The Origins and Rise of Lords of Házmburk
Gerleová, Jana ; Žemlička, Josef (advisor) ; Drška, Václav (referee)
Nowadays, study of Czech nobility is one of the most popular topic in historiography. For historical research, there are a number of aristocratic families whose development, genealogy, property relations and ties to the king's court have not yet been elaborated in more detail. This was the reason why I chose genus of the Buzic with the focus on the Lords of Valdek as a topic for my bachelor thesis. Members of the Buzic family surrounded Czech princes and kings from the beginning of the Czech "state". We can find the notes and informations about them in many diplomatic and narrative documents. I decided to continue with the research of the history of this family also in my diploma thesis. My thesis focus primarily on the next part of this family, the Lords of Žebrák. Also among them there was many interesting and notable nobles. One of the most important was Zbyněk Zajíc of Žebrák. In the thirties of the 14th century he changed the castle Žebrák and the villages that belonged to this castle with King Jan of Luxemburg for the castle Budyně and the others villages. The Budyně domain was smaller but more profitable than Žebrák domain. Zbyněk also bought from the King the castle Klapý, which is nearby Budyně castle, and he renamed it after his nickname like Házmburk (in German: the hare castle). This...

Novotná, Markéta ; Žemlička, Josef (advisor) ; Maur, Eduard (referee) ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee)
Markéta Novotná Abstract - The Feudo-vassal System on Royal Estates in Early Modern Bohemia The study is devoted to the topic of feudo-vassal relations in early modern Bohemia presented on a sample of specific royal and chamber domains at the castle Karlštejn. The first part of the thesis describes how the feudo-vassal tenures were treated in Czech and European historical studies, using impulses from the philosophy and sociology. The others chapters are dedicated to the main object of this analysis - to the Karlštejn vassal system - a group of small-sized estates connected to castle Karlštejn through feudo-vassal bonds. The second chapter of the thesis deals with the problem of historical consciousness, where the castle Karlštejn is imagined as the site of "the national memory", which strongly effected the interpretation of the Karlštejn vassal system. The third (main) part of the thesis presents the factual analysis of the Karlštejn vassal system from the last third of sixteenth century to the turn of the seventies and the eighties of the next century. At the end of the study the analysis of four chosen vassal estates is added. Key words: Karlštejn, historiography, vassals, feudal system, domain, chamber, lower nobility

Friedlová, Jitka ; Dvořáčková, Dana (advisor) ; Žemlička, Josef (referee)
The aim of this work is to complete property tenure of Czech princesses and queens until the beginning of the 14th century. In connection with queens talk we about "dowry towns" formation. Under this term arises idea of the continuity of the transfer of widow's property. To be able to make such a generalization, it is necessary to study the provision of property wives of rulers from the standpoint of the previous developments, especially on the basis of diplomatic material and subsequently of narrative sources. According to the interpretation of existing proofs of property possession by princesses an queens, it will be possible to determine, whether there was a tradition of transfer of certain goods, not only towns but also movable and immovable property, rights and pecuniary pays. Obtained facts put the work into context of legal anchoring marital and widow's status. It is differentiated for these two categories, whether tenure which the queens were endowed with was the dowry, jointure or purely personal property. Mutual comparison between property tenure of female sovereigns is focused on presentation of different approaches to management of property issues with a greater or lesser degree of initiative. Keywords: Princesses and queens, dowry, jointure, widow's status, location of possession,...
Patrons, Clients, and Relatives: The Social World of the Old Town Prague in the 14th Century
Musílek, Martin ; Žemlička, Josef (advisor) ; Noga, Zdzisław (referee) ; Nodl, Martin (referee)
The present work focuses on the analysis of two main sources: the court book with market entries (Libri judiciorum or Libri contractuum), and lists of new city residents from the years 1324-1393. The text is divided into several chapters. Besides the description and presentation of the two main types of sources, a critical examination of the basic literature is undertaken, and the methodology of social topography is introduced. An outline of spatial mobility was created, including a basic topographical image of the city and its variations, though an examination of the Old Town real estate markets (especially houses and rural estates). Attention was given to the topographic situation of the Jewish Town, which formed an important part of the medieval urban complex, with coexistence of Christians and Jews within the city. Some aspects of urban migration could be observed, though analysis of the list of new city residents. This is generally regarded not only as an indicator of economic development of the city, but also allows one to monitor the demographic crisis of urban society. Given that a lender had to vouch for each new city resident, lists of new arrivals to the ranks of city burghers also suggest connections and relationships between people. In rare cases, it is possible to link data from the judicial...

The work focuses on four key features of Henry's rule - constructing consensus between ruler and elites, exploiting feudal rights, the use of mortgages, and the use of culture to project political themes.

The first group consists of Tyrolean chancery registers (Tiroler Kanzleiregister) and accounts books (Tiroler Rechnungsbücher, alternatively Raitbücher), the second of Austrian court poetry. Following the initial introduction of the sources, bibliography and methodology used for dealing with this particular topic, the consensual context is introduced, within which the rule of Henry of Carinthia was conducted, ranging from informal consultations to deliberations of the royal council. A list of counsellors, along with short biographical sketches, is included. The third and the fourth chapters consider the role played by...
