Long Description:
Wenceslaus I or Wenceslas I, was duke of Bohemia from 921 until his death. Wenceslas is the subject of the Christmas carol "Good King Wenceslas".

He is the patron of the Czech Republic . He was the son of Vratislav I, Duke of Bohemia from the Premyslid dynasty. His father was raised in a Christian milieu through his own father, Borivoj I of Bohemia, who was converted by Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius, the "apostles to the Slavs". His mother Drahomíra was the daughter of a pagan tribal chief of Havolans and was baptised at the time of her marriage. Wenceslaus' murder in September of 935 was the result of a plot involving his younger brother Boleslav I of Bohemia.
He is venerated as Saint Wenceslaus and is the main patron saint of the Czech state.
