...the more extreme Hussites soon became known as the Taborites ... or

Untitled[edit]

Orphans (sirotci) a name they adopted after the death of their beloved
leader and general Jan Žižka.

According to Turnbull, the Orebites rather than the Taborites used the name "Orphans". Although I see very few references to the Orebites apart from in his book, and it appears they would often be lumped in together with the Taborites. Is it worth noting the distinction between the Taborites and Orebites here?

Epiletic fit[edit]

On hearing this news King Wenceslaus succumbed to an apoplectic fit, and died a few days afterwards (16 August 1419).

What? Sounds apocryphal. Also, does not match up with the biography on his page, which says he died of a heart attack while hunting. -- 71.191.36.194 17:21, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

But it was correct: Franz Palacky Geschichte von Böhmen 1845 vol. 3 part 1 page 421-422. Apoplexy on left side of body following fist fight, developing into pain in the left arm and paralysis, combined with such frequent vomiting that he could not take the Holy Sacrament. After appr. ten days he suffered from a second (spontaneous) apoplexy, followed by death within some hours. Palacky's critical notes are citing several sources, Aeneas Sylvius cap. 37 and Pelzel's Incidentia. The latter explicitly says et post meridiem, facto jam prandio, hora diei XIX, ut quidam ajebant, in morbum incidit apoplecticum, et circa horam ejusdem diei XXII mortuus est in dicto novo castro, ipsum circumstantium suorum in medio dilectorum. 82.117.156.241 (talk) 01:29, 28 March 2008 (UTC)Mensurabilis

Beautiful rides[edit]

Wouldn't the spanilé jízdy be better translated as the great rides? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 20:57, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Well, I'd rather translate it as NOBLE RIDES in order to maintain the original meaning. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.24.81.69 (talk) 18:35, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Women in the Hussite rebellion[edit]

This site

http://mackays1626.com/Site/HussiteWars14201434-681.html

Claims that Jan Hus stated that "Women were made in the image of God and should fear no man”

and that this 'set the stage for women to preach at Hussite services and participate in governing councils, not to mention fight beside their men in battle.'

If this is true I would think this should be a major factor in this article. Can anyone clarify this and / or suggest a reason why this shouldn't be in the article?

The Scourge of the Hussites[edit]

Johann von Pfalz-Neumarkt fought a few successes in battle against the Hussites. Sometimes he only managed to prevent a defeat turning into desaster, but in 1426 he defeated a Wagenburg near Klattau/Klatovy, and on September 21st, 1433 his forces - about 1200 soldiers - attacked a raid of 1600 Hussites at Hiltersried. The only Hussites to escape were the commanders and about 130 men who fled to Pilsen. Johann's force suffered 14 casualties in battle, and about 120 men died of their wounds afterwards. Johann was granted the honorific "Hussitengeissel", and in Pilsen the Utraquistes and the Taborites started to turn against each other. I think that's worth of mention.
