The Kings of Bohemia are usually dated from 1212 when the title was confirmed by the Sicilian Bull, though an illustrious line of Dukes stretches back to the early 9th century. Previous dukes did claim the title of king however it was not a hereditary title.

As per tradition the kingdoms of Austria and Bohemia are held in personal union. Bohemia's crown dates (officially) from 1212. Austria's a more recent 1898.

AustriaEdit

Austria was originally a march (margraviate) within Bavaria.

House of Babenberg
Leopold I Herzog Leopold I. Babenberg (976-994)
Henry I Herzog Heinrich I. Babenberg (994-1018
Adalbert Adalbert der Siegreiche (1018-1055)
Ernest Ernst II. der Tapfere (1055-1075)
Leopold II Herzog Leopold II. Babenberg (1075-1095)
Leopold III Herzog Leopold III. Babenberg (1095-1136)
Leopold IV Markgraf Leopold IV. Babenberg (1137-1141)
Henry II Herzog Heinrich II. Babenberg (1141-1156)

The 1156 Prviliegium Minus elevates the March to a Duchy, making it independent of Bavaria.

House of Babenberg
Henry II Herzog Heinrich II. Babenberg (1156-1177)
Leopold V Herzog Leopold V. Babenberg (1177-1194)
Frederick I Herzog Friedrich I. der Christliche (1195-1198)
Leopold VI Herzog Leopold VI. Babenberg (1198-1230)
Frederick II Herzog Friedrich II. Babenberg (1230-1246)

After Frederick's death Austria is disputed between various claimants, the longest lasting being Ottokar II of Bohemia (1251-1278). He is eventually defeated by Emperor Rudolph I who would divide his lands between his sons.

House of Hapsburg
Rudolph I Rudolph I HRE (The Kalmar Union) (1278-1282)
Albert I (1282-1308)
Rudolph II (1282-1283)
Rudolph III (1282-1307)
Frederick I (1308-1330)
Leopold I (1308-1326)
Albert II (1330-1358)
Otto I (1330-1339)
Frederick II (1339-1344)
Leopold II (1339-1344)
Rudolph IV (1358-1365)
Albert III (1365-1379)

Albert's three sons divide the duchy (the title of Archduke was a 1359 fabrication which was only confirmed in 1513 when Austria was reunited). The death of his cousins without heirs allows Sigismund, Duke of Inner Austria, to reunite the lands over the course of his rule.

The Kings of Bohemia are usually dated from 1212 when the title was confirmed by the Sicilian Bull, though an illustrious line of Dukes stretches back to the early 9th century. Previous dukes did claim the title of king however it was not a hereditary title.

The death of Henry of Prague before he can reach his majority gives the Bohemian magnates an opportunity to break with Luxembourg rule. Maximilian II of Austria is elected.

William Scrots 001 (1606-1618)

During the Bohemian Revolt which began the Fifty Years War the Protestant Bohemian nobles rejected the Austrian archduke and with Schmalkaldic support elected William-George, Prince of Oldenburg as the new Protestant King of Bohemia. His rule lasted only until the Catholic Empire marshals its forces and reconquers Bohemia.

Throughout the Fifty Years War the Austrian archdukes continue to use the title of 'King of Bohemia' though none are ever crowned in Prague and officially the throne is vacant. The Treaty of Copenhagen in 1668 returns Bohemia to Luxembourg rule, a sop to offset their loss of Brandenburg and a snub to Austria.

While John IV is on his apparent deathbed (he recovers) the Prague Diet decides they will not accept the reactionary and widely despised Prince Charles of Utrecht as his successor. The nobles reach out to various parties but running out of time and options invite Austria to retake the crown. Archduke (and Emperor) Rudolph III is confirmed as king after the brief and indecisive War of Bohemian Succession.
