Blessed Jolenta (Yolanda) of Poland (d. 1298) 
Jolenta was the daughter of Bela IV, King of Hungary. Her sister, St.
Kunigunde, was married to the Duke of Poland. Jolenta was sent to Poland
where her sister was to supervise her education. Eventually married to
Boleslaus, the Duke of Greater Poland, Jolenta was able to use her material
means to assist the poor, the sick, widows and orphans. Her husband joined
her in building hospitals, convents and churches so that he was surnamed
"the Pious." Upon the death of her husband and the marriage of two of her
daughters, Jolenta and her third daughter entered the convent of the Poor
Clares. War forced Jolenta to move to another convent where, despite her
reluctance, she was made abbess.  For more, follow the link below:
