not far from Nimes. Legend also relates that whilst the King Wamba was out hunting in a forest he chased a hind who went into a thicket into which the king shot an arrow. Upon investigating the King found Giles wounded by the arrow whilst protecting the hind.
