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.
