St. Elizabeth of Hungary married Louis of Thuringia in 1221.
She built the Franciscan hospital at Marburg.
She was canonized by Pope Gregory IX.

it was also St Elizabeth of Hungary that was allegedly involved in the propagation of "a true letter of Christ our Savior"

Depending on which version of St. Elizabeth's life you read, either her husband was a good guy and his uncle was a cad or her husband was the cad. In both accounts, she did have children by her husband, the king, but he died young . :fyi:

Elizabeth was married to Louis IV, Landgrave of Thuringia. The Landgrave was not a king.

Her coffin at the church in Marburg is prominently displayed inside. Quite beautiful.

Unfortunately, the very historically-significant (Catholic) church is protestant.

She was a princess by birth and a countess by marriage. She gave away food and money to the poor.

Elizabeth's confessor, Konrad von Marburg ordered Elizabeth to send away her three children after she became a widow. Did she ever see her children again?

Her feast day is fast approaching- November 17.

She is also the patron saint of the Secular Franciscan Order.
