                  Istvan (Stephen) I was the King of Hungary from 1000 to 1038.   
                   The devotion of Istvan toward the Blessed Virgin Mary was such that he placed all   
                     his dominions under her special patronage.

                      In order to make Hungary a Christian nation, Istvan sent Abbot Astricus to Rome to   
                       petition Pope Sylvester II for the royal dignity and the power to establish episcopal sees.

Istvan's father Geza arranged Istvan's marriage to Gisela in 995.   
This marriage established the first family link between a Hungarian ruler and a Western European ruling house.   
Gisela was related to the Ottonian dynasty of Holy Roman Emperors.
