Abstract

The paper is examining the efforts to organize the host for the 1396 Nicopolis crusade, focusing the financial backgro und, innovations in military administration and personnel and reforms in defence doctrines. It discusses of Sigismund of Luxemburg’s (1387 - 1437) work in frontier defence and measures to secure funds. The king has been recently treated negatively, seen as a n inadequate leader who did not lead expeditions. Yet he was able to prevent a national bloodshed and did gain successes by garrisoning castles with standing forces.
