The Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava and the Historical Museum of the City of Budapest will mark the 500th anniversary of Queen Mary of Hungary (1505-1558) by hosting a joint exhibition (Budapest, 30 September - 31 December 2005; Bratislava, 2 February - 30 April 2006).

Mary of Hungary was raised in the Netherlands at the court of her imperial grandfather, Maximilian I and in Vienna and Innsbruck. She married Ludwig II and became the Queen of the Hungarian and the Czech Kingdoms. After a dramatic loss of her husband at the Battle of Mohács, she left Central Europe and became the Regent of the Netherlands. The exhibition tells the story of the young queen whose interest in current intellectual and spiritual discussion, music and fine art elevated her to the leading figures of cultural life. The fashionable art of her court is presented through the paintings of Lucas Cranach, Hans Krel and the graphic prints of Albrecht Dürer.
