Event description
Virtual research seminar to discuss economic and financial aspects of monarchical rule

About this Event

In monarchies, power, law, finances, and economy are intertwined aspects of the royal household. More than in other economic units, royal households were not only responsible for the income of an individual or a family, but were also connected with the state, and vice versa.

The aim of this research seminar is to discuss research on economic and financial aspects of monarchies and dynasties from antiquity to present day. In particular, the interdependencies of finances, economics and monarchical rule are of interest. The research seminar, furthermore, hopes to encourage further research into this topic, and to enable comparative and interdisciplinary studies between different times and spaces.
