Finally Little touch of Bishop`s Court history
During the Romanesque period, at the end of the 12th century, the powerful bishop, Prince Jindřich Břetislav had a vast court built as a bishop‘s seat on the left bank of the Vltava river. His successors, bishops and archbishops, e.g. Jan of Dražice (which the name of the Dražické Square is derived) had the court extended and rebuilt. The fire in 1249, started by the rebels against the King Wenceslas I. caused, according to the chronicler Kosmas, an extensive renovation of the seat. In 1419 the court was plundered and burnt down. This was the fall of the court and its walls were used for the construction of houses of Prague bourgeoisie. The appearance of the house, today called according to its historical origin „The Bishop’s House”, emanates from 1843, when the reconstruction of the 16th century semblance was finished after six years of work.
