NEPOTIZMUS V SPRÁVE LIPTOVSKEJ STOLICE V 18. STOROČÍ
Nepotism in the administration of the Liptov county in the 18th century
Languages of publication
The study presents the results of a new form of research on the official elites in the counties at the time of great changes in the role of county administrations in the 18th century. Evidence of the process of building nepotism comes from uncovering the family backgrounds of members of the Liptov official elite on the basis of registers and genealogical tables. Thus, at first sight, the study adds a new dimension to the uninteresting lists of members of the county administration. There was a dense network of blood and “spiritual” kinship ties in the background of the selection of elected officials. They started with the richest and most influential Liptov families: Okolicsány and Szent-Ivány, members of which were elected to the position of deputy sheriff. Both families relied on help from the sheriff from the Illesházy family, who appointed officials if one died or suddenly resigned from his position.
