Court of the queen dowagers Barbara of Cilli and Joanna of Rožmitál in Mělník
Languages of publication
The study summarizes the results of the previous research of a residential court that was created by the Dowager Queens Barbora Celská and Johana of Rožmitál at the Castle in the Dowry Town of Mělník. It describes the clerical and representative components of a residential courtyard headed by a court marshal and a court hofmister, reveals and compares the activity of the Mělník‘s office of both dowager queens and shows the court as an administrative center. The main difficulty for the court was the lack of financial resources, which was easier for Dowager Queen Johana to cope, despite her much greater political engagement.
