Agnes Of Bohemia

Saint Agnes of Bohemia, O.S.C., (Czech: Svatá Anežka Česká), or Agnes of Prague (20 June 1211 - 2 March 1282), was a medieval Bohemian princess who opted for a life of charity and piety over a life of luxury and comfort. Although she was venerated soon after her death, Agnes was not beatified or canonized for over 700 years.
