Blessed Clare of Pisa – Widowed a short time after her marriage, and not wishing her father to negotiate her into a second arranged marriage, she fled the family home and joined the Poor Clares.  Later, she joined a Dominican convent and Clare, who favored a stricter and more vigorous interpretation of Dominican life arranged for a new convent to be built for her.
