  • Notes 
    • "[A] knightly adventurer, he used his Bohemian kingdom to finance his constant schemes and intrigues, that sometimes were successful through a combination of energy, ability, and luck, his campaigns took him throughout Europe, to include three Crusades against the Lithuanians, slain as a French ally at the battle of Crécy." [The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England (citation details below).]
