The main aim of this paper is to show the connection between the Hungarian governmental structure and the specific names of the ministries. There are three questions chosen to be shown here. The first one is the role of act III of 1848 in determining the names of the ministries. This act is fundamental to the Hungarian governmental structure, that is why it is a justifiable expectation from the act to give at least the first names of the ministries. Contrarily, the specific names of the original ministries were not defined, just the approximate spheres of action of the government’s departments. This manner of the regulation caused great variance in the usage of the ministry names. The second question to be examined in this paper is the first amendment of the original act III of 1848 concerning the ministry names. Act XVIII of 1889 changed the names of two ministries. The real reasons of this amendment are not known, but the initiative to make this change lead to the articulation of some important principles regarding the names and the sphere of action of the ministries. The main principle was that the names, the number and the competence of the ministries may only be determined and regulated by acts, and not lower laws. The third question discusses the greatest change in the governmental structure during the era of the dualistic monarchy, act XI of 1917. This act created an opportunity for the government to increase the number of the ministries with four new ministers without portfolio. The act did not determine the names of the new ministries, nor the competencies of the specific ministries. This routine was new and unique to the Hungarian public law.
