Bohemian nobility

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

Aristocracy was abolished by law in December 1918 at the occasion of birth of the independent Czechoslovak Republic.
