Summary/Abstract: The study is concerned with the charter of privileges granted to Bratislava in 1291. The introduction gives a formal analysis of the document, and attempts to solve the question of interpolation into the text. It offers an interpretation of why the text of the original document from 1291 differs from later royal confirmations. The article traces the views on the charter of privileges in previous historiography and the circumstances in which it was issued by King Andrew III. The conclusion compares individual provisions of the charter with other charters issued in the 13th century.
