|Archbishop of Gniezno|
Libice nad Cidlinou
Radim was an illegitimate son of Bohemian Prince Slavník, and thus the half-brother of Adalbert of Prague. In 989, the two journeyed to Rome where they joined the Benedictine monastery of Sts. Boniface and Alexius on the Aventine, with Radim adopting the name Gaudencius or Gaudentius. He accompanied Adalbert on his fatal journey to Prussia in 997.
Historians are not certain with regards to his date of death, suggesting a range of 1006 to 1022. His date of birth is also an estimate, in the range of late 960s to early 970s.
He is commemorated as Saint Radim in the Czech edition of the General Roman Calendar with an optional memorial on Oct. 12.
