Duchess of Poland married to Duke Henry of Silesia.
This took fifteen years using petty criminals as laborers in the first Community Service Project. Meanwhile she became steadily holier, going barefoot and never changing her habit.
Sadly her eldest son, the next in line for Dukedom, was killed trying to keep invading Tartars at bay. She was forced to flee to a fortress at Chrosne and was never able to return.
