Habsburg and Jagiellonian dynasties Vladislaus II Jagiello, Emperor Maximilian I, Lands of the Hungarian, and Bohemian Crown, Royal Oratory of Saint Vitus Cathedral in Prague, Heraldic Representation, Coats of Arms, Bosnia, Upper Lusatia, Croatia
The aim of the study is to examine a series of coats of arms of the Hungarian and Bohemian Lands on the late Gothic Royal Oratory of Saint Vitus Cathedral in Prague in the Central European context. An analysis of coats of arms from the Lands of the Hungarian Crown has resulted in three new findings. On the one hand, contrary to previous concepts, the creation of the coats of arms did not took place in the first half of the 1490s, but probably in the 1510s–1520s, perhaps resulting from the Bohemian coronation of Mary of Hungary on 6 June 1522. On the other hand, the coat of arms of Upper Lusatia, placed on the balustrade, could have replaced the similar coat of arms of the Kingdom of Croatia only during an erroneous restoration attempt at the end of the 19th century. Finally, the coats of arms of the Lands of the Hungarian Crown on the Royal Oratory were taken over from the heraldic representation of Emperor Maximilian I in Innsbruck instead of those of the Jagiellonian dynasty in Prague or Buda.
