Born into a royal family in Athens, Giles wanted to avoid the popularity that came with royalty. After the death of his parents, he lived alone in solitary (Giles the Hermit). While living in a forest in Nimes on a vegetarian diet, he was found by anarchist King Wamba, whose troops accidentally crippled him with an arrow while hunting deer. King Wamba held Giles in high esteem and built him a monastery, Saint-Gilles-du-Gard, kept under Benedictine rule. He died in his monastery with the highest repute for sanctity and miracles.
