Through the example of a lord lieutenant (főispán), Sándor Erdősy, this study examines how questioning his honor affected the career of a lord lieutenant during the early 20th century, and how much did the verdict of the honor court following a refused duel contribute to his downfall. Erdősy was the head of Maros-Torda County and Marosvásárhely for only a few months in 1910. The conflicts in the county started to intensify as early as the internal crisis of 1905-1906, eventually leading to the altercation analized in this study, which received national publicity. While examining this sprawling story we can learn about the intertwining of local and national politics, as well as the utility of the press as a political weapon, but the study is primarily concerned with the conflicting concepts of honor in this case, how various parties instrumentalized the concept of honor, and how political interests partially triumphed over group norms.
