Edmund Schwarzenberg and a Crisis of the Noble Society in the Interwar Period, 1918-1939
Míka, Pavel ; Horčička, Václav (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee)
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.
