He was the eldest son of King Vratislaus II and Adelaide, daughter of Andrew I of Hungary.
Bretislaus also wished to kill the elective principle of succession and replace it with a type of seniorate as conceptualised by Bretislaus I: the eldest prince of the reigning family would hold Bohemia as sovereign over the entire state while the younger scions of the dynasty ruled as territorial dukes over the regions of Moravia.
Bretislaus was assassinated by his adversaries at the hunting lodge of Zbecno in western Prague on December 22, 1100.
