The author proceeds with his earlier 1990 contribution ou the complementary examination of the skull of the Czechking and Roman emperor Charles IV. Direct relationship between the injury to the cervical spine and the newlydetected healed fractures of the mandible was established. A strong blow on the king’s chin induced the four-folddislocated fracture of the mandible. Based on our present knowledge of medieval medicine, and especially facialtraumatology an attempt was made to clarify the treatment methods applied in management of the king’s injury.

Key words:
mandibular fracture, cervical spine injury, middle ages facial traumatology.
