Helenathe Empress

Helena, the Empress, mother of Constantine, became a Christian after the defeat of Maxentius. Iraclibim says she visited Jerusalem-in 326 and discovered the Holy Sepulchre and the three crosses. She was canonised after death, her festival being August 8th. There is a saint in the Greek Church of the same name, who lived in the 10th century, and was of noble birth.
