I believe that's a different Wenceslaus (died 935). --Michael K. Smith 01:51, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Death Date[edit]

What is the source for a death date of 1253? According to Schwennicke, Europaische Stammtafeln (vol. 2), he died before 23 Sept 1248. --Michael K. Smith 01:51, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

The result of the debate was PAGE MOVED per discussion below. -GTBacchus(talk) 00:00, 3 February 2007 (UTC)


Why was this moved? Wenceslaus is the English spelling and the ducal articles conform to it. Srnec 23:11, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Wording in Paragraph II[edit]

"In 1241 Wenceslaus successfully repelled a raid on Bohemia by Batu Khan, although Moravia suffered devastation at the hands of the Mongols. Because Mongols did not sent main army to Poland, Bohemia and Silesia. That was consisted of only 20.000 mongols who defeated european elite knights such as Knights Templar, Teutonic knights, Hospitallers and mounted Polish heavy knights. In 1248 Wenceslaus had to deal with a rebellion of the nobility, led by his son Otakar. The rebellion was quelled and Otakar imprisoned."

Specifically, in the second and third sentences, I'm not exactly sure what's being stated. The second sentence reads, "Because Mongols did not sent main army to Poland, Bohemia and Silesia." I'm tempted to think that it's connected to the first sentence (i.e. "In 1241, Wenceslaus successfully repelled a Mongol raid on Bohemia, because the Mongols did not send their main army to Bohemia, Poland or Silesia, though Moravia suffered significant destruction at the hands of the Mongols), but I'm not sure if that's what the author was trying to say, and since no references are cited, I can't cross-reference them to clarify the sentence. The third sentence is also a point of confusion for me. Which army was made up of 20 000 men? The main army, or the one that was sent to Poland, Bohemia and Silesia? If it's the main Mongol army, there needs to be something to tie it to the rest of the paragraph. —Preceding unsigned comment added by CorporalSpringbok (talkcontribs) 20:07, 13 September 2007 (UTC)
