The following Text is from Wikipedia.

Saint Remigius, Remy or Remi, (French: Saint Rémi or Saint Rémy; Italian: Remigio; Spanish: Remigio; Occitan: Romieg; Polish: Remigiusz; Breton: Remig and Lithuanian: Remigijus), was Bishop of Reims and Apostle of The Franks, (circa 437 A.D. – 13 January 533 A.D.).

On 24 December 496 A.D., he Baptised Clovis I, King of The Franks. This Baptism, leading to the conversion of the entire Frankish people to Nicene Christianity, was a momentous success for The Catholic Church and a seminal event in European history.
