Remiremont Abbey was a Benedictine abbey. It was founded about 620 by Romaric, a lord at the court of Chlothar II. At a later period the Benedictine nuns were replaced by a chapter of 98 canonesses who had to prove 200 years of nobility. In the 17th century the ladies of Remiremont fell away so much from the original monastic rule as to take the title of countesses, renounce their vows and marry.
