The commoners

I am Emerik and I am dressed as all commoners dressed in that period, simply, without much decoration. My shirt and blazer have neither accessories nor lace; this is worn by counts only. The colour are simple – brown and white. I help the counts and the members of their families. In return, I get accommodation and food in the castle, as well as wage. There is a lot of work to be done, outside the castle, too. Our counts own 18,444 acres of plough fields, 419 acres of meadows, 69 acres of vineyard, 1,321 acres of pasture...

My name is Julijana and I am Emerik’s wife. I help in the count’s kitchen and this is why I’m wearing a simple hat. My entire clothes are simple and plain.
