The details

Richeza of Berg (c. 1095 – 27 September 1125) was the wife of Vladislav I of Bohemia and the Duchess of Bohemia. She was the daughter of count Henry I of Berg and his wife Adelheid of Mochental.
Richeza married Vladislav before 1111; her sister Sophie of Berg married another Přemyslid, Otto II the Black, in 1114. The third sister, Salomea of Berg, married the Duke of Poland Bolesław III Wrymouth in 1115.
In 1125 the dying Vladislav I chose his relative Otto II the Black as his successor, which was also the wish of Vladislav's wife Richeza. Only the intervention of his mother Świętosława changed his mind, and Vladislav reconciled with his brother Soběslav.
After Vladislav's death the disappointed Richeza wanted to move to Zwiefalten monastery, but died on the way on 27 September 1125. She is buried in Kloster Reichenbach am Regen.
