Summary/Abstract: On the basis of detailed interpretation of the usable contemporary sources, the author describes the social and ethnic origin of the Hungarian nobility, and its development as a social group from the 11th to the 13th centuries. Especially according to the provisions of the so-called Golden Bull from 1222, he comes to the conclusion that from the beginning of the 13th century, the nobility regarded military service as a burden, and they strove for a share of political influence in the Kingdom of Hungary. The nobility became the political elite of Hungarian society.
