    Default Thursday Trivia: St. Wenceslas

    The main square in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, is dedicated to St. Wenceslas, the man we know as "Good King Wenceslas" from the Christmas carol.

    In real life, he wasn't a king; he was the Christian duke of Bohemia. In A.D. 935, the pious Wenceslas was on his way to church, when he was murdered by assassins. He was elevated to sainthood soon after his death and declared king posthumously.

    I think I would rather be a live duke than a dead saint. Just saying!
