King Stephen (Istvan), who lived from 975 to 1038, and was crowned King of Hungary 997, was said to be lifted to the sky with some frequency. His biographer, Chartruiz, Bishop of Hungary, revealed that this sometimes happened spiritually and at other times physically.
On one occasion, as detailed in Chartruis' Life of St. Stephen, King of Hungary. "While praying in his tent, he was lifted into the air by the hands of angels."
