Bohemian nobility

Bohemian or Czech nobility refers to the noble families of the lands of the Bohemian Crown (historically composed of Bohemia proper, Moravia, Silesia (especially Upper) and Lusatia), also known as "Bohemian Crown", "the Czech lands" or "lands of the Crown of Saint Wenceslas".

Aristocracy was abolished by law (No. 61/1918 Sb. z. a n.)[1] in December 1918, shortly after the establishment of the independent Czechoslovak Republic.
