Pilgrims came from all over Europe, to venerate Our Lady of Louvain [Seat of Wisdom]. It is reported that Catholic monarchists such as Isabella of Portugal, wife of the Duke of Burgundy, Philip the Good, and Charlemagne, travelled to the shrine in Louvain, to honor Our Lady and petition Her wise counsel.
