For the first time, a large multi-volume edition work will reflect practices of the monarchy in the 19th century.
In international perspective, this edition of primary sources presents previously unpublished archival documents for further research. The Prussian example illustrates the strategies and reactions of European monarchies when they had to adapt to a changing society. Effective integration achievements as well as their limits become tangible. The first volumes are focusing on the different functions of court members, on deciders and the forms of decision making at the court. Other volumes will highlight e.g. the performative practices at the Prussian court as they were shaped in competition processes and by cultural transfer from neighboring European countries.
