Ileana Lobkowicz

G3 House of Lobkowicz
Writer and storyteller

Ileana Lobkowicz is a writer and storyteller who grew up in Prague, Czech Republic, captivated by the city’s magic, history, and lore. After graduating from the International School of Prague, she attended Boston College where she managed the university’s online magazine and received her BA in Philosophy in 2019. 

The roots of her inspiration come from her 700-year-old Bohemian noble family whose successive generations have played an influential role in European politics and society, especially as patrons of the arts. The family’s art collections and properties were confiscated twice, first in 1939 by the Nazis and again after 1948 by the Communists, forcing the Lobkowiczes to flee their homeland. After the Velvet Revolution of 1989, the family returned to then Czechoslovakia and began the restitution process to reclaim, reassemble, and restore their lost cultural heritage, permanently opening these previously hidden treasures to the public, for the first time in history. 

House of Lobkowicz shares 700 years of Bohemian inspiration through five unique cultural heritage sites, offering full-service event design and hospitality management, diverse cultural tourism experiences, and the Lobkowicz Collections—one of Europe’s oldest and finest private art collections. House of Lobkowicz oversees the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague Castle, Nelahozeves Castle and the adjacent Antonín Dvořák Birth House, Roudnice Castle, and Střekov Castle.

Since returning to Prague, Ileana has been deeply involved in House of Lobkowicz. The scope of her work encompasses a broad spectrum—from branding and strategic development to writing and curating content across House of Lobkowicz’s communication outlets. She believes in the power of storytelling to connect, transport, and inspire. As a creative steward of stories, she is using her ancestral heritage to serve as a bridge between the past and the future. Ileana is also focused on writing and publishing a family memoir, and developing her own storytelling platform which will share vignettes about people, places, and food (for thought).
