                         Jolenta of Hungary (1235-1298) was the daughter of King Bela IV of Hungary and Maria Laskarina.   
                         She was the niece of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. When she was five years old, Jolenta was committed     
                          to the care of her older sister, Princess Cunnegund, who had married King Boleslaus II of Poland.   
                           Under their fostering care, she grew up a pattern of virtue.

After the demise of Boleslaus and after two of her daughters were married, 
Jolenta and her third daughter withdrew to the convent of the Poor Clares at Sandee.
