Regina Luctus

The Coronation and the Death of Bohemian Queen
Guta of Habsburg

The 13th century in Bohemia became a period of many changes and twists as well as a period of historically important monarchs. The position of the Přemyslid dynasty was consolidated in Europe by expanding their territories. 

Alliances with other important royal families were an important tool for this. With the marriage of Wenceslas II and Guta of Habsburg, the Přemyslid position gained further importance. The short life of Queen Guta inspired this concert programme, which brings together secular and sacred music of the late 13th century Přemyslid court.
