Scenario Background: Power Struggle of the Premyzslids

Vratislav II became prince regent of Bohemia in 1055. During his reign, which would later gain him the title "King", power struggles with his family and the nobility of Bohemia and Moravia where constant.

Vratislav II was first made margrave of Moravia-Olmütz by his older brother Spytihnev II, but quarrels between them led to Vratislavs flight to Hungary. A reconcilation took place and Vratislav received the title of an indepent Duke of Moravia but when Spytihnev II died a little later in 1061 AD Vratislav finally became Archduke of Bohemia.

In 1063 he created the independent bishopric of Olmütz, the political and economic heart of Moravia. To further weaken the position of his younger Brothers Konrad and Otto he also divided Moravia, making them poor and thus peaceful vasalls. The oldest Brother, Jaromir, was practically forced to become Bishop of Prague.

For faithful service to the German Emperor Vratislav became Overlord of the Lausitz March and Northern Austria but lost them both by 1085. Still Vratislav is remembered with great affection by his people since he became the first King of Bohemia in 1086.
