This study offers an explication of the circumstances under which Prague was incorporated after the election of Ferdinand I as King of Bohemia and Hungary 1526 into the emerging Habsburg monarchy, and an outline of its initial economic and political potential. The prime focus is on theses that characterise on the basis of the existing literature and newly explored sources the status of the capital of the Kingdom of Bohemia within the emerging network of Habsburg rulers’ residences in Central Europe. In the last part the author attempts to outline the main features of the development of Prague in 1526–1564 as a consequence of the ruler’s influence on the city and his court’s sojourn in it.
