A bust of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria was unveiled in the East Bohemian village of Pohleď on Saturday. It is the first time a Czech municipality has erected a memorial to the ruler in a century, the news website iDnes.cz reported. The monument, which was initiated by the Society for the Revival of the Czech Monarchy, is near a tree that was planted by local people in 1908 on the 60th anniversary of Franz Joseph I’s coronation.
