St. Hedwig (1174-1243).  Born in Bavaria, she married the Duke of Silesia by whom she had seven children (reason enough in itself for sainthood!).  Her life was characterised by her devotion and kindness to the sick and the poor, for whom she built hostels (no N.H.S.).  On the death of her husband, she retired to a monastery at Trebnitz, where she ended her life.
