It says here that «Jongjuic» means «Jupiter» and that «her rich, powerful, and pagan uncle offered Madrona a home and adopted her. He took her with him when he went to Italy and settled Rome, which he thought would protect her from the corruption of faith in the new God. But in the heart of Catholicism, Madrona discovered the light of faith and was baptized. In order to live more perfectly as a Christian, Madrona dedicated her virginity to her Savior, the supreme fruit of Christian love. Her zeal was demonstrated by her perseverance. At the age of 15, she was martyred when repeated scourging and hunger caused her death in prison.» Quite how this led her to become a rain goddess is unclear.
