Supplemements and Remarks Regarding „Spis urzędników mazowieckich z lat 1341–1462” (On the Margin of Mazowsze Siemowitów (1341–1442). Dzieje polityczne i struktury władzy by Anna Supruniuk)The dissertation by Anna Supruniuk about the political history of the duchy of Mazovia and its political elite discusses the territory ruled by Siemowit III (1341–1381) and his successors: Siemowit IV (to 1426) and Siemowit V (to 1442). Two parts of this study are supplemented by a list of the land and administration officials from 1341–1462, predominantly from West Mazovia. A. Supruniuk did not take into account the role performed by chancellors (court and land) in ducal Mazovia. A specific feature of this province was the fact that the treasury was the domain of the chancellor and the vice–chancellors; at that time, the competence of the chancellor corresponded to that of the vice–treasurer of the Crown. During the fourteenth and fifteenth century land chancellors too were associated with the ducal chancery. Despite the proposed comments and supplements Spis urzędników z lat 1341–1462 continues to be the most complete list of mediaeval land and administration officials of ducal Mazovia. For this reason, the above remarks do not affect the merit of the work, which makes a considerable contribution to studies on the history of fourteenth– and fifteenth–century Mazovia.
