Kežmarok a Zápoľskí

Kucharská, Veronika

The author deals with the relationship of the significant noble family of Zápolyas (Zápoľský, Szapolyai) with the town of Kežmarok (Késmárk, Käsmark). She considers the period when the town was administrated by Emeric and Stephen Zápolya, Stephen's widow, Hedwig of Cieszyn, and, for a short period, John Zápolya. They started to administer Kežmarok before 1464, when they were ordered by the king to build a castle beneath the Tatras. The Zápolya family began to build the castle in the town. Later, there were conflicts between the burghers and castellan of Zápolya castle.

Vzťah uhorských kráľovien k svojim venným mestám v stredoslovenskej banskej oblasti

Kočí, Martina

The aim of the study is to make clear the relationship of the Hungarian queens to their dowry towns – dowry estates that originated as institutions by the end of the first half of the 15th century. At first, they were supposed to serve as a source of income for widowed queens; later, the endowment of a town became an after-wedding tradition. The study focuses on the royal estates in the central areas of present day Slovakia, especially the mining towns that were amongst the most profitable towns in the Kingdom of Hungary.
