Description The study approximates two geophysical investigations of sites in Oradea, Romania, and in the church of St Thomas in Brno, which connects the connection with the Luxembourg dynasty of the 14th and 15th centuries. Emperor Sigismund of Luxembourg was buried in Oradea and, among others, also the Moravian Margrave and Sigismund’s uncle John Henry at St Thomas. In neither case is the exact location of the tombs of these monarchs known. The presented study summarizes the research to date at both locations, findings from current ground-penetrating radar research, and suggests other possible research procedures for pinpointing the location of the two “lost” tombs. In the case of Sigismund of Luxemburg, archival research tracing the unknown remains sent to Vienna in 1755 seems promising. In the case of John Henry, future research should focus on the area of the Marian Chapel, i.e., one of the oldest parts of the Church of St Thomas, which has not yet been systematically investigated.
