František Kožík

(1909 - ) Writer

František Kožík is one of the most significant writers of the Czech historical novel. Several times he sought literary inspiration in the times of the last Rosenbergs in South Bohemia. In a historical drama called "Krumlov Romance" he recorded the last years of the rule of Wilhelm von Rosenberg and Peter Wok von Rosenberg. This material was also compiled as a novel in "The Third Night". This theatre play was very successful also on the Open-air Theater with Revolving Auditorium in the Český Krumlov castle garden.
