Santa Elisabetta d'Ungheria (Ungheria, 1207 - Marburg, Germania, 17 novembre 1231). She was betrothed in infancy to Louis, Landgrave of Thuringia, and brought up from the age of four in his father’s court. She was forced to wander through the streets with her little children, a prey to hunger and cold. She welcomed all her sufferings, and continued to be the mother of the poor, distributing all of the heritage eventually conceded to her, and converting many by her holy life. She died in 1231, at the age of twenty-four.
