Narrative podcast of Czech history for an English-speaking audience

Dec 28, 2018

The Dark Ages in Europe have ended, and there is a new Roman Emperor in the West; one who has a mutually beneficial understanding with the Pope, and territorial designs on the Czech lands.

Under this pressure from the Franks, a dynasty of Moravian princes rises to resist, and consolidates the Slavs in the Czech lands into the first true slavic state - Great Moravia.

In this episode, we describe how they laid the foundations of Czech statehood, introduced Christianity to the Slavs at large, and forged a uniquely Moravian culture on par with any in Europe.
