Abstract

Session is focused on the functioning of the elites in the small towns of the Teutonic Order State and Royal Prussia from the Middle Ages until the end of the 18th century. The aim is to show the specific role of certain families in the city life, their stabilization on the administrative positions, possible changes and their factors in the long-term perspective. Attention will be also paid to the factors determining affiliation to the elite under Prussian conditions (e.g. financial, legal, social).
