'Dočkalová M, Eliášová H, Dvořák D, Makovec P, 2001: Some of the Major Pathological and Traumatic Findings in the Moravian Luxembourgs (Prokop and Jost of Luxembourg). Anthropologie (Brno) 39, 1: 79-84'.
Last year, great attention was paid to the important anniversary of 650 years of the Luxembourgs' rule in Moravia. The City Museum of Brno organised in 2000 an exhibition dealing with the historic evaluation of the House of Luxembourg contribution and impact to the constitution of Moravian history and Czech statehood. One year earlier, anthropological-medical research of skeleton remains of two members of the ruling royal family was carried out - the brothers Jost and Prokop of Luxembourg (Dočkalová 1999, Cejnková 2001). The research was made by the Anthropos Institute - Moravian Museum in Brno, in cooperation with the Criminalistic Institute of Prague. The skeleton remains of Luxembourg brothers manifested identical genetic features, specific and pathological changes typical of the royal lineage dynasty.
