Monument to Gaudentius and St. Adalbert in Libice nad Cidlinou, Czech Republic

Radim Gaudentius ( , ) (970 – c. 1020) was Archbishop of Gniezno and the first Polishmarker archbishop.

Radim was an illegitimate son of 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 Aventinemarker, with Radim adopting the name Gaudencius or Gaudentius. He accompanied Adalbert on his fatal journey to Prussia in 997.

Surviving the mission fatal to his half-brother, back in Rome he related the events of the journey to Abbot John Canaparius, who wrote a biography of Adalbert, and worked to promote his canonization.
