Wenceslas IV, Luxembourgs, Lower Lusatia, Czech Crown, Crown Lands, ruling power, ruler’s documents
The government of Wenceslas IV is often viewed stereotypically, more or less negatively, which applies equally to the personality of the Czech king. Because of her broader interest in this monarch, the author attempts to explore one aspect of his government, namely Wenceslas’s relationship with the neighbouring Lands of the Bohemian Crown. Lower Lusatia, hitherto an ignored Crown Land, served as a model. The main objective of this study is to take stock of the ruler’s documents concerning Lusatia dating from 1364–1419. The collections in the Brandenburg Regional Archives in Potsdam, where the vast majority of the documents for Lower Lusatia is deposited today, serve as the main guidelines to me.
