MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT

The story of St. Ludmila



St. Ludmila is the first known Czech woman,
the first documented wife of the monarch of Bohemia
and perhaps also the first Czech duchess. She is known
as the educator of St. Wenceslas and it was
her daughter-in-law Drahomíra who hired her assassins. Because she was strangled by her own scarf or veil, the strip of cloth became her attribute and symbol to commemorate her martyrdom.
