Saint Chrodoara was a Merovingian noblewoman and traditionally the foundress of the Abbey of Amay.

She was probably married to Bodegisel and was widowed around 589. After the death of her husband she moved to Amay and devoted her wealth and her time to the church and works of charity.

She was buried in the Church of Saint George in Amay. The church is now called "Saint George and Saint Ode", where Ode or Oda, the name dating from the eleventh century, is identified as Chrodoara.

In 1977 Chrodoara's sarcophagus was discovered in the choir of the Church of Saint George and Saint Ode. On the cover she is depicted as an abbess holding a staff. However, although she was a patron and benefactor of the abbey she apparently was not an abbess.
