Elizabeth married Frederick in about the year of 1157. In 1179, Elizabeth served as regent dyring the absence of her spouse and as such successfully conducted the defense of Prague toward her brother-in-law Sobeslav II. She appeared herself on the battle field with clerical signs on her banner. In 1184, she repeated the very same fight toward the very same opponent and was again victorious. In 1189, however, she was forced to surrender to Conrad II.
