Saint Edward the Confessor Anglo-Saxon King of England  Ironically, Saint Edward and his brother were sent into exile when Saint Canute invaded England. They were to be put to death, but their captor took pity on them and Saint Edward was sent off to be educated by the King of Hungary where he developed a love of religious study. When he returned to England and took the throne, he was a kind and just king, who repealed unjust taxation, helped the poor and strangers. He married but remained chaste in keeping with his great piety. He built many churches including Westminster Abbey. He is reputed to be able to heal by touch. When he was building a Church in honor of St. John the Baptist, a pilgrim appeared to ask for alms in the saint's name. Saint Edward removed the gold ring from his finger and gave it to the stranger - who then revealed himself to be Saint John the Baptist! Read a story for children here.

Ready-made Saintly Royalty with a "fur" trimmed robe and Crown

Saint Olaf of Norway - This warrior king spent most of his youth as a Norse raider until he was baptized. When he returned home and ascended to the throne he fought the invasion of Danes and Swedes into Norway and asked for missionaries to spread Christianity throughout the nation. Since he spent most of his life as a warrior, he took that approach to Christianity and attempted to convert by the sword.  While this technique was certainly unpopular, his goal was to fight Satan and the powers of hell.  Ahead of his time, he established Olaf’s Law which included prayer to Christ for peace, required newborn babies to be allowed to live and not abandoned in fields or forests, slaves were to be ransomed each year, polygamy was forbidden, and severe penalties were exacted for rape and the kidnapping of women. Olaf himself traveled the length of Norway promoting his new Christian Law, and he insisted that it be applied equally upon both rich and poor. Unfortunately, he was viewed as harsh soon overthrown and sent into exile in Russia. While he was not popular, after his death, many miracles occurred at his tomb and he was soon revered.  Read More Crusader King

Saint Stephen the Great King of Hungary - When this Christian King mounted the throne, much of his country was pagan, and many of those pagans were fierce and violent. Placing his entire kingdom under the protection of Mary, Mother of God, his reign was blessed and many came into the faith. The Pope sent him a special blessed crown that is treasured to this day.  Saint Stephen loved the poor and would often go about in disguise, giving out gifts of money to the destitute. One day, some ruffians knocked him down and beat him, taking his money pouch. They had no idea this was their king.  He did not become angry, but prayed to the Blessed Virgin, and forgave them.  He gave support to Christian leaders, upheld the Holy See, and was a patron who built many Churches.
