MARITAL TIES OF RAFAL OF GOLUCHÓW FROM THE WIENIAWA CLAN (FIRST HALF OF THE 15TH C.)
The paper presents the outcome of genealogical research into marital relationships of Rafal of Goluchów, the 'subpincerna' of Poznan (1426-1436), and subsequently the 'subcamerarius' of Kalisz (1436-1442). The research results supplement the previous state of knowledge about the marriages contracted by Rafal of Goluchów, and help to establish that instead of three he had four wives; moreover, determine the origin of each of them. His first wife was Katarzyna (Katherine), a daughter of Janusz Furman of Mchów and Niezamysl, of the Doliwa clan, the second - a daughter of Moscic of Steszew, of the Lodzia clan, whose name is unknown, the third - Malgorzata (Margaret) a daughter of Jan of Czeszewo, of the Zareba clan, the fourth - Elzbieta (Elizabeth) a daughter of Jan of Powiercie, of the Lazeki clan. Among the motives of marital selection, the financial status of candidates played a major role: three wives were heiresses of landed properties; one brought a substantial financial dowry owing to the repayment of estates inherited from her father and mother. Also, the marital relationships studied, provide evidence that they were made up on the basis of the existing family ties.
