On the Edge of the Military Society. Military Invalids, Deserters and Delinquents in the Imperial-Royal Army in the Seven Years' War
Švehelka, Ondřej ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Bělina, Pavel (referee) ; Petráň, Josef (referee)
This thesis concerns military invalids, deserters and delinquents in the Imperial-Royal Army during the Seven Years' War (1756-1763). Its essence lies in the research of documents originated from the activity of the Representations and Chambers, the supreme representative offices in Bohemia and Moravia. The elementary methodological approach comes from a positivist conception, therefore it interprets the information found within the sources as a story (in a certain sense of word) based on the reality which is recorded by them. The theoretical part is enhanced by the outcomes of study of auxiliary books called Elenchs that provide information even about such sources that have not been preserved till today. Thus, I try to answer the question to which extent it is still possible to use them. The main component of the work is formed by three chapters which are dedicated to particular categories of the military persons in an order stated above. Within them, I present the results of the source research that, in the case of the invalids, concern notably their economic security and utilization for the Habsburg Monarchy's war effort. The chapter about the military deserters continues my previous research and amends it (among else) with newly found facts within the sphere of the enlightened-absolutist...

Vojtěch Kessler Military monuments and Historical Memory Toward the reception of sepulchral-military monuments of Wars between 1757 and 1914 in the Czech Lands Abstract Topic of the thesis is reception of war monuments on territory of Czech Republic with relation to events between Seven Years' War and Prussian-Austrian war. In thesis war monuments are perceived as specific places of memory. Their so called second life modifies historical awareness about mentioned war events of Czech - or more precisely German- Czech-society in watched period. Changes of relationships to historical monuments are usually dynamic. Distinctive discontinuities - such as changes of government, social systems or departures of whole ethnic groups - influence also reception changes of places, objects and historical memory that are formed woth such places.
Christian IV., Mansfeld and the Invasion of Silesia and Moravia. Several Aspects of the Danish Phase of the Thirty Year's War

Vít MIŠAGA, Christian IV, Mansfeld and the Invasion of Silesia and Moravia. Several Aspects of the Danish Phase of the Thirty Years' War, PhD dissertation, Charles University in Prague 2014 Summary In Czech and European historiography of the early modern period, the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) is one of the most discussed topics. Among Czech historians, there has always been an understandable emphasis on the revolt of the Bohemian estates, also known as the Bohemian phase of the war (1618- 1621). The Danish phase (1625-1629) is considerably less popular. The winners had already been or - to be more precise - seemed to be almost determined, and the further developments of the war did nothing to change the fate of the Czech lands. Analysis of the second half of the 1620s is therefore dominated by other topics - the recatholisation process, exile waves or the character of Albrecht von Wallenstein. Foreign historiographers also seem to downplay Denmark's influence. It is as if King Christian's unsuccessful attempt to fight the Emperor was only biding everyone's time until the "Lion of the North", Gustav II Adolf of Sweden, makes his great entrance. Or at least that is the perspective of an "all-knowing" historian who already knows the result. This thesis is trying to bring a different perspective. It is based...
Bohemian lands and the War of 1813
Kessler, Vojtěch ; Bělina, Pavel (referee) ; Stellner, František (advisor)
In my work I try to analyze the war events of the year 1813, which took place on our land. I focused mostly on the reactions to the events from the inhabitants of the cities and the countryside. Therefore the key questions were - how did the inhabitants see and understand the major war events of their time. I also kept in mind the reflection about the economical difficulties caused by the military actions, or by a simple passing of the armies. For the obvious reasons I focused on the inhabitants of the north of the Bohemia region. It turned out that the war is still understood by a simple man of the beginning of the 19 century as a God's deal or as a caprice of the mighty. The people realized it's destructive potential only if it directly affected them. We could say that the level of the disagreement and the laments is inversely proportional to the distance between the places where the battles took place or where the armies were passing and the residences of the people manifesting them. Despite the sufferings of the war and the economic exhaustion, very soon after the battles had stopped, news about the natural cycles and the harvest started to reappear in the chronicles. Those were undoubtedly the events of a great importance for a person of that time.
The Danish invasion of Silesia and Moravia 1626-1627

Není mnoho okamžiků v historii, kdy by naše země byla v úzkém kontaktu s Dánskem. Styky obou zemí byly a do jisté míry stále jsou náhodné. Jako by velká "přehrada" - Německo - oddělovala obě země radikálně a navždy. Jen několik střípků se dá poskládat do drobné mozaiky česko-dánských kontaktů. Od dánské královny Dagmar, dcery Přemysla Otakara I., muselo uběhnout několik staletí, než se v našich zemích přívlastek "dánský" výrazně objevil u hvězdáře Tychona de Brahe na dvoru Rudolfa II. Po bohulibých vědeckých bádáních měli další příběh psát vojáci třicetileté války. Tato práce pojednává o vpádu vojsk generála Petra Arnošta z Mansfeldu a vévody Jana Arnošta Sasko-Výmarského do Slezska a na Moravu, který proběhl v letech 1626 až 1627. Zatímco Mansfeld měl vojsko vlastní, resp. placené nizozemskými stavy a Anglií, vévoda velel plukům dánského krále Kristiána IV. Ten stál v letech 1625 až 1629 v čele protihabsburské koalice ustanovené v Haagu. Diverze do zmíněných zemí byla zahájena v červenci 1626. Úkolem výpravy bylo splnění mnoha cílů a až do října 1626 do ní byly vkládány mnohé naděje. Odvážný podnik měl získat haagské alianci strategickou převahu. Cílem bylo přenést válku dál od Dolnosaského kraje až na nepřátelské uzemí a po spojení se sedmihradským vévodou Gáborem Bethlenem táhnout snad až na Vídeň. Vinou...
Documents to the history of the Napoleonic Wars at the family archives of Kinský. To the Czech ancestors of prince Józef Poniatowski
Švehelka, Ondřej ; Mikulec, Jiří (referee) ; Bělina, Pavel (advisor)
This paper regards two mutually linked objectives. The first of them is to picture the history of the old and significant dynasty of Kinský in the eighteenth century and during the Napoleonic Wars, which is supposed to back up the second and main objective, namely to describe the lifetimes of a few ancestors of the Polish prince and army-leader Józef Poniatowski, who was in service of Napoleon's armies, and who died in 1813 at the Battle of Leipzig. These ancestors were his parents Andrzej Poniatowski and Marie Terezie Kinská, following her father Jan Leopold Kinský of the Chlumec count stem. Andrzej Poniatowski and Leopold Kinský embody a certain similarity - they both have been wrongfully effaced; while Andrzej by his son, Leopold by his more famous ancestors who notably affected the Habsburg Empire in the end of the seventeenth and in the first half of the eighteenth century. I would like to, therefore, point out the importance of these two men, too.
