Monday 19 March 2018 | 5 p.m. | Lobkowicz-Rožmberk Room | Lobkowicz Palace
This time, Soňa Černocká, Curator of The Lobkowicz Library & Archives, will present the content of letter between husband and wife Zdeněk Vojtěch Lobkowicz and Polyxena Lobkowicz.
Zdeněk Vojtěch Popel, 1st Prince Lobkowicz (1568–1628) and his wife Polyxena, born Pernštejn (1566–1642) represented the most prominent aristocratic couple of early 16th century political and public life in Bohemia. The reciprocal correspondence of the couple (which includes numerous comments on political situation), represents an extremely interesting source of information on the period climate, including many details on particular events and persons. The letters also give us an opportunity to peek into the administration of the family properties as well as the privacy of a couple full of mutual love and respect
