Description: One of the best known and most frequently depicted saints in Bohemia was born around the year 1345 to acfamily of descendants of German settlers. According to legend, he was the confessor of the king's wife Sophia. Because of disputes with the Archbishop of Wenceslas IV, the king had the closest collaborators of the Archibishop arrested, including John of Nepomuk. Despite the cruel torture, John did not reveal the confessional secret. He was then bound and thrown from Charles Bridge into the Vltava.
