Foundation Information
 

Circa 800 a convent named Charoltesbach was founded in the Saalgau not far from Fulda. Much debate surrounds the name of the convent. It is often refered to as Stralsbach or Karsbach; alternately historians have connected the reference to this convent with the later convents of Frauenroden (Frauenroth) or Aschfeld. Little information is known about the convent.

 
First Members
 

The first leader of the convent was Ruothild, daughter of Countess Gisla. The sister of S. Luitberga may also have been a member of the community. The grandfather of both these nuns was Count Hessi, a member of Charlemagne's retinue.
