    Notes 
    • * BIOGRAPHY
      Wratislaw was born about 888, the son of Borziwoy I, duke of Bohemia,and Ludmilla, heiress of Psov (later canonised, who is venerated as apatroness of Bohemia). He was the younger brother of Spitignew I, whosucceeded their father as duke of Bohemia. Spitignew is rememberedsolely for his 895 alliance with Arnulf, duke of Bavaria (the Diet ofAugsburg). which separated Bohemia from Great Moravia. Designed toprotect Bohemia against the ravages of Magyar raiders, this pact alsoopened Bohemia to East Frankish Carolingian culture and paved the wayfor the eventual triumph of Roman Catholicism in Czech spiritualaffairs. Spitignew died in 915 and was succeeded by Wratislaw.

      About 906 Wratislaw married Drahomira von Stodar. They had threesons and three daughters, of whom their son Boleslaw would have progeny.Wratislaw died in battle against the Magyars. His date of death isgenerally given as 13 February 921. He was succeeded by his 13-year-oldson Wenceslas, who ruled Bohemia from the age of 18 but was murdered in935 by a group of nobles allied with his younger brother Boleslaw.Wenceslas was canonised, and remains the patron saint of the Czechpeople.
