About Saint Wenceslaus Duke of Bohemia  

Saint Wenceslaus, also spelled, Saint Wenceslas was the Duke of Bohemia.  He lived from 907 to 935.  His father was Duke Vratislav I, who was a Christian and his mother was Drahomira, the daughter of a pagan chieftain.  She was baptized a Christian when she married Saint Wenceslaus’ father.  Saint Wenceslaus was named the patron saint of Bohemia, Czech Republic, and Prague.

When Saint Wenceslaus was thirteen years old, his father died and his grandmother took care of him.  She was Saint Ludmila and she taught Saint Wenceslaus the Christian faith.  His mother, Drahomira, tried to convert Saint Wencelaus to paganism but failed.
