Money «for the remuneration of works and losses» for Krzysztof Zawisza the warden of Minsk and his dispute with the Lithuanian treasury in the first quarter of the 18th century

The article presents the efforts of Krzysztof Zawisza the warden of Minsk to receive the money promised to him by August II. It was a gift from the king to reward the loyalty and service that Zawisza gave to the monarch. It took over 20 years to get the money because Michal Kociell the Lithuanian treasurer was the personal enemy of Zawisza. Nevertheless some part of the promised sum went to his hands. The purpose of the article is to show the conflict over the payment of money, and in this example to show the specificity of political relations in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries. The article is based on archival materials and raises an important topic for the history of the former lands of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
