Title: Osobnosť Isabelly d´Este Gonzaga nahliadaná cez prizmu dobového kontextu a listovej korešpondencie

(Isabella d’Este Gonzaga’s personality through the prism of contemporary context and letter correspondence)

Abstract: Isabella d’Este (May 17, 1474 in Ferrara, Italy – February 13, 1539 in Mantua, Italy) was an important female protagonist of the Italian Renaissance, often referred as the “Lady of the Renaissance”, “Daughter of Humanism”, “the First World Lady”. This study aims to bring closer the ruler who influenced (especially Italian) history in diplomacy and politics, but was also a major figure in the collection of art and patronage of authors such as Titian, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello Sanzio and others. The study reflects the period context and at the same time looks at the importance of the Renaissance female intellectual through the prism of her personal and public correspondence available in the Italian state archives (Mantova, Ferrara, etc.), pointing to the growing importance and interest in digitized authentic materials.
