This Day in History: 0929-09-28

– Good King Wenceslas of Bohemia fell victim to the ambitious and treacherous plot of his brother, Boleslaus the Cruel. Invited to a feast, he was ambushed the following morning, attacked, and ultimately murdered by his brother. Wenceslas’s legacy of kindness and piety endured, earning him sainthood and the title of the patron saint of the Czech state, his life immortalised in the timeless carol “Good King Wenceslas.” 👑💔
