Also known as
Wenceslaus of Bohemia
Duke of Bohemia. Grandson and student of Saint Ludmilla. Ascended to power when his father was killed during a pagan backlash against Christianity, which he fought against with prayer and patience. Murdered by his brother Boleslaus at the door of a church; killed for political reasons, but normally listed as a martyr since the politics arose from his faith. Miracles reported at his tomb.
