Frantisek Palacky (1798- 1876), the author of the monumental Dejiny narodu ceskeho (History of the Czech Nation) and leader of the Czech revival in the nineteenth century, was regarded by Masaryk as his "political teacher".
Palacky believed that the nation and nationality were higher forms of organisation than the state.
Palacky showed us that our Czech idea is truly a world idea, an existential question, the most existential of all: it is the idea that the relation of man to man, of nation to nation, must be determined in the most profound possible sense, sub specie aeternitatis.

 Frantisek Palacky - 29-03-2000 - Radio Prague
Frantisek Palacky was born in the East Moravian village of Hodslavice on June 14th 1798, the son of an evangelist teacher.
Frantisek Palacky was always a hard working man, both in his historical research, and his work to promote Czech sciences and culture, both at home and abroad, plus informing the Czechs of world events.
Palacky was banned from all of his public activities, except his post as the historian of the Bohemian estates, and he was constantly followed by the Austrian secret police.

 BookRags: Frantisek Palacky Biography
Frantisek Palacky was born at Hodslavice, Moravia, on June 14, 1798, into a petit bourgeois Protestant family with strong Hussite traditions--a fact of considerable influence on his future outlook.
In 1823 Palacky moved to Prague, where he was received with great expectations, both by the older Czech scholars (for example, J. Jungmann and J. Dobrovsky) and by the patriotic members of the Czech aristocracy, whose patronage (particularly of counts F. and K. Sternberg) permitted him to devote himself fully to scholarly and patriotic activities.
Palacky contrasted this with Czech (Slav) attachment to individual freedom and democracy, and he interpreted the Hussite movement (the central episode of his work) as his nation's effort to liberate the soul from the spiritual bondage of the Romano-Germanic Middle Ages.

Palacky persuaded the latter and another noble, Kaspar, to help subsidize the publications of the newly established Bohemian Museum, and so the Journal of the Bohemian Museum began to appear in 1827.
Palacky wanted the Austrian Empire to continue to exist but in a greatly changed form, that is, by recognizing the equal rights of all its nationalities and all its religions.
The Manifesto stated that its authors (really Palacky) had proposed to the Austrian Emperor that the Empire "be converted into a federation of nations all enjoying equal rights;" therefore, he proposed the summoning of a general European Congress of Nations.

Palacky’s major work, The History of the Czech People in Bohemia and Moravia, “brought nationalist momentum to the interpretation of history, putting Czechs on a level with the Germans”(p B13).

This required the knowledge of German, so the 9-year-old Frantisek was sent to live with the German-speaking family of his father's friend, where he could also attend the institute at the nearby castle, a privilege otherwise reserved for the sons of the gentry.
This 3-volume history was also Palacky's defence--based on scientific research--of the existence of the Czech nation and of the political and cultural contribution of the Czech nation to the European continent.
In the 1870's, Palacky's views grew sceptical; he saw the lack of understanding and recognition on the side of the empire of the needs and desires of its various nationalities, which was only confirmed by the so called Austro-Hungarian settlement in 1867.

 The Uses of History
While Palacky is still officially considered the "Father of the Nation," his name appearing on squares and streets around the Czech Republic, his multi-volume history is almost completely ignored.
Palacky worked to identify the Czech past for his Czech audience (also upper class, white, and relatively wealthy), resuscitate it, and, in so doing, encourage his audience to turn their energies into political action for the revival of that heritage.
Palacky hoped to return the Czech national character to a position equal to the politically dominant opposition.

In hope of quelling the country's continuous unrest, Joseph II in 1781 granted an Edict of Toleration, an agreement that gave the people the right to speak their language and to have a measure of autonomy under Bohemian kings.
Czech national feelings reached a high pitch in the 19th century, encouraged by a historian named Frantisek Palacky, who emphasized his people's identity by writing about their long struggle for freedom.
"The Hussite war," Palacky wrote, "is the first war in history that was fought not for material interests but for intellectual ones—for ideals."

I would only like to make an important addition: the poet, writer and journalist Karel Havlicek (1821-56).
A close collaborator of Frantisek Palacky in the revolutionary year of 1848, Havlicek had a great facility with the Czech language; he was a master of satire, wit and all idiomatic usage.
A democrat who pressed for reforms and a federalization of the Hapsburg Empire, he was exiled by the Hapsburg authorities to Brixen in Tyrol, only to return home a dying man. Having been a tutor in Russia as a young man, Havlicek warned about the imperial ambitions of that country.
