The International Reputation and Self-Representation of Hungarian Noblemen in the Seventeenth Century

Nóra G. Etenyi, Monika Barget

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


in the seventeenth century, hungarian resistance to habsburg rule fostered considerable media output in the holy roman empire as well as in other regions of europe. Newspapers, stand-alone pamphlets, and extensive historiographical treatises in multiple languages covered the rise and fall of hungarian leader ferenc iii nádasdy and the rebellion of protestant nobleman imre thököly. The chapter analyzes this rich iconography in the context of complex seventeenth-century european alliance systems and aims to shed light on the interplay of government-driven communication and a growing independent news sector.
