Book of Saints – Ludmilla


(Saint) Martyr (September 16) (10th century) A Sclavonian Princess, Duchess of Bohemia. She was converted to Christianity by Saint Methodius and was a matron of most saintly life. She was universally beloved on account of her charity and goodness to all with whom she had to deal. She deserved well of the Bohemian nation on account of the care with which she watched over the education of their future Prince, Saint Wenceslas. Saint Ludmilla eventually fell a victim to the jealousy of her daughter-in-law, by whose orders she was strangled by hired assassins, about A.D. 925.
