The purpose of this study is to present the doctrine of the Holy Crown and its theses in Hungary. The Crown, originally the symbol of the king, embodies later the power of the king and the nobility, and since 1848 all people of the country are members of it. The Crown embodies also the country’s territory. The biggest debate in this issue took place between two legal scholars, Ferenc Eckhart and Ákos Timon; this was the socalled Eckhart-debate. Ákos Timon was a public lawyer with nationalist feelings, according to others someone with feudalist ideas, whereas Ferenc Eckhart was a historian, representing the methodology of the positivist scientificity.
