Excellent. Werboczy, 1458-1541, lawyer and one of Hungary's leading politicians. His reputation rests on the Tripartitum, the code of customary law that he presented to the diet in 1514 and had published three years later in Vienna. Until the 1848 revolution, his work retained a largely unimpaired authority in respect of Hungarian noble society and its legal relations. Its principles and provisions laid down the substantive law of noble landholding, the special priviliges enjoyed by the nobility, and the practices and procedures to be followed by the royal courts.
