„ANNA, THE CZECH QUEEN“. THE OLDEST DAUGHTER OF WENCESLAS II AND HER LIFE STORY
Languages of publication
The article deals with the neglected Czech Queen Anna Premyslid (1290–1313), the rdest daughter of King Wenceslaus II. Anna, who was married to Henry of Carinthia in 1306, became one of the Premyslid “heiresses” after the Olomouc murder and based on this title she “arranged” the Bohemian royal crown for her husband twice. She is mentioned in the local sources (specifically in the Zbraslav Chronicle) in relation with her younger sister Elizabeth who replaced her in the role of the Bohemian Queen. The strictly negative evaluation of Queen Anna introduced in the Czech historiography by Petr Žitavsky contradicts the picture of Anna in chronicles and other written materials originating from the Alpine countries. The article also deals with Anna’s těles in local and foreign sources, the question of her offspring or with diplomatic materials related to the Premyslid Queen. Attention is also paid to the period of 1311–1313 when Anna lived in Tyrol and Carinthia. The most valuable source is Anna’s testament written before her death in Ljubljana in September 1313.
