MM Video: Royal Saints


  1. What about Casimir of Poland? Have you seen this video? For Some reason they include Lady Jane Grey but not Mathilde?

  2. Couldn't include everybody and I stuck to reigning monarchs and consorts for the most part. As for Jane Grey and no Mathilde, I don't agree with it but that's pretty common in listing English monarchs. I'm not sure why, Empress Mathilde was contested but there was no doubt as to her position whereas Jane Grey, well, that was more or less an attempted coup. I don't consider her to have been a monarch. As soon as King Edward breathed his last Mary I was Queen, end of subject.

  3. Anyone have any idea approximately how many monarchs, past and present, have been canonized as Saints?
