|Saint Elizabeth of
Hungary, Widow, 1207-1231
St. Elizabeth of Hungary is noted for her humility and charity, so she is often shown dressed as a Franciscan tertiary in the act of giving food or other assistance to the poor (example) or in portraits with a basket of bread (example) or flowers. Being of royal birth and marriage, St. Elizabeth is sometimes shown with a crown, such as the very modest one at left.
Feast day: November 17
