Abstract

Historians of the Balkans and England rarely look towards each other for comparative perspectives. These sessions look to open up new avenues for understanding the nobility and the state in these regions on the borders of Europe in the later Middle Ages. This session will look at the role of the nobility within the regions and their interactions with the State.
