'...from Louis XIV to the Princes de Rohan in Sychrov and Charles X and Chateaubriand in Prague'

Louis XIV was a life-long enemy of the Holy Roman Emperors and Kings of Bohemia, Leopold I and Charles VI. The armies of his successor Louis XV occupied Prague in 1741. Thereafter, however, the Bourbons became allies of the House of Austria. During the French Revolution the resort of Teplitz/Teplice in Bohemia became a residence of many emigrés, including Charles-Joseph, Prince de Ligne, and the Princes de Rohan.

The 1950s-70s saw a renaissance in Czech glass design that re-established the Bohemian region’s global reputation in this area.
