Languages of publication
The paper is concerned with the activity of the Economic Council (Consilium Oeconomicum) in Prešov. It was the highest body for the economic administration in the part of the Kingdom of Hungary controlled by the Uprising of Francis II Rákóczi. It was established by a decision of parliament at Ónod in 1707, and gradually took over most of the responsibilities of a previously united office. The study deals with the main tasks of the administration, its activities, fulfilment of functions in relation to the state, its apparatus and the army, relationship to the prince, senate and leading representatives of the country, development of the personal composition of the council, which was also the highest representative body of the county nobility on the state level, responsibilities within the office and the institutions subordinate to it, especially the offices for collecting thirtieths and the administration of the chamber lordships. The council’s work is traced on the basis of archive documents up to the end of its activity at the end of 1710, when it lost the ability to fulfil its role as a result of a plague epidemic, advance of hostile armies and the general breakdown of the economy. The Court Economic Council took over the function of the highest office for the economic administration in the Kingdom of Hungary.
