Duchy of Krumlov
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
In 1628, it was given to Hans Ulrich von Eggenberg by King Ferdinand II when he bestowed upon Hans Ulrich the title of Duke of Krumlov. The Bohemian possessions of the Eggenbergs went to Hans Ulrich's son, Johann Anton.
In 1649, the title passed to his son, Johann. He married Marie Ernestine of Schwarzenberg, who was a Countess of Schwarzenberg. With his death, the male line of the House of Eggenberg came to an end. The death of Marie Ernestine in 1719 caused the Bohemian possessions of the Eggenbergs to pass to her closest relatives, the Schwarzenbergs.
The Duchy of Krumlov was obtained by Prince Adam Francis Charles of Schwarzenberg in 1723, and the title of "Duke of Krumlov" is reserved for the head of the House of Schwarzenberg.
