What is the saint of the Notre Dame cathedral?

While the question does not specify which "Notre Dame" cathedral is meant (because there are many cathedrals with this name), the name "Notre Dame" indicates that it is a church dedicated to "Our Lady" (which is what the French phrase means.) "Our Lady" always means "the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ." Thus, the patronal saint of a cathedral named "Notre Dame" would be St. Mary, the mother of Christ.
