Xena Longenová (3 August 1891 – 23 May 1928), born Polyxena Marková, was a Czech actress, best known on the Prague stage. She also made one silent film, Prach a broky (1926).

Early life

Polyxena Marková was born in Strakonice, the daughter of actor Antonín Marek (1862-1938), and the sister of actors Vladimir and Adolf Marek.


Longenová was a popular stage actress, often appearing with her actor husband in Prague cabarets, but also in Paris, Berlin, Brno, and Ljubljana.[1][2] She created the lead role in her husband's adaptation of Egon Erwin Kisch's The Ascension of Tonka Šibenice.[3] She appeared in one silent film, a comedy, Prach a broky (1926, now lost).[4]

Personal life

She married writer, artist, and actor Emil Artur Longen [cz] (born Emil Pittermann) in 1910.[5][6] Longenová, unhappy in her marriage and using cocaine and morphine, died by suicide in 1928, aged 36 years, in Prague.[6] Her niece was actress Heda Marková.

E. A. Longen wrote a novel based on his wife's story, The Actress. Franta Sauer wrote a biography of the Longens, Emil Artur Longen a Xena (1936).[7][8]
