  1. Whose gravestone is it? I see whoever it was died in 1271. A long time to remember someone.

    • It’s the tomb of one of our saints, Árpádházi Szent Margit. She was the daughter of a king, who offered her to God after Hungary was completely ruined by the Tartars, to make sure nothing similar will happen again. She was living in this monastery and the island was named after her (before this its name was the Island of Rabbits).
