The most prized treasure of the Czech people is the crown, sceptre and orb of King Wenceslas. Made of gold, set with huge numbers of rubies, emeralds, pearls and sapphires, the treasure lies in Prague, protected by an armoured door with seven different locks and a papal bull of AD 1346 which calls down the wrath of God on any man who dared to remove it. Both Hitler and Heydrich, the Nazi Protector of Czechoslovakia, were tempted by it. But sometimes, as the Czechs say, the wrath of God mingles with the justice of man.
