St. Michael's Cathedral - Blessed Gisela

Veszprém, Hungary

Blessed Gisela of Hungary (Boldog Gizella - or Gisele, Gizella and of Bavaria; born 985, died 7 May 1065), was a Hungarian Roman Catholic saint, and the first queen consort of Hungary as the spouse of Saint Stephen of Hungary.

Gisela was a daughter of Henry II, Duke of Bavaria and Gisela of Burgundy.
She married King Stephen I of Hungary in 995, the couple had a son, Saint Emeric.
She lived a respectable life and helped Christianize the Hungarian people. After the death of her husband Stephen, she was forced to leave Hungary. She lived in the nunnery of Niedernburg in Passau, where she died. Her grave is a well-known holy place.
Her canonisation was attempted in the 18th century but failed. She was declared Blessed in 1975.
