Saint Henry - King of Germany and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire (972-1024).
Henry the Pious was born in 972, and bore his father’s name. His father died when his son was 23 years old, and Saint Henry assumed the paternal title of Duke of Bavaria. It was at this time that he married Saint Cunegundes. They observed perfect chastity all their lives, and rivaled one another in their zeal and love for their subjects.
