|"The Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory and Identity in Central Europe is a major 5-year research project (2013-18), funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant and based at the History Faculty, University of Oxford.
The Jagiellonians were one of the most important dynasties in Renaissance Europe, ruling lands which constitute no fewer than 14 present-day states. This was a royal dynasty which for two centuries flourished – paradoxically - in the elective monarchies of Central Europe. It has been heavily mythologised, eulogised, criticised and argued over ever since in those lands, though the Jagiellonians remain little known in the English-speaking world."
We would welcome your comments and questions on the Jagiellonians project.
