The text focuses on different aspects of the relation of Charles IV of Luxembourg, Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia, to the Czech language and other languages. As is well known, Charles IV mastered German, Czech, French, Italian and Latin, in both oral and written forms. He was also the author of many literary works (autobiography, legend, parts of chronicles, legal literature). In the Golden Bull (the constitution of the Holy Roman Empire), Charles IV set the Czech language as one of the three official languages of the Empire (together with German and Italian), promoted literature written in Czech and initiated the creation of Klaretovy slovníky. He sponsored the foundation of the Emmaus Monastery in Prague and its scriptorium, where numerous texts in Old Slavonic were created.
