Saint Kinga was born as the daughter of a Hungarian king (King Bela IV) and married a Polish prince (Boleslaw V). She dedicated her life to charity, visiting the poor and helping the lepers. When her husband died, she sold all her belongings and gave her money to the poor. Four hundred years later Kinga was beautified and was made chief patroness of Poland and Lithuania. Kinga was also sister to Saint Margaret, the princess after whom Budapest’s beautiful island was named.
