The name of this corner house in Hradčany originated in the period of emperor Rudolf II, who used to accommodate his varlets here. However, after the original building was affected by a fire, the famous architect Carlo Lurago participated in the early Baroque restoration. By the way, Lurago is also the author of Klementinum. The house has also seen countless different inhabitants – from the socially disadvantaged to children from nursery schools and city clerks, who left the house in 2008. Since then, the historic building has been on a list of empty houses, waiting for its next purpose.
