The Přemyslids (Czech: "Přemyslovci", Polish: "Przemyślidzi", German: "Premysliden"), were a Czech royal dynasty which reigned in Bohemia (9th century1306) and in Poland (13001306).

Legendary rulers

The name of the dynasty, according to Cosmas in his "Chronica Boemorum" (1119), comes from its legendary founder, Přemysl, husband of Libuše.

Dukes of Bohemia

The first historical Přemyslid was Duke Bořivoj I, baptised in 874 by Saint Methodius. In 895, Bohemia gained independence from the Great Moravia. Between 1003 and 1004, Bohemia was controlled by Boleslaus the Brave, Duke of Poland from the Piast dynasty, grandson of Boleslaus I the Cruel.

In 1085, Duke Vratislaus II, and, in 1158, Duke Vladislaus II, were crowned King of Bohemia as a personal award from the Holy Roman Emperor. The title, however, was not hereditary.

Descendants of Nicholas, illegitimate son of King Přemysl Otakar II still, however, ruled Opava and Racibórz. This line ended in 1521, with the death of Valentine, Duke of Racibórz.
