The paper presents the answers to the so-far unanswered questions concerning the origin of the eminent courtier of Wenceslas IV and later the archbishop of Prague, Konrad von Vechta, and his brother Konstantin. On the basis of a study of the sources, the author disproves the thesis on the two brothers being from the Bremen patrician family von Vechta, which has prevailed in the literature, and on the other hand documents that they came from the Puls family in Vechta. They left for Prague because of their university studies – Konstantin passed his baccalauréate exam at the Faculty of Arts in 1387 while Konrad was matriculated at the then independent Law University in 1390. Their later career indicates chat opportunities for social climbing were offered by a medieval university regardless of the degrees attained.
