Oldrich von Böhmen

  • Born: Abt 975
  • Marriage: Božena
  • Died: 11 Nov 1034 about age 59

  General Notes:

Oldrich was Duke of Bohemia from the Premyslid dynasty 1012-1033 and briefly 1034. Oldrich became Duke when he deposed his brother Jaromir in 1012. Discarding his wife on the grounds that they were childless, Oldrich married a peasant woman known as Bozena. Oldrich and his son Bretislav sought to win back Moravia from the Poles, and in 1019 Bretislav drove the Poles out of the eastern lands.

Oldrich was deposed by the Holy Roman Emperor Conrad II in 1033,and replaced with his brother Jaromir, but he in turn was captured, blinded and deposed by Oldrich, who seized power again. Oldrich died soon afterwards; later examination of the skeleton revealed that Oldrich's skull had suffered a fatal blow.

Oldrich had a relationship with Božena. (Božena was born about 980.)
