Abstract

The events in the city of Cheb (Eger) of 25 February 1634 and the assassination of Albert of Wallenstein, Duke of Friedland, Żagań, Głogów and Mecklenburg and general of the imperial army, have always attracted the interest of historians and publicists as well as non-fiction readers. The tragic end of the famed commander of the Thirty Year's War, however, is not the crucial subject of the presented essay. The writer follows the dramatic destiny of the Silesian protagonists of the war who have often been omitted from the literature on Wallenstein. It was in the Silesian Głogów (Glogau) where the fatal decision of high imperial officers to assassinate Wallenstein was passed, while the sad episode itself soon occurred in Opava. The local garrison, commanded by Lieutenant Albrecht Freiberger, rose up against the emperor. The soldiers and burghers took an oath of loyalty to Wallenstein. Two weeks later, the rebellion was crushed and the culprits arrested and punished. During the manipulated process, the Silesian general, Hans Ulrich von Schaffgotsch who did not personally participate in the Opava upbringing, was also charged with treason. He was tortured just because it was his regiment which was present in Opava, and was eventually executed on the basis of fabricated evidence.
