Szent Imre 10 Szent Imre magyar királyi herceg Szent István király és Boldog Gizella királyné fia, a magyar trón örököse. Anyai nagybátyjáról, II. Henrik német-római császárról nevezték el, a Hahóti kódex és Pray-kódex Henricus néven említi őt. Kódexek és krónikák mesélik el életét, melyek főleg legendák voltak. Amit biztosan tudni lehet róla, hogy 1000 és 1007 között született a székesfehérvári ferences templom és rendház helyén korábban állt királyi palotában. Nagy gondot fordítottak nevelésére, 1015-től Gellért püspök vette maga mellé. Megtanult latinul, a trivium és a quadrivium ismereteit is elsajátította. 15 éves lehetett, amikor apja mellé került, aki beavatta őt az uralkodás és a hadvezetés rejtelmeibe. István vélhetően fia nevelését 23 éves koráig folytatta, teljes egészében az uralkodásra készítette őt fel. Ehhez természetesen egy ígéretes feleségre is szükség volt. A források más és más származású kiszemeltet emlegetnek. A 12. századi Imre-legenda említi először azt, hogy Imre herceg tudatosan kerülte a nemi kapcsolatot, állítólag szüzességi fogadalmat is tett. Ez nem lehetett igaz, mivel I. Istvánról szerzett hiteles forrás arról tanúskodik, hogy az utódlás érdeke volt a királynak, így az unoka sem lehetett kizáró ok.

István király Imrét jelölte ki utódjául, megalkotta az Institutio Morumot, vagyis az Intelmek Imre herceghez című írást, amiben mint magyar király, és mint atyja tanácsokkal, intelmekkel látja el őt mint a következő magyar királyt.
