Sažetak This three-part article reviews the current state of research into the history of the no-
bility of the medieval Križevci County. It furthermore proposes the context in which
this topic should be studied. The first part discusses the main issues concerning the
nobility of the Križevci County, as well as nobility in general. In the discussion of the
appropriate context for studying this social group, the author stresses the importance
of the historical-anthropological approach, as exemplified by the work of Georges
Duby and Erik Fügedi. He concludes that the micro-historical approach provides a
better understanding of the social reality of certain regions than the standard histori-
cal approach to studying groups in general.
The second part reviews scholarly literature on the nobility of the Križevci Coun-
ty. The review consists of three chapters. The first chapter discusses the scholarship
studying the nobility of the Križevci County directly, as a social group, or indirectly,
when studying the history of the region. It furthermore examines which questions
and which geographical areas within the county have intrigued the scholars the most.
It is shown that the nobility of the Križevci-Kalnik region has been studied the most,
followed by the studies of the nobility of the areas of Cirkvena and Vrbovec, the regi-
ons of Garešnica-Moslavina, and finally Podravina (the areas of Ludbreg, Đurđevac
and Koprivnica). Best studies are, however, on the nobility of the Rovišće area. The
nobility of the southern and of the most of the county’s central areas received little
attention from historians. Moreover, most historians studied social and legal status
of lesser nobility and their relationships with more prominent noble families. Other
authors stressed the active social role of the nobility, and tried to identify the owners
of certain landed estates. There have been few case studies of noble families, with the
exception of the old but comprehensive study of the Svetački family by Vjekoslav
Klaić and the less detailed studies on the Mikčec, štefanović, Budor, Čuz of Ludbreg,
and Paližna families.
The second chapter reviews studies on the nobility of the medieval counties of Pože-
ga and Zagreb. Its aim is to offer research models and comparative cases for writing
a history of Križevci nobility. The author concludes that, similar to the studies on
the nobility of the Križevci County, few historians have attempted to identify noble
families and kin, or to trace the continuity of the landed estates ownership. Histo-
riography of the nobility of the Zagreb County made some important advances in
studying noble women, especially concerning the institution of the quarta puellaris.
Of particular importance is Marija Karbić’s dissertation on the kindred of the Banus
Borić, in which she examined some anthropological and sociological issues related
to the kindred.
The third chapter discusses the key literature providing models for studying the nobi-
lity of the Križevci County, in the first place studies by Dezső Csánki, Josip Bösendor-
fer, Josip Buturac, Georg Heller, Pál Engel and others scholars of medieval topograp-
hy and geography of the area, as well as literature on heraldry and biography.
The results of the survey are recapitulated in the third part of the article (Conclusi-
