BiographyEdit

In 1390, Diviš gained control of Talmberk Castle [cs]. The castle was soon after besieged by Havel Medek of Valdek, who conquered Talmberk and captured Diviš. Diviš was imprisoned for seven years before the provincial courts declared Havel's seizure illegal, and Diviš was able to ransom himself and reclaim the castle.[2][3] In 1401, he moved to Prague as burgrave of Prague Castle.[4] Diviš died sometime in 1415.[3] His son, Oldřich of Talmberk, succeeded him as Lord of Talmberk.[5]

In popular cultureEdit

Sir Divish of Talmberg, a character in the 2018 video game Kingdom Come: Deliverance, is based on Diviš. His sons Oldřich, Vilém, and Mikuláš are also referenced in game.[6]
