In this work, we report the first relativistic density functional theory calculations using relativistic local hybrid functionals. Besides outlining the construction of relativistic local hybrid exchange within a two-component-relativistic framework based on the picture-change transformation of the density matrix and a recently developed relativistic iso-orbital indicator, we investigate the influence of two-electron-relativistic effects, using relativistic functional ingredients in local hybrid functionals, and the choice of the exchange-correlation functional on atomic 1s core orbital energies of light and heavier elements. Finally, we discuss the applicability of relativistic 1s core orbital shifts for the relativistic correction of non-relativistic 1s core excitation energies.
