Dlasta was a Queen in the Kingdom_of_Bohemia. She was one of Libussa's henchwomen. Valasca seized the government, placing women in all offices. She stated that only women should be soldiers. While women were to received military education, the boys were to be so treated as to render this impossible, their right eye and their thumbs being removed, making the handling of weapons in a fight out of the question--a piece of cruelty which betrayed the inherent weakness of her schemes and cause. Valasca is said to have reigned for seven years, and then after her death the business of the nation resumed its normal course. Great ruins on Mount Vidovole, known as the Divin-hrad ("The Virgin's City"), were long pointed out as the reputed headquarters of Valasca.
