Hungarian merchant and philanthropist; born at Güns (Köszeg) Sept. 20, 1798; died at Baden, near Vienna, June 28, 1881. He was the first Jew in Hungary to be made an Austrian noble. In his patent of nobility, granted May 13, 1859, by King Francis Joseph I., his services to the imperial dynasty during the revolution in 1848 and 1849 are specially mentioned. Reference is made also to the great benevolence exercised by him "toward suffering humanity, regardless of creed."
