In what sense do you mean "Saintly life"?
It's interesting to know more about this couple.

The Early Christian Symbol "Chi Rho" became even more popular because of Constantine, for Our Lord Jesus Christ promised him that this symbol will lead him to victory over Constantine's enemies:

St. Ingonde, Princess of the Thuringians
St. Clothilde, Princess of Burgundy
Has anyone mentioned St Vladimir? I may have missed it.
Saint Mathilda of the Anglo-Saxons, Queen Mother of Thierry III, King of Burgundy

Lots of ancient saints among aristocrats as well. Saint Mathilda of Ringleheim was mother of the Queen of France (Gerberga).

Although this is not Christian, Buddha was born into the Royal World. Buddha, or popularly known as Gautama Buddha, was a Prince of a Kingdom in Nepal called Kapilavastu. Buddha was the son of the King of Kapilavastu, Suddhodana, and his wife, Queen Maha Maya (or Mayadevi).

Here is a painting of Queen Maha Maya miraculously giving birth to Gautama Buddha:

Saint Albert of Louvain (1166 - 1192), is a Belgian Royal Saint. He was the Prince-Bishop of Liege from September 22, 1191 till January 1192. He was canonized in 1613. Saint Albert was the son of Godfrey III, Count of Leuven, and brother of Henry I, Duke of Lorraine and Brabant. His relics are transferred to the Carmelite Monastery of Brussels, Belgium in 1612, some are re-located to the Cathedral of Liege in Belgium, in 1822:

I was surprised to know that the Servant of God, Empress Zita, was born in Lucca, Italy. Lucca is the place where the famous early 20th Century Mystic, Saint Gemma Galgani, was born.

That they were devoutly Catholic,the couple had no children as Queen Fabiola had several miscarriages.


In 1990 the king refused refused to give Royal assent to the liberalising of Belgiums Abortion laws.

Agnes of Bohemia (1211-1282): Princess and Saint

Exhibition on St Agnes of Bohemia opens in Prague convent | Prague Monitor
A unique exhibition on St Agnes of Bohemia (1211-1282) will open in Prague's Anezsky convent, which was founded by St Agnes and whose Gothic architecture will complement the medieval artifacts on display, the organisers told journalists on the eve of its opening Thursday. The exhibition, which runs through the end of March, offers about 300 works of arts documenting the life and later cult of Agnes, a princess of the House of Premyslids who opted for a life of charity and piety in the 13th century.

The life and legacy of Saint Agnes of Bohemia - Radio Prague
Born in the year 1211, Princess Agnes (or Anežka in Czech) was predestined by birth to live a life of luxury at one of Europe’s royal courts. Yet, inspired by other religious figures of her time, she dedicated her life to service and sacrifice.
[...]
So this woman who could have influenced not only the fate of the Czech lands but the whole of Central Europe devoted her attention to charity and care for the sick and poor, working in two hospitals in Prague.

They are not royals, just wizards. Not relevant to these forums.

They were NOT wizards but priests - the Magi - were the priestly group in ancient Persia. They are also referred to as the Three Kings so they do belong in a royal forum.

You are free to discuss any legendary priests, or kings, or gods you like.
The real news is that Hildegard of Bingen, a woman of noble (not royal) birth will be proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 2012.
Brilliant news!

Wenceslas: A Goodhearted King And His Popular Carol : NPR
Wenceslas was a real person: the Duke of Bohemia, a 10th-century Christian prince in a land where many practiced a more ancient religion. In one version of his legend, Wenceslas was murdered in a plot by his brother, who was under the sway of their so-called pagan mother.
Following his death, Wenceslas became a saint and martyr revered especially for his kindness to the poor. Meanwhile, the catchy tune to "Good King Wenceslas" was around when people celebrated spring, but the Wenceslas legend hadn't yet met up with the melody. For centuries, it had been sung in Latin as "Tempus adest floridum" — a springtime song celebrating nature's powers of rebirth. It had verses in various languages, some of them adventurous in their descriptions of these celebrations.

There are quite a lot of saints if we turn back to Medieval times or the periods of first Christian kingdoms. St Margaret of Scotland was once a queen of scotland, St. Adelaide was an empress, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, a queen, St. Elizabeth of Portugal. St Ethelreda, Saint Melangel, Saint Vladimir of Russia,it was needed to be someone of high standing to get noticed in the medieval period.
It's interesting that Anne Boleyn was considered by some as a martyr, especially during the reign of her daughter, Elizabeth I. And Elizabeth I was kind of considered a heroine because she brought England into the Golden Age and when she came onto the throne, there was a lot of problems in England following the reigns of her brother and sister before her. England was in a pretty dark period after her sister Mary I.
