Languages of publication
This case study analyses a thematically coherent set of archival records of the economic activities undertaken within the Bohemian estate of Nové Město nad Metují in the mid-16th century under the Styrian noble house of Stubenberg. The research focuses on the principles of governance under the challenging conditions of the considerable territorial distance between Styria and Bohemia, on the Lord’s role and the responsibilities of the local clerical staff in the governance of his estate, as well as on its economic model and performance. The summarized facts illustrate the significance of the Styrian noble family’s investment in purchasing the estate in Bohemia which also gradually formed a proprietary and economic platform for the Stubenbergs’ further penetration into the structures of the Bohemian nobility.
