Die Bedeutung der Falken(-jagd) für das Hofleben im Mittelalter

Anna Lena Eberl

Abstract


This paper deals with the significance of falcons at medieval courts using the example of Albrecht III Achilles, Elector of Brandenburg. In a letter to his son-in-law Eberhard II, Duke of Württemberg, he has to deny the delivery of some falcons as Albrecht himself has no appropriate ones at his court. This paper examines, why Falcons were important as valuable objects and gifts. It is discussed how falconry could influence prestige and politics in the Middle Ages.
