Ahoj to you all! :) Ahoj vespolek!

In the interest of getting this group a little more active, how about a little history lesson?


Přemyslovská orlice - Premyslid eagle



This eagle, also known as the Svatováclavská orlice or Plamenná orlice (St. Wenceslaus eagle or The flaming eagle) was the original symbol of the Duchy of Bohemia as the symbol of the fathering dynasty of Czechia, the Premyslids. The oldest depiction of the arms come from the coins minted by Duke Bedřich 1179–1181. The eagle there is depicted as surrounded by small crosses, symbolizing flames. The eagle itself is said to originate from the arms of the Holy Roman Emperors, depicting the closeness of the Czech Premyslids to the Imperial court and their prestige among the Imperial nobility. The flames were added when the Premyslids became the electors of the Emperor. They signified a new (and rather brutal) right or "prestige" the Premyslids were granted. As they arrived at the Imperial election, the Premyslids had the right to burn every surrounding village of the city where the election was being held to announce that "The Dukes of Bohemia have arrived". The Dalimil's chronicle (one of the pillars of Czech historiography) states that Břetislav I. had the right to announce his arrival at the imperial election by " . . . burning every place for a mile behind him with a crimson flame . . . " Suffice to say, this was never used in practice as no know records of this right being exercised exist (thank god).

Čekal jsem, že máš Dalimilovu kroniku přečtenou;)
A trochu mi tam nesedí sled událostí - když se Přemyslovci stali voliteli, tak přeci dostali do znaku lva.

Měl jsem za to, že ho dostal nějaký Otakar kdovíkterý za dobytí Milána.. spolu s uznáním dědičného královského titulu.
