The article under review is from the newspaper “Gazeta.ua” entitled as “At the court of “non-crowned king of Ukraine” the guests were amused by the gormandizer”. The author of the article is Petro Kolomiets.

The main idea of the article is the story of life of Ostroh Prince Vasyl-Constantine.

The author starts by telling the readers that the favorite residences of Ostroh Prince Vasyl-Constantine were castles in Ostroh city and Dunby in Volyn that is now local center of Rivne region. The author also informs the reader that the at the beginning of 17th century in the biggest tower of family castle of Ostroh princes, one of the richest magnates of the country prince Vasyl-Constantine was dying in a company of newly arrived doctors and local sorcerers.

The article dwells upon story of live of the Prince. He lived a long life and was at the threshold of 82 year. The old magnate has been fighting with death for several years already. The author informs that the balls held earlier were forgotten now. Previously balls were usually finished with dinners. The table was served in the Walling tower for the family and close friends. Sometimes the prince made dinner parties, to where all gentries were invited. The guests were amused by gormandizer that was specially used for this purpose. At the dinner he ate such big amount of food that the fat gentry, who cannot be blamed for the absence of appetite, were greatly surprised by it.

The author concentrates around servicing of the dinner parties at that time: up to 12 changes were serviced. There were a lot of foreign flavours and wines at the table. The rest of food, which were not eaten, was given to servants. The dinners of Ostroh princes were serviced by up to 800-2000 servants.

The article emphasized that Prince Vasyl-Constantine was important figure in Ukrainian history. He held correspondences with the intellectuals, hierarchs of orthodox, catholic and protestant churches of his time. The author points out that the price had authority and popularity among his population, especially because of his devotion. He was able to cite religious psalms and hymns.

The article dwells upon members of family of Ostroh Prince. His wife Sofia was from the Polish magnate family of Tarnovskiy. They have three sons – Yanush (1554-1620), Constantine (died in 1588), Oleksandre (1571-1603) and two daughters – Elizabeth (died in 1599) and Catherine (died in 1579).

The author stresses that the contemporaries suggested that both Constantine and Oleksandre were poisoned as they died after visit of one and the same gentry man. Yanush the last son of Prince died when he was 66, so his death didn’t look as untimely one. After his death the property was passed to women of his family and was lost some time later. One of the granddaughters of Vasyl-Constantine has passed the most of property to different catholic monk orders. Some part was given to the polished Zaslavskiy princes.

The article draws the conclusion that Prince Vasyl-Constantine didn’t favoured Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth. In 1562 the Great Lithuanian Princedom was in war with Moscow Kingdom. The Lithuanians appealed to polish people for the help. But they set a condition: the great Lithuanian Princedom must unite itself with Polish kingdom into one state. The idea of union was supported by many aristocrats and small gentries. In 1569 Lublin union was concluded resulted in established of unified Polish-Lithuanian state named Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth.
