Female, Deceased Person
Who is Biagota?
These coins are considered the oldest type of Přemyslid denar. An inscription can be read on them, BIAGOTACOIIIIX or BIAGOTACOVIIX, meaning BIAGOTA CONIVNX: wife Biagota. Possibly these coins were made on the occasion of marriage, but there is no proof for it.
It is not even sure that Biagota was the mother of all four adult children of Boleslaus I. Her origins are unclear. She could have originated from one of the German states of the Holy Roman Empire or from a Slavic country. Both hypotheses could be right, corresponding to the contemporary practice of European rulers.
