Seven Weeks War 
The Prussian-Austrian War, which swept through Czech territory in the summer of 1866, significantly affected many villages in northern and eastern Bohemia. A large number of monuments and type crosses, which were built in response to these events, can be found to this day. A memorial cross on a sandstone plinth in the village of Rudoltice in Bohemia can be included among the forgotten and partially damaged ones. Let's follow its turbulent history and the reason for the construction together in the following lines. A brief outline of the then war situation finds ourselves in the period after the Battle of Hradec Králové and imagines several minor equestrian collisions on the Czech-Moravian border.
In the War of 1866, Austria and its German allies, on the one hand, and Prussia and its German allies, together with Italy, on the other, faced each other. Although the decisive clash took place on the northern battlefield, near Hradec Králové, the naval clash that took place on the island of Lissa ( now Vis ) on the southern battlefield was more important for Austrian-Italian relations than the battle of Hradec Králové.
