Chapter Summary

The epilogue of the love story between Frederick II, Count of Cilli, and Veronica of Desenice, marked as it is by two murders, the persecution and imprisonment of the two lovers, and the conflict between father and son hatred had a strong echo in the Slovene drama because of its tragic nature, moral and social charge. The only place where Herman, Count of Cilli, could have accused and persecuted the noble woman Veronica, would have been the court for the privileged classes - the Landschranne or nobility's court. The supra-regional rise of the house of Cilli in the first half of the 15th century however undoubtedly owed most to the close, long-year ties Herman II had woven with the king of Hungary, Sigismund of Luxemburg, Emperor Charles IV's son. Rudolf I of Habsburg had earlier pawned the Land of Carniola to Meinhard of Tyrol and Gorizia in 1279.
