St. Wenceslas; his feast day is September 28; Bohemian duke revered by the common people as their protector; assassinated by political rivals and promptly venerated as a martyr of the Czech people. A symbol of Czech Christianity and patron saint of the Czech Republic.
"Good King Wenceslaus" who went out on the feast of Stephen. St. Wenceslaus has a feast on September 28, but the carol has so attached him to Christmas that we hardly remember him otherwise. He is a hero for boys, though his story is rarely told.
