Imagery and Representation: shown with a model of a church in her hand.
St Hedwig was born around 1174 in Germany. She was the daughter of Berthold IV and Agnes of Rochlitz. She was related to St Elizabeth of Hungary. When she turned 12, she moved to Silesia. She was to be married to the Duke Henry I, the head of the Polish Royal family.
They had seven children, but one was killed fighting against the Mongols. At the request of Hedwig, the duke Henry founded a convent at Trebnitz, where St. Hedwig lived as a Cistercain after the death of her husband. There she died on the fifteenth of October 1243.
