The Zbraslav Chronicle states that under John of Luxembourg Prague experienced a change in the universal demeanour, including the fashion of dress, as well as an increase in the popularity of singing in the manner of Neidhart von Reuental, with the name of the famed German minnesinger having become synonymous with satire (even Master Jan Hus still used the verb "to neidhart", in the sense of "spoofing").
