because they moved into his mouse. With his help the young poet
continued writing poems and eventually became a very famous figure of
her time. She also put substantial effort in trying to convince
Rudolf II to give her back the confiscated properties of her step-
father. But with only a little success - 1000 tolars in 1602.
I thought Rafal Prinke had established that Kelley's widow sold his Fumberk
estate (which Rudolph had previously given to Kelley) to Michael
Sendivogius - but this would surely be exactly what Rudolph would have
Which of the two is correct?
