The Holy Martyr Ludmilla.

Commemorated September 16 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

The grandmother of the Czech King Vatslav (Wenceslas) and wife of the Czech Prince Borivoy, she was very zealous for the Christian faith and was greatly instrumental in freeing the Church from paganism.

Her daughter-in-law hated her, and sent men to kill the aged Ludmilla in Techino in 927.

Vatslav buried her in the Church of St George in Prague, and many miracles were wrought over her relics.

Holy Vatslav, a great zealot for the Orthodox faith, was murdered by his brother Boleslav.
