Ordinary Sejm in Cracow. 1531-1532.
The Sejm was convoked in October 1531 for December 6th of the same year. Pre-Sejm Sejmiks were held in November 1531. Cracow was the chosen venue in light of planned warfare and the King’s military presence. Following a few days’ delay, Sejm debates commenced on December 10th 1531. Matters of Mazovian taxation were raised. The issue of vassals’ rights to participate in royal elections was discussed as well in the wake of an intervention by Albrecht, Duke of Prussia. The Sejm concluded on January 20th 1532.
