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.

The school I went to was named after saint Margaret of Scotland, Queen Margeret College in Wellington NZ. It was founded by the same people who run Scots College (a boys school - QMC is for girls) and St Joseph's Maori Girls.

Due to the school being run by the Presbyterian church it was called Queen Margaret College not St Margaret, due to Saints being a bit too high church for their tastes; and the fact that there is also Saint Margarets school in Christchurch run by the Anglicans (sounds silly but those kinds of things were VERY important to colonial era New Zealanders...)

Apparently Saint Margaret is a popular patron for schools.

I do recall reading that st Margaret's relics (along with her husband Malcolm Canmore) were in the possession of Mary Queen of Scots at one time, before she gave them to Philip II of Spain for safe keeping to stop Knox and his followers from getting their hands on them.

Her main shrine was at Dunfermline Abbey but it was sacked and desecrated in 1560,there were other relics in Spain and France but were all lost during the French Revolution and its aftermath.
