Vila Flor, Portugal

Elizabeth of Portugal known as Saint Queen Elizabeth married King Denis of Portugal in 1282.  From the beginning Elizabeth showed a great compassion to the poor. It is stated that she would leave the palace disguised, in order to take food to the poor. One of the miracles attributed to her is the “miracle of the roses”. After the king had discovered she was leaving the palace to take food to the poor he forbade her to do it. However, she never gave up and every day she was still leaving behind the king’s back. One day in the winter time she was carrying pieces of bread hidden in her dress. The King saw her going out and stopped her asking, “What you are carrying?”. When she answered, “Roses, my lord.” he didn’t believe because it was winter. As he asked her to show him the roses, she obediently unfolded the dress and there were roses instead of bread.

Isabel de Portugal conhecida como Rainha Santa Isabel casou com D. Dinis de Portugal em 1282. Desde o início Isabel mostrou uma grande compaixão para com os pobres. Afirma-se que ela deixava o palácio disfarçada, a fim de levar comida aos pobres. Um dos milagres que lhe é atribuído é o "milagre das rosas". Assim que o rei descobriu que ela deixava o palácio para levar comida aos pobres, ele proibiu-a de o voltar a fazer. No entanto, ela nunca desistiu e todos os dias ela continuava a sair sem o rei saber. Um dia, no inverno ela levava pedaços de pão escondidos no seu vestido. O rei viu-a sair e parou perguntando: "O que está a levar?". Quando ela respondeu: "Rosas, meu senhor.", ele não acreditou porque ser inverno. Ao pedir-lhe que mostrasse a rosas, ela obedientemente abriu o vestido e havia rosas em vez de pão.
