Item description for The Elefanthy by Erik Fugedi...
In an exploration of the life and customs of the Hungarian nobility, this book compares historical reality and legal literature on the example of one noble family - the Elefanthy kindred from northern Hungary (present-day Slovakia). The author begins by outlining the customary law regarding noble status, inheritance, and marriage, as summarised in the famous code of Stephen Werboczy (1514). He then compares these norms with the documentary evidence and finds that the legal literature differs in regard to social mobility and kindred solidarity.
