Queen St. Isabel
She is reputed to have founded charities and hospitals. In Portugal she is remembered for the miracle of the roses in which she was taking bread (or coins) to the poor only to be asked by her less than generous husband what she was carrying. The bread (or coins) was miraculously transformed into roses, thereby appeasing her spouse.
