The Second Life of John Of Görlitz? The Image of the Duke and His Duchy in the Historiography of the 16th To 19th Century

By Jan Zdichynec


The article deals with the „second image“ of Duke John of Görlitz (1370–1396) in Czech and Upper Lusatian historiography of the 16th to 19th century. It analyses the roots of the stereotype linked with this political figure and it comes to the conclusion that the youngest son of Charles IV holds only a marginal place in the historic narrative about Upper Lusatia
