Summary/Abstract: The princely estate of Alba Iulia (Gyulafehérvár) has been established in the middle of the sixteenth century. The landlords of the estate were partly the Bishops of Transylvania before 1542, and the Chapter of Transylvania before 1556. After the secularization (1556) the role of these possessions situated around the capital of Principality, was to supply the princely court of Alba Iulia. The princely estate have been managed by the administrators (provisores) and by the bailiffs (officiales) with regulated duties and competences. The administrators had judicial, administrative and financial duties, and they were usually the prince’s men of confidence such as Imre Szikszai.
