Fluminensia: Journal for Philological Research
The national significance of Conspiracy in which Fran Krsto Frankopan was involved, its European context and situation with respect to potential alliance with the Turks as well as the arrangement of other systems-of-goverment in the 17th century influenced the ascent of contributions to biographical and bibliographical facts about life and work of Fran Krsto Frankopan. Historiographic contributions highlighted the historical status of his family name, discussed the genealogical facts in a
... al facts in a broader sense of the family origin (Roman, Croatian, Friulian, Molise Frankopan) and referred to his connections with the Barberini family, his Roman heritage and the title of Marguess of Nemi. Over a century of research forty autographs of Fran Krsto Frankopan have been found, which is a negligible number to the overall documentation of Conspiracy. Although the researchers dealed with the Croatian and larger European archives, they overlooked materail in the private archives of Friulian Frankopan family which consequently led to genealogical (Orfeo Frankopan), cultural-literary (the orientation of Fran Krsto to northeastern Italy) and archival disagreemet (fund in Archivio Frangipane, Joannis).
