Czech history
Czech kingdom (Kingdom of Bohemia) is historical predecessor of Czechoslovakia and the modern Czech republic.

Czech kings ruled over other countries as over Poland, Hungary and Austria. Some parts of modern Germany belonged to lands ruled by Czech crown (Lusatia, Brandenburg including city of Berlin).
Bohemia is latin name for land of Boii (a celtic tribe). Celts were substituted by Germanic Marcomanni later and finally by a Slavic nation of Czechs in 5th century AD. Czechs were the first Slavic nation who adopted christianity.
Prague is capital of Czech and it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world with an unique mixture of romanesque, medieval, renaissance and baroque architecture.

The most famous royal dynasties ruled in Czech lands were Premyslids, Luxembourgs and Habsburgs.

The original coat of arms of Czech kingdom was black flaming eagle (coat of arms of Premyslid dynasty). The original banner was changed to red banner with a silver lion with a golden royal crown. The Czech lion has two tails.
A legend says that the lion came as coat of arms by order of Frederick the Barbarossa, HRE emperor. Barbarossa attempted to conquer a rebelling italian city of Milano without any success. Czech contingent of knights stormed the city on their own and they won.
