Kolowrat-Krakowský go back to the historical form of their name

JUDr. Dominika Kolowrat-Krakowská, Maximilian Kolowrat-Krakowský and Francesca Kolowrat-Krakowská have decided to bring the sound of their last name into keeping with the historical tradition of the family name. The correct orthography of the name includes two „w’s“. Due to the negligence of state officials during the establishment of the Communist regime, the name was constantly stated inaccurately as Kolowrat-Krakovský and that was the form which the registry offices used in 1989.

This is a return to the roots of the old Bohemian family, which was for centuries known as Krakowský z Kolowrat.

The registry office has accepted this change at the family‘s request and so the family has returned to its historical family name Kolowrat-Krakovský.
