Description

Following the death of Libuse, Vlasta leads a band of women against the male forces of Libuse widower, Premysl. Sarka, Vlasta's lieutenant, entraps a band of armed men led by Ctirad by tying herself to a tree and claiming that the rebel maidens tied her there and put a horn and a jug of mead out of reach to mock her. Ctirad believes her story and unties her from the tree, whereupon she pours the mead for the men as a celebratory thank you gift. Little do the men know that Sarka and the maidens have put a sleeping potion into the mead. When all the men have fallen asleep, Sarka blows the horn as a signal for the rebel maidens to come out of their hiding places and join her in slaughtering the men. She is captured and defeated along with the rest of the army soon afterward.

Šárka can be obtained from gold and silver chests.

Background

Šárka first appeared in the traditional Bohemian tale of the Maidens' War.

In the 9th century AD, the Czech queen Libuše assembled a royal gyard composed entirely of young women. The captain of the guard was a renowned female Czech warrior, Vlasta. After Libuše's death, Vlasta led a troop of women ("The Maidens") against the patriarchal forces of Libuše's husband. Šárka served as Vlasta's deputy commander.

According to legend, Šárka set a trap by tying herself to a tree. When found by the enemy soldiers, she claimed that the Maidens had tied her there. After winning their trust, Šárka added a sleeping potion to a jug of mead and poured a cup for each man as a sign of thanks. Once the men were fast asleep, she signaled the resf of the Maidens to come out of hiding and slaughter the men.
