In its most characteristic form the legend goes as follows. One day the young but pious Elizabeth, in the company of one or more serving women, descends from Wartburg Castle down to the village of Eisenach, below the castle. She is carrying meat, eggs, and bread under her mantle. Supposedly she has taken items from the family dining table to distribute to the poor in the village, against the wishes of her family, who frown upon such behavior. Halfway down, she unexpectedly meets her husband Ludwig IV of Thuringia, who asks, upon seeing her bulk, what she is carrying. Embarrassed and speechless as she is, she does not know what to say. Ludwig opens her mantle, and to his surprise in the dead of winter he finds her carrying a bouquet of roses.

                 It was interesting that when Elizabeth married Louis in 1221, Louis also became Landgrave of Thuringia in 1221.

                         St. Elizabeth used her royal position to advance her mission for charity.   
                           In 1223, Franciscan friars arrived in Thuringia and taught Landgravine Elizabeth   
                             all about Francis of Assisi's ideals.

Below Wartburg Castle Elizabeth built a hospital with twenty-eight beds and visited the inmates daily to attend to them.
