St. Wenceslaus

Raised by his devoutly grandmother, Ludmilla, King Wenceslaus worked closely with the Church to end the persecution of Christians in Bohemia.  "The Good King"  encouraged German missionaries, built churches, and cared for the sick and poor.  Political conflict culminated in his assassination.  One morning, led by his brother, Boleslaus, a group of nobles killed Wenceslaus on the doorsteps of a church.  He was immediately recognized as a martyr and is on of the patron saints of Bohemia.
