STOIKOVICS, OFEN, BUDAPEST, FRANZ JOSEPH I
Patent of nobility donated by Emperor Franz Joseph I (1830-1916) to Wasa Ritter von Stoikovics (Kubin, Hungary 1808-?) for his loyal services at the siege of Ofen (Budapest) in 1849.

Holy Roman Empire, Vienna d.d. 8 March 1871. Full purple velvet, front cover decorated with gold embossed imperial coat-of-arms. Good condition. 37x28 cm. Silk endpapers, 8 pages on vellum. Printed decorative margins, text handwritten, with a hand painted coat-of-arms in colour and the original signature of Franz Joseph I. The imperial wax seal is attached by the gold cloth rope of the binding, in a disc shaped wooden case. The seal is cracked. This patent of nobility confirms the handwritten letter of 10 June 1850, which conferred the status of Knight (Ritter) to the recipient. Wasa Stoikovics served the Austrian Empire as soldier and became 'oberstleutenant. He deserved his nobility in the year 1849 at the defense of the Festung Ofen and was decorated with the Order of the Iron Crown third class, which also meant that he recieved the noble title of Ritter. 21 years after recieving this order, the nobility and his coat of arms are confirmed with this patent of nobility. The siege of Ofen took place from 4-21 May 1849. 5000 soldiers in Austrian service fought against 30.000 rebellious Hungarians who tried to take over the Festung during the War of Independence which followed the Hungarian revolution of 1848. The couragious but small army withstood the vigorous attacks for 17 days. Ofen is the German word for Buda, the western part of Budapest. Wasa Stoikovics is also mentioned to command the Theiszer Kron- und Gross-Kikindaer-Districts-Freiwilligen-Battalion in Italy in 1859. The order of the Iron Crown originally was a Napoleonic order, but was reestablished as an Austrian Order of the same name after the fall of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1815. H191
