Hah! Well, I'm Canadian, then. Everyone loves Canada. Or Dutch, if you aren't so sure about Canadians either.

...the introduction date of the Bohemians 830 AD refers to the Moravians as their more powerful neighbor in the east. The Bohemians were mentioned as allies. After several raids of Carlemagne the Bohemians had to pay tribut from 806 AD. From that time the Bohemians supported the Karolingians against the pagan Slavs named Abodrites or Wilzen (Wilzians).
About 906 AD the Bohemian Duke Vrastislav married Drahomira Stodor, a pagan Slav princesse of the Helelli (Stodorians) tribe, in present days Brandenburg. She is known for the murder of her mother-in-law Ludmila of Bohemia by hired assassins.
In the years between 906-925 the Magyars(Hungarians) conquered the great Moravia. The Bohemian dukes conquered much of later Polish territory in the south. In 1003 AD the Polish King Boleslaw Chrobry concuered Bohemia for a few years.
The list of the Bohemian Slav ends 1105 AD. The Bohemian kingdom became 1185 AD a member of the holy Roman empire. The Bohemian king was one of the 7 electors to nominate the next king of the holy Roman empire. So a Bohemian army after 1185 AD used the same troops like a german HRE army. A Bohemian army of 1105-1185 AD could alternatively contain the same troops as the feudal German princes and clerics 1106-1320 AD with a compulsory Hungarian horse archers element, without pikemen, with Mercenary heavy foot (Poles)...
...Hanta Yo!..
