This issue celebrates the Curonian Kings, part of the Latvian nation who have managed to safeguard their personal freedom and independence for centuries.

The story of the Curonian kings is an extraordinary page in Latvian history. The tradition of their freedom, established already in the agreement of 1230 with an authorized representative of a legate of the Roman Pope, was maintained in the times of the Livonian Order (1237–1562): they defended the Order in battles or became messengers, interpreters, secretaries, carpenters, blacksmiths and other craftsmen. In return, they received land and were exempt from corvée and duties and enjoyed other privileges. The Curonian kings defended their privileges particularly fiercely during the period of the Duchy of Courland and Semigallia (1561–1795), managing to retain their personal freedom and independence.
