Xenia of St. Petersburg-St. Xenia was born about 1730. She was married at 27 to an army colonel named Andrew. He died in a drinking bout and left her a widow and childless. She gave away all her belongings and disappeared from St. Petersburg for eight years. Some think that she spent this time in a hermitage learning the spiritual life. When she finally came back to St. Petersburg she was seen wearing her husband?s army tunic and would only answer to the name of ?Andrew?, her late husband?s name.
