St.Joan of France also known as St.Joan of Valois founded the Order of the Annunciation.The sisters in France are mainly cloistered but in Beligum there is an active branch that does teaching and other work.
Someone mentioned St.Elizabeth of Hungary.She was the niece of St.Hedwig of Silesea.The town of St.Hedwig,Texas east of San Antonio was founded by polish settlers and named for her. St.Hedwig's great niece was St. Elizabeth of Portugal.

I always felt a special connection to Elizabeth of Hungary. In catholic school we had to do a report on a saint when I was in grade 6 (my family didn't go to church when Iwas a kid though I was baptized, ended up in catholic school in grade 5 when we moved and no suitable public school was close). I found her fascinating.

Saint Elizabeth of Portugal was her great-niece and was named for her. Elizabeth of Hungary's half sister Yolanda was Elizabeth of Portugal's paternal grandmother. She was known as the peacemaker. During her husband Dennis' life she helped negotiate peace between him and Sancho of Castile, and later between Sancho's son Fernando and her brother James II of Aragon. After her husband's death she retreated to a convent but was called out once again to stop her son Alfonso IV from going to war with his son in law, Fernando's son Alfonso XI of Castile. Her son had married her granddaughter Maria to Alfonso of Castile but he was cold and abusive, and her son intended war. Elizabeth negotiated peace but she was left weak and died soon after.

Its a wonder how authentic they are? I would have thought that anything associated with Joan of Arc would be in the hands of the RC church or a museum?

In terms of more modern folks, there's been rumblings of beatification through the Roman Catholic Church for the late King Baudouin/Koning Boudewijn. It was fairly certain that nothing would take place during Fabiola's lifetime, but we shall see. It's a long road and an unlikely one for modern royals.

As I'm a super Baudouin fan, I would, of course, be thrilled.

Saint Casimir (1458-1484) was a Prince of the Kingdom of Poland. His father was King Casimir IV.
Prince Casimir composed the hymn Daily, Daily Sing to Mary.
