After the defeat of the Hussite armies at Lipany in 1434, Jan Roháč of Dubá goes to Tábor and then to castle Sion, from where he intends to struggle against the Emperor Sigismund's succession to the Bohemian throne. Even the priest Jan Rokycana, representative of the moderate Hussite wing which is prepared to accept Sigismund, doesn't manage to dissuade Roháč from his rebellion. Sigismund promises concessions to the Utraquists and becomes the King of Bohemia in 1436. Against Roháč, entrenched in Sion, he sends Hungarian Cumans' regiments and increases the terror against the rebelling people of Prague. Jan Rokycana joins the people. The battle between the Hussites and Cumans is severe. Many Czech Brethren die in it, and so does Roháč's daughter Ludmila. Jan Roháč is captured and hanged together with his followers. Their execution provokes such a strong revolt against Sigismund that the frightened King escapes from the country. Roháč's struggle was not in vain - the Czech people turn to the Polish king to take the Czech crown for himself or for his son.
