Description
Summary:To date, there has not been a scientific biographical monograph on Elisabeth (Erzsébet) Szilágyi of Horogszeg in Hungarian historiography, researchers have generally dealt with her life only tangentially. As a result, there is no known treatise that focuses exclusively on the kinship of the Hunyadi era’s grand dame. However, the full exploration of Elisabeth’s life justifies a more comprehensive treatment of this topic. In this study, I would like to give an insight into the family background of Elisabeth Szilágyi. Through a literature review of the subject, I will present her lineage, starting from her first known ancestors, and especially her parents’ life. In my analysis, I will also examine the geographical and social origins of his parents’ families. Furthermore, I will briefly summarise what we know about Elisabeth’s siblings and their lineage. In addition, my thesis aims to point out uncertainties which, in my opinion, can be further explored in the future to gain a more thorough understanding of Elisabeth’s family background.
