The Treasure of Środa Śląska: Royal Marriages

Oct 1 - Dec 30 2022       Pl. Powstańców Warszawy 5
This is part of a cyclical series of exhibits centred around the incredible Treasure of Środa - a priceless hoard of gold and silver coins, gold jewellery and precious stones that was inexplicably discovered during construction in the town of Środa in 1985. Although no one can be sure, most archaeologists agree that the items were hidden some time in the mid-14th century by a wealthy Jewish banker, Mojżesz, who had gotten them from King Charles IV of the House of Luxembourg in exchange for his financial support. In addition to presenting some of the treasures, this exhibit provides context surrounding the history, political importance and the ceremonies of the royal weddings of Charles IV with Blanche of Valoise, and John of Luxembourg with Elizabeth of Přemyslid. It also reflects on the circumstances of the House of Luxembourg ascending to the throne of Bohemia, and the role played by their royal brides, as well as events and ceremonies linked with royal weddings in Europe during the Middle Ages.
