Rosalina was born in 1267 in a castle at Villaneuve. As a child she was noted for her charity to the poor, often slipping away to give food to beggars outside the family castle.
She became a Carthusian nun, entering the monastery of Bertrand, in the diocese of Gap. Her mother joined the order with her, and her brother built a church for their house. Rosalina had frequent visions, the gift of reading hearts, and other mystical phenomena. Her brother Helian fought was captured in the Crusades. Legend says he was freed from his chains and led safely home across the seas by a vision of Rosalina who appeared to him in a cloud of roses.
