Kamler, Jiří ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Žemlička, Josef (referee)
(in English): There are not many of the original Moravian noble families that have been ranked among the high nobility in history. One of them is the Žerotín family, whose origins and development until the beginning of the 15th century is devoted to the following work. The first written mention of the family comes from the end of the 12th century, when their connection to the Moravian Margrave or the Czech King, typical for the nobility, is already evident. In the 13th century, the first phase of the expansion of family possessions and the expansion of the original family of Bludovicové into two branches - jičínská, which at the beginning of the 14th century died out and the šumvaldská, which in the 14th century acquired the village of Žerotín, after which the family later wrote. Throughout the period under review, the family did not exceed the Morava region, but in several cases it managed to assert itself into the structures of the provincial administration, whether in the administration of landlords or in the judicial area, etc. The ancestors of the Žerotín family did not stand aside and their contacts with the prominent ecclesiastical and religious communities, secular representatives of Moravia, or the whole kingdom, were evident, though sometime sporadically. In the course of the 14th...

Vařáková, Zuzana ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Nejedlý, Martin (referee)

Lord Ulrich III of Neuhaus. The profile of a Czech Aristocrat from the Time of John of Luxembourg's
Miczanová, Veronika ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Zilynská, Blanka (referee)
This dissertation deals with the life story of the medieval nobleman Ulrich III. of Neuhaus. The goal of the dissertation is to portray his life and work and put them in a larger context of the period in which he lived, that is the first half of the fourteenth century. Despite the fact that Ulrich III. did not hold any important office but devoted his life to administering his large dominion instead, he is one of the most important persons of the Neuhaus family. He contributed significantly to the structural changes of Jindřichův Hradec, for example by issuing an order to complete the Saint John the Baptist Church and inviting the Order of Friars Minor Conventual to live there. A confirmed Catholic, he lead the first Crusade against the Waldensians, who settled on his dominion. He also had a chamber in the Jindřichův Hradec castle decorated with a wall painting based on the legend of Saint George, the patron saint of the Teutonic Order, an order that had settled in Jindřichův Hradec alongside the Knights Templar. Due to the fact that he belonged to the Neuhaus family, he acquired the Castle of Telč in Moravia. The Castle subsequently became a significant property of the Neuhaus family until the Neuhaus family became extinct in 1604. With regard to the politics, Ulrich III supported King John of...
The King's Power Competence in the concept of Estates of Bohemia. Circumstances and creators of the Land Constitution of Wladislaw II. and the Registers of Archive of the Crown of Bohemia
Kulhánková, Veronika ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Zilynská, Blanka (referee)
After Jagiellonian dynasty ascended to the throne of Bohemia and especially at the time of permanent absence of the King in the land, the political ambitions of the estates of Bohemia, particularly the lords and knights, intensified. The estates strived, among other things, for codification of the land constitution which they succeeded in the beginning of the 16th century when the King issued the so-called Land Constitution of Vladislaus II. (Vladislavské zřízení zemské). At the same time, the estates also made an inventory of archives of the Crown deposited at Karlštejn castle, which is known as the Matouš of Chlumčany's Registry of Ten Coffers (Registrum desíti truhlic). These documents prove the power of bohemian nobility, who attempted to consolidate their position in judicial and administrational system of the country. At the same time they represented themselves as co-responsible political unit, alongside the King, which works for the good of the Kingdom and the whole Lands of the Bohemian Crown. My diploma thesis pursues the gradual growth of power of the bohemian nobility, who wanted to consolidate their position not only at the expense of royal cities, but also of the power of the King himself. The accent is mainly given to the most influential persons or aristocratic groups who...
Distant and unknown land of the Crown of Bohemia. Lower Lusatia in the Politics of Wenceslaus IV. of Bohemia.
Dufková, Tereza ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Novotný, Robert (referee)
Wenceslaus IV. is traditionally considered as a not very capable monarch, in contrast to his successful father, Emperor Charles IV. Not even modern historiography works are without a flattened negative view on this ruler. The aim of this work is to relativize Wenceslaus' alleged ruling inability in an example of his policy in Lands of the Bohemian Crown, namely in Lower Lusatia between years 1364-1419. The issue of the crown countries in this period has been so far in the background of Bohemian researchers' interest. Emphasis is placed on the socio- cultural background of Lusatian Margrave at the end of the 14th century and it is possible to also evaluate the position of Lower Lusatia throughout the whole Bohemian Crown. The focus of the thesis is an analysis of specific Wenceslaus' political steps, mainly based on charters research. The work is also focused on exploring the relationship between the sovereign and the Lower Lusatian nobility, cities and churches. The scope is also devoted to the contribution of John of Gorlitz and Jost of Moravia to the administration of Margrave. By analyzing the above- mentioned aspects, is possible to enrich the view of the government of Wenceslaus IV. and to relativize the traditional narrative of his inability to govern. Finally, it can prove the continuity of...

The thesis would like to contribute to describing the relation of Louis of Bavaria to Jan of Luxembourg and later also to his son Charles IV. Key words: Louis of Bavaria, Chronicle of Zbraslav, Vita Caroli, John of Bohemia, Charles IV., The Holy Roman Empire
The Lords of Kolditz and the Lords of Bergow in service of the Bohemian Royal Court in the 15th century
Jirsík, Tobiáš ; Bobková, Lenka (advisor) ; Novotný, Robert (referee)
The Lucembourg court attracted several noble families that had a oportunity to get a good status by serving a king and also hold offices. For such a service were ideal loyal nobles of newly arrived noble families, who didn't own any property in Bohemia. Lords of Colditz and lords of Bergov also belonged to them. The king rewarded them for their loyal service by giving them fiefs (especially in north-west Bohemia: Krupka and Bílina). The Luxembourg dynasty enabled these noble families a social rise. Lords of Colditz were connected to royal court since their beginnings in Bohemia. On the other hand some of the lords of Bergov hold offices, but they didn't hesitate to leave the court at a convinient moment. More likely they participated in newly emerging estates. During the reign of Wenceslav IV. lords of Colditz remained faithful to him, on the other hand lords of Bergov belonged to the main figures of his opposition. At the same time they changed the royal fiefs (Bílina was bought by lords of Colditz) for allod (Trosky, Turnov, Chlumec upon Cidlina). During the Hussite wars lords of Colditz and lords of Bergov were the fundamental support of catholic party. The only exception was John of Bergov, who was captured after the battle of Lipany. Albrecht of Colditz, their son Thimo and nephew John were...
