Today we go back yet again and step into the mists of time. This time we travel back 737 years to the year 1278 and witness the coronation of one of the greatest kings of Bohemia: Wenceslaus II. A king, that managed to get three Royal crowns for his family and who made the most powerful Empire of the day but also didn’t prepare his son for reigning and after his death the Premyslid dynasty went into freefall. How did it all happen?
