Judith of Habsburg

Judith of Habsburg (1271 – 21 May 1297) was the youngest daughter of Rudolph I of Germany and his wife Gertrude of Hohenburg . Judith was a member of the Habsburg family.

Biography

When Judith was five, she became the object of her father's political plans. Her father signed the Vienna peace treaty with Premysl Otakar II of Bohemia , and they decided that Judith should marry Wenceslaus , son and heir of Premysl Otakar.

Judith's sisters also married powerful kings and dukes; her sister Klementia married Charles Martel of Anjou , son of Charles II of Naples , and her sister Matilda married Louis II, Duke of Bavaria .

The formal marriage (engagement) was in 1279 in Jihlava , the second marriage took place in early 1285 in Cheb , and the bride was given a dowry "from the Duchy of Austria, Moravian border to the border of Danube". The wedding in Cheb was followed by "festive" wedding night, but soon after, Rudolph took Judith back to Germany , since she was still of a young age.

Wenceslaus' corination had to be cancelled because Judith was not present. She did eventually leave her family in Germany and came to Prague to be with her husband. Like her father, Judith hated Zavish, Lord of Falkenstejn, step-father of her husband. He had acted as regent with the Dowager Queen, Kunigunda of Slavonia , whom he secretly married. Judith helped bring Zavish to trial and he was eventually executed in 1290, five years after the death of Queen Kunigunda.

They were crowned King and Queen of Bohemia in 1297. Judith wasn't in good health during the time of the corination having just given birth to her tenth child. She died weeks later.
