Notes for this person

Judith of Thuringia (Czech: Judita Durynská, c. 1135 - d. 9 September after 1174) was the second wife of Duke and later King Vladislaus II of Bohemia and after 1158 the second Queen of Bohemia. Marriage to Vladislaus II Judith was the daughter of Louis I, Landgrave of Thuringia and Hedwig of Gudensberg. Vladislaus II married her in 1153, three years after the death of his first wife Gertrude. The main reason was that Judith was related to the new German King Frederick I. Vladislaus' bride was most eighteen years old; he was 15-20 years older. Queen Judith Probably in 1155, two years after the wedding, Judith gave birth to the first son. In medieval times the names for babies were chosen mostly by mothers, so it was probably Judith's idea to name the son Premysl (name of the legendary founder of the dynasty).[1] A chronicler wrote about Judith that she was of great beauty and mind, educated in Latin and politics. It is said that she often deputized for Vladislaus in his absence. When he was crowned in 1158, Judith became queen. Her coronation is not actually documented, but chronicles write about Queen Judith. During Vladislaus' rule a new bridge in Prague was built, where the Charles bridge stands today. It was the first stone bridge in central Europe and in honour of the queen it was called Judith's bridge. When Vladislaus abdicated in 1172, his wife followed him to exile. It is not known where she died, but her remains were found in a monastery in the town of Teplice. According to Emanuel Vlcek she died as an old lady after 1210, living to see the successful reign of her eldest son Premysl.[2] Children Ottokar, later king of Bohemia, first of a hereditary line Vladislaus, later duke of Bohemia as Vladislaus III Richeza (died 19 April 1182), married to the son of Henry II, Duke of Austria Literature KAREŠOVÁ, Z.; PRAŽÁK, J.
