Between 1345-1425 the Bavarian counts of Holland, Zeeland and Hainaut resided regularly at the Binnenhof complex in The Hague, maintaining a middle-sized court. In the Middle Ages it was necessary for every prince to consolidate his position through material representation. Anne-Maria van Egmond focuses on the totality of luxury objects and images employed to create the image of a competent prince as conveyed to his peers and subjects. She uses historical financial records to reconstruct these collections.
