An example can be found in Catherine of Genoa ( 1447–1510 ), a married contemplative who devoted her life to care of the sick. Catherine wrote nothing, but her teachings were put together and eventually published ( 1551 ) by her followers.

In the strict sense (i.e., without counting Soule or Basse-Navarre), it extends essentially over the Gaves of Aspe and Osseau, which became the Gave d'Oloron at Sauveterre, and the Gave de Pau (Pau, Lescar, Orthez). In 1512 the sovereigns of Béarn, Catherine de Foix and Jean d'Albret , lost the territory of Haute Navarre (Upper Navarre), which was soon after incorporated into the kingdom of Castile.
