Zaitsek von Egbell-Habsburg Officer 1824-1918
Krátký, Jaroslav ; Vlnas, Vít (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee) ; Macková, Marie (referee)
This thesis is focused on the officers and officer dynasties of the Austrian and Austro-Hungarian army. Through case studies, I examine the situation of the officer corps in the long 19th century, with reverberations up to the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire's existence (until 1918). The title of the thesis includes the name of the Zaitsek von Egbell family, whose three generations experienced a significant social rise during the 19th century, mainly due to a combination of successful service to the emperor (in office and in the army) and a marriage strategy oriented towards noble families with a military tradition. An important factor in the military careers of two generations of the Zaitsek family was the merits of 1848 and 1866, times of social upheaval and war. In addition to the case study of the Zaitsek family, I attach two other case studies in which I examine officer families with different social backgrounds from each other. The ancient dynasty of military professionals is represented by the Ponz von Panz family. Officers from aristocratic backgrounds with a tradition of prominent positions in the military are exemplified by members of the Windischgraetz family. I intersperse the above three basic case studies with sub-biographical probes of individuals from both officer and civilian...

Řehořová, Barbora ; Županič, Jan (advisor) ; Buňatová, Marie (referee)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is an analysis of Crown Prince Rudolf's opinions as reflected in his original texts, primarily in his newspaper articles, which were published anonymously. The author focuses on texts written about three main topics: Austrian nobility, Rudolf's attitude towards the many nations living within the Habsburg monarchy and the functionality of dualism or the possibility of a different form of government. The author has used the following methods to explore these topics: analysis of newspaper articles, other original texts and analysis of correspondence with fellow journalist Moritz Szeps as well as literature search. The thesis presents the situation in the Austro-Hungarian monarchy in the 1870s and 1880s and describes Rudolf's position on the issue of nationalism in a multi-ethnic monarchy, his views concerning the Balkan question, religious tolerance and the Jewish question. The Crown Princes' opinion on dualism and its disadvantages compared to a unified empire, his attitude towards the possibility of further splitting of the monarchy or its federalization, and his opinion on the possibility of the monarchy's dissolution are also presented.

Experienced and witnessed. The house of Collalto, World War I and Interwar Period Portrayed in Ego-documents of Maria Theresa Collalto
Jánská, Barbora ; Županič, Jan (advisor) ; Horčička, Václav (referee)
The bachelor's thesis outlines several chapters from the life of Countess Marie Therese Collalto e San Salvatore (1866-1940), a member of one of the oldest European noble houses, occasional writer, feuilletonist, and author of three so far unpublished memoire texts, which are crucial for this study. Through them, the countess reveals many everyday aspects of life of the nobility in the end of "the long 19th century", as well as some important milestones in the history of her own noble house. Last, but not least, she also describes the functioning of a monastic hospital of the Order of Malta in Sofia (Bulgaria), where she worked as a head nurse during World War I, or the life of European aristocracy between wars, especially in the successor states of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The analysis of these sources - egodocuments - can thus offer a riveting and authentic insight into many subjects of social history, gender history or history of the elites, which have still been neglected by our domestic historiography. This thesis is the first modest attempt to introduce the personality and work of Countess Collalto in her historical context to a contemporary reader. Key words: Collalto, egodocument, aristocracy, World War I, women's history, history of the elites

Šebková, Jarmila ; Županič, Jan (advisor) ; Žáková, Michaela (referee)
The master thesis focuses on Sudeten German aristocratic family of Hartig from Mimoň during the first half of the 20th century. The Hartig family - as many other members of the aristocratic elite, Austrian citizens and Sudeten German inhabitants - faced important political changes at that time. The aim of the thesis is to answer the question how did the Hartig family deal with these changes. Special attention was aimed to the cases, in which their roles of Austrian citizens, Sudeten Germans and Czechoslovakia inhabitants came into conflict. The thesis is a case study which deals with the life stories of the Hartig family from the available archival materials. Conducted research exposed that the main aim of the members of the Hartig family was to stay in Mimoň even at the cost of a great financial and social concessions. Their attachment to the family residence in Mimoň was not weakened neither by economic problems nor by changing of the political regimes in the region. Hartig family was willing to litigate with the Czechoslovak offices or on the contrary adapt themselves to the Nazi regime because of their seat in Mimoň. They were reluctant to the subsequent repatriation to Austria after the end of the second world war, although they always perceived Austria as the place of the family's origin and...

The bachelor thesis analyses the biography of Prince Edmund Schwarzenberg, a member of one of the richest and noblest houses in Europe. The main aim of the thesis is to expand his personality on the basis of historical sources and thus create a more comprehensive view of a man who was completely out of his time. He lived almost his entire life in debt and socialized with people of a different status than was common given his background. At the outset, this work introduces the reader to the context of a time when the old orders of the monarchy were literally being shattered and new states with different political systems were being created, which it was the members of the higher families who had to face. This person faced this new era in a rather special way, which is why this thesis is dedicated to him. Keywords: Edmund Schwarzenberg, Nobility, The House of Schwarzenberg, Edmund Černov.
