Nagyvázsony - Hungary

Nagyvázsony 126-1

The village is first mentioned in a charter of 1233. Its name comes from the Váson clan, a dynasty which died out in 1472. King Matthias then gifted the estate to his favourite follower Pál Kinizsi, the military leader who had once been a miller's hand, a hero of legendary strength who defeated the Turkish. Kinizsi had it built into a residential castle.
