NICHOLAS OF SZÉCSÉNY AND SALGÓ – AN EXCEPTIONAL MAN AT THE COURT OF SIGISMUND OF LUXEMBOURG (A CONTRIBUTION TO THE COURT CULTURE AND FUNCTIONING OF THE COURT OF THE KING OF HUNGARY AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 15TH CENTURY)
Languages of publication
The study is a reconstruction of the life of a Hungarian magnate active at the Hungarian court of Sigismund of Luxembourg, Nicholas of Szécsény and Salgó. It is also a sounding into life at the court of the King of Hungary. As a result of his eccentric and exceptional character Nicholas of Salgó became a victim of the hatred of some of Sigismund’s courtiers. This led to a plot, due to which he was condemned and exiled from Hungary. He spent the last years of his life in Venice. The documents in the Venetian archives concerning Nicholas’ possessions, which were not studied up to now, provide substantial additional evidence on the Venetian exile of this Hungarian baron, his eccentric way of life and exceptional education.
