'''Abgar V''' was a 1st century king of Edessa who wrote to [[Jesus]] asking for healing.  Jesus' reply that he would send one of his [[apostles]] to Abgar to heal him and [[preaching|preach]] the [[Gospel]] to him was accompanied by an imprint of his face on a piece of cloth, which has come to be known as the [[Icon Made Without Hands]].  The [[Apostle Thaddeus]] eventually did visit Abgar, healing him and [[convert]]ing him to the Christian faith.
