branch office Brno
“We have been making Sigismund of Luxemburg's charters available in Brno since 2011. The feeling from discovering new sources is unique, because I'm still finding a number of Sigismund's charters, for instance in the transcripts from the 16th and 17th centuries, which evidently no-one has touched since then. On some occasions these are charters which can change the interpretation of Sigismund's rule in an interesting way.”Petr Elbel

Our research objectives
The Regesta Imperii branch office Brno was established in 2011 and is the newest department of the Regesta Imperii, as well as being the first offshoot outside of Austria and Germany. It focuses on archive research and the edited publishing of the charters and documents of Sigismund, the last Luxemburg, Roman Emperor, and Hungarian, Czech and Croat king. (*1368 – †1437).
