The artistic decoration of the Franciscan double monastery of Königsfelden reflects the efforts and aims of Agnes of Habsburg, daughter and ninth child of King Albrecht I (assassinated 1309). Before her father's death, Agnes had been married (1296–1301) to the Árpád King Andrew III of Hungary, but she remained childless. As a widow, she referred to herself as "Agnes, former Queen of Hungary". The Königsfelden treasure inventory, which Agnes drew up 1357, provides a starting point for examining how Agnes used her wealth to assert her royal identity and reinforce dynastic claims – especially those of the Hungarian Árpád dynasty – by commissioning donations with Árpád family symbols. This article reconstructs the visual interplay between Königsfelden's mobile liturgical furnishings in the monastery church's larger architectural space and its stained-glass pictorial program. Agnes' donations to Königsfelden outlived the monastery church's liturgical rituals and can be interpreted as her extremely longlived offspring – her productive (if not reproductive) contribution to the maintenance and glory of both the Habsburg and Hungarian dynasties.
