Extract from Saint Ludmila: “(Death: September 15, 921 at Saint George’s Church, Prague). Daughter of a Slavic prince. Duchess of Bohemia, married to Boriwoi, first Christian Duke of Bohemia; the two were baptized by Saint Methodius in 871. They built the first Christian church in Bohemia, and tried to force Christianity on their subjects; they failed. Widow. Grandmother and tutor of Saint Wenceslas. Gave a proper burial to Saint Ivan. Her daughter-in-law, Drahomira, jealous of the influence which Ludmilla wielded over her grandson, Wenceslaus, had her murdered.”
