The article examines a particular aspect of the 14th-century Hungarian manuscript known as Chronicon pictum. The series of kings and knights that appear in the miniatures of the codex are examined in comparison with other European cases, documented not only in manuscripts, but also in the wall paintings of various late medieval kingdoms, to try to identify the reasons for this staging. It cannot be excluded that in Hungary there were galleries of portraits of kings or ancestors in the public rooms of Angevin castles, as was later to occur under the rule of King Matthias Corvinus in the 15th century.

Abstract

The article examines a particular aspect of the 14th-century Hungarian manuscript known as Chronicon pictum. The series of kings and knights that appear in the miniatures of the codex are examined in comparison with other European cases, documented not only in manuscripts, but also in the wall paintings of various late medieval kingdoms, to try to identify the reasons for this staging. It cannot be excluded that in Hungary there were galleries of portraits of kings or ancestors in the public rooms of Angevin castles, as was later to occur under the rule of King Matthias Corvinus in the 15th century.
