Description My doctoral research focuses on aristocracy in the 19th century. The topic of the domain administration is the centrepiece of my doctoral thesis. The representation, both political and personal, of nobility was related to their economical potential and condition of their estates. The area of my interest is former Estate of Nasavrky in eastern Bohemia under princely family of Auesperg. I am interested in conduct of noble business, management of the domain and approach to the employees. This article deals with my approach to the researching, because it has a lot of obstacles and methodology practically doesn't exist. Investigation depends on volume or character of documents preserved, which are different from one estate to another. In the “Nasavrky Estate Fund” there are materials from different branches of administration as well as books containing information about employees. After the reconstruction of the domain administration, I want to get back to the topic of noble owners and I answer the main questions: which administrative strategy was in place, in which areas showed Auersperg their interests or how the administration of domains had influenced noble representation or political career.
