The Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania

Chapter 35 begins with Sigismund August’s clandestine marriage to Barbara Radziwiłłówna, his close alliance with the Radziwiłłs, and the subsequent conflict with the Polish nobility. It considers the origins and impact of the movement for the execution of the laws, which sought that the laws against the alienation of the royal domain passed in 1504 should be used to examine subsequent illegal alienations to the magnate elite by the king. It shows how the execution movement adopted the Polish incorporationist interpretation of the union and, on account of the large amounts of taxation raised by the Sejm to support the Lithuanian war against Muscovy, demanded that the union treaties be ‘executed’, and Lithuania’s incorporation into Poland be implemented.

Keywords:   Sigismund August, Barbara Radziwiłłówna, clandestine marriage, the Radziwiłłs, royal domain, execution of union
