The story of Princess Libuse

Libuse and Premysl by Josef Myslbek Princess Libuse (read “Libushe”) was the daughter of Krok and as legend has it, she had visionary powers.

She became the first woman to rule Prague and married a humble ploughman Premysl. Together they started the Premyslid dynasty that would rule for 400 long years.

Libuse is said to have foreseen the seven hills of Prague growing into a marvellous city (which indeed happened), thus she’s considered to be the mother of beautiful Prague.
