Jan Jiří of Švamberk. The life story of a heir of legacy of last Rožmberk
NAUŠ, Stanislav
The aim of the bachelor thesis is to narrate the life story of Jan Jiří of Švamberk. The work begins with his childhood and the story leads to the question how his descendants dealt with father's legacy. Even though Jan Jiří was very significant person of his time, the historians have not given him a proper attention yet and they have focused only on several aspects of his life. This bachelor thesis tried to summarize information about Švamberk and also to bring new interpretation of his life. The author used available literature titles and archive documents to concentrate on Švamberk´s role both in his family relationships and on his position in politics. His character played indispensable role during debates concerning religious freedom. It was discovered that while Švamberk was debating with tolerant Catholics, other Protestants were able to confront with the Habsburgs even in armed conflict. The importance of Jan Jiří of Švamberk was also for his victory in fighting of Rožmberk's legacy. This heritage comprised, for instance, manors with gorgeous mansions, the archive in Třeboň or the famous library, where Jan Jiří could found pleasure and edification. The author attempted to prove the desire of Jan Jiří of Švamberk to be considered dignified successor of last Rožmberk. The different situation came out after Švamberk´s death and after his funeral in Ronšperk. After that his son Petr of Švamberk took care of the administration of manors himself. His irresponsible approach and refusing relations to the Habsburg was the cause why the legacy of Jan Jiří of Švamberk disappeared.
