Royalty. Also known as Katharine of Luxembourg. She was born as the second daughter of Karl IV and his first wife Blanche de Valois in Prague. When she was ten years old she was married to Duke Rudolf. After his death in 1365 she returned to Prague where her father married her to Otto IV of Wittelsbach, Margrave of Brandenburg. While Otto returned to his territories after the wedding she stayed in Prague until 1373. It seems that this marriage was not a happy one and stayed childless throughout the thirteen years it lasted. Because Otto had no heir, his territories fell to Karl after his death, due to a contract he had singed in 1363. She was a widow again at the age of 37 and returned to Austria where she lived until her own death and was buried beside her first husband.
