Could stories of Queen Katarina come from actual Bosnian royal woman Katarina Kotromanić, daughter of Ban Stephen II of Bosnia which married with Herman I Count of Celje a rather rich dynasty (among the richest in HRE) which might explain the first legend where she gives coins to the poor? Just hypothesis nothing that i claim to be the absolute truth.

The First Legend
[hr]
One morning, Queen Katarina ordered her servant to saddle her horse, setting off towards the villages around Bobovac. Everyone wondered about that beautiful girl dressed in a white cloak on a white horse, but no one recognized her; finally, she arrived in the village of Očevje – the old blacksmith’s mine, or majdan – and entered the first water mill she encountered. When she saw the people living in such poverty, she gave to every child a single golden coin.
