Daughter of King Béla IV of Hungary and Maria Laskarina; sister of Saint Margaret of Hungary and Blessed Jolenta of Poland; niece of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary; great-niece of Saint Hedwig of Andechs. Reluctant member of Polish royalty when she married Prince Boleslaus V, but it was a political marriage, and the pious couple lived as brother and sister; when Boleslaus became Prince of Cracow, became a princess of Poland. Noted for her charity to the poor and personal care for lepers. Founded a Poor Clare convent in Stary Sacz, Poland. Widowed in 1279, she gave away her wealth and retired to the convent as a prayerful Franciscan tertiary, turning her back completely on governance and worldly life.
Died – 24 July 1292 in the convent at Stary Sacz, Malopolskie, Poland of natural causes.
