St. Kinga

He (Bolesław the Shy) married Kinga of chaste and good habits, a beautiful virgin, already then (1239) known for her pious life, that demonstrated her merits already among the child's toys. As soon as she was born in the year 1204 she began her life not like other children with groaning and whining, but with the Angel's Welcome, since she said loudly and with clear voice in Hungarian "welcome the Queen of Heaven". Apart from that on Wednesdays and Fridays she sucked the maternal breast only once a day, following the pattern of the St. Nicolas the bishop.(...)

The poor guy Boleslaw the Shy married this lady and she convinced him not to consummate their marriage (remember, sex is bad!). She was quite smart, though. I will tell you another story about her, some other time.
