The authoress of the study is concerned with the beginnings, origin and development of the oldest nobility of Zvolen, which has previously received little attention from historical-genealogical research. The beginnings of the nobility in the oldest period were socially connected mainly with the hereditary ownership of land. The authoress directed her attention to researching the hereditary ownership of property by the nobility, which can be reconstructed from donation and other royal charters or from other documents. The authoress is only concerned with the initial period of this complex process, that is with the noblemen who owned property in the Zvolen region up to about 1400. The oldest documents confirm that a group of the feudal lords existed in the Zvolen region from a very early date. Its first known representatives are the royal pristald Radun and his sons, who certainly owned land in this region at the beginning of the 13th century. They belonged to the higher nobility who were rewarded for their military service with numerous royal donations. According to the authoress' research, Radun and his sons had a common origin with the Dubak family. According to the latest research, the Dubak family belonged to the wider kindred of the old Branc-Lipovnicky family. Around 1300 the descendants of Radun became the founders of the majority of the families not only in the Zvolen region (Radvansky, Micinsky, Ponicky), but also in Hont (Balog, Geci) and Novohrad (Madac, Sos).
