Restoration attempts of the Emperor Charles
Zatloukal, Alois ; Balla, Petr (advisor) ; Rak, Jiří (referee)
During 1921, after the break-up of Austria-Hungary, Charles Habsburg attempted twice to return to the Hungarian throne. His attempts were unsuccessful in both cases. These restaurant attempts have resulted in the outbreak of the crisis in the newly established international post-war European system. The response of the individual states, in particular the reaction of the Little Entente headed by Edvard Benes, contributed to the escalation of the event to the brink of the war. The thesis aims to clarify the factors that led Emperor Charles to return to the throne. The thesis also deals with the Czechoslovak response to Hungarian events, its intensity, arguments and speeches with the help of analysis of Czechoslovak diplomatic reports and periodicals. The work clarifies that several factors contributed to decision of Charles to return to the throne. These include, for example, the Emperor's morale and belief in humanism, arising from the times of the education of a young Emperor, or, for example, the overwhelming trust in his subjugation. Furthermore, the Emperor's conviction about the support of the whole event both in Hungary and abroad. The second research question reveals the ways in which the Czechoslovak press and the Czechoslovak political representation reacted to the Hungarian events. The...

Explaining Prussian victory in the Austro-Prussian war of 1866, an analysis of material and nonmaterial factors
Hába, Tomáš ; Šafařík, Petr (advisor) ; Rak, Jiří (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the causes of Prussian victory in the Austro-Prussian war of 1866. It also builds on the proposition articulated by the British historian Paul Kennedy and others, that material predominance is the most important factor deciding the result of a conflict. However, it is not in an agreement. First of all, this work analyses whether any material imbalance even existed between Prussia, Austria and their respective allies Italy and the majority of the German confederation, by looking at the three most important aspects of it. Firstly, we deal with economic power examined in both absolute numbers and per capita. The primary indicator is gross domestic product but we also look at levels of industrialisation in all the countries involved. Second area of examination is military technology. Namely the quality of infantry, cavalry, artillery and railways. Third is the size of population and armies of the countries involved and their quality. Second part of this work analyses nonmaterial aspects of a state's power. First subject it covers is diplomacy. Second are intangible elements of military power. Specifically, these include strategy, tactics, organization, planning and leadership. Last chapter provides a synthesis of information covered in the preceding two chapters and proves the...
