Son and successor of Wenceslas I; king of Bohemia and Moravia (1253-78) and duke of Austria (1253-74); led crusades to East Prussia (1254) and Lithuania (1266-67); extended (1260-69) his domain from Silesia to the Adriatic; divested (1274, 1276) of all territories save Bohemia and Moravia by Rudolf I; rebelled, slain at Battle of Durnkrut.
The son and successor of Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, Wenceslas made his capital in Prague and largely ignored his German territories, which were rent with wars between the towns and the nobles; the German princes finally deposed him for drunkenness and incompetence in 1400, choosing Rupert of the Palatinate in his stead.
The wars, however, profoundly influenced Czech national consciousness and significantly altered the social structure of Bohemia by shifting power in the cities to the Czech bourgeoisie from the immigrant Germans, who were driven out during the fighting.
