Stephen I was born c. 975, became the first King of Hungary in c. 1000, and died 1038. He was canonized in 1083 by Pope Gregory VII. He is one of Hungary’s most venerated historical characters, featuring in poetry, music and visual arts. This modern statue of him stands high above Budapest at the Fisherman’s Bastion.

A colourful note: This shade, wild strawberry, appeared as a new tone for Crayola in 1990, rather more magenta-toned than I would expect of a strawberry colour.
