Summary/Abstract: In the historical research of Šariš, the castle estate plays an important role. Šariš as a period conditioned economic and social system of villages also had an important influence of a political nature. It made it possible for the owner of the castle to have at his disposal greater financial means and thus build up his own armed forces. As the territory of Šariš was affiliated to the Árpád state in the beginning of the 13th century, castle estates – their origins and development – are one of the trustworthy testimonies of this affiliation. The analysed sample is the Šebeš castle estate which fits in this period. The detailed analysis of the documents of the Šebeš family provides information not only on the castle estate itself, but also on the surrounding possessions in the Middle Ages in the 13-14th centuries.
