Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

We have lots of princess costumes around here. We are hoping to use them to dress as saints. Help me think of some saints who were royalty (or nobility). We do St Elizabeth of Hungary every year. I need at least one more.

Thanks!

I love this kind of question to do the research. I thought I remembered a conversation started by Erin looking for women saints that didn't become nuns, as her daughter wanted to be married with lots of children. I had recommended a book Treasury of Women Saints by Ronda Chervin but I can't find it, so maybe it was elsewhere. My search skills are going kaput.

I recently learned from reading Trianon that the Holy See considered Louis XVI to be a martyr for the faith.
