A doe took a place in Clovis life in 507. It was during his famous victory of Vouille against Wisigoths.

She showed him a way to go through the river for him and his army, and permit him to win the battle.

During the night, the kind prayed the Lord to show him how to pass the river; following morning, on God order, an extraordinary huge doe entered in the river before all eyes and crossing it, showed to all how to pass the river."
