Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the enthronement of the dukes of Carinthia. Among the authors are numerous researchers of the past of great reputation and outstanding merit, who often sought to solve one of the "key issues of Carinthian history" with commendable erudition and penetration. The two material monuments of the enthronement, the Prince's Stone ( Fürstenstein ) and the Duke's Throne (Herzogstuhl), create problems as the written sources. The enthronement of the dukes of Carinthia was indeed the subject of wide interest long before Paul Puntschart's extensive study from 1899, the first to gather in one place all relevant sources on the enthronement, started a "new era" of research into the ceremony. Steinmann's opinion that the interpolation in the Schwabenspiegel is the youngest source, and that it describes the ceremony as it was performed at the time of the enthronement of Albrecht II and possibly Rudolf IV, is rather unconvincing.

Keywords: Duke's Throne; dukes of Carinthia; enthronement; Prince's Stone; Schwabenspiegel; Steinmann
