On April 25th 2018, Natalia Nowakowska (Principal Investigator 'The Jagiellonians Project') gave a special lecture at the Weston Library, University of Oxford: 'The Polish -Italian Royal Wedding of 1518 - Dynasty, Memory and Language'.
In 1518, the Milanese Neapolitan princess Bona Sforza travelled to Krakow to marry King Sigismund I of Poland, in one of the most celebrated weddings seen in Renaissance Central Europe. The wedding is remembered today as bringing Italian food and culture to Poland. However, this lecture marking the 500th anniversary of the wedding, explores how it also generated new kinds of political ideas and language.
The lecture is now available to watch in its entirety here
