The Hungarian Knighthood’s tradition spans 1000 years. Beginning with the reign of St. Stephen, Hungarian Kings have rewarded acts of valor with grants of nobility. The title of Knight is the highest form of secular honor and is accompanied by a code of chivalrous conduct. It is in this backdrop that on August 27, 1988, Zoltan David was bestowed Knighthood in honor of Sir Zoltan David I, his loving father and a highly esteemed hero of the Hungarian Nation. The David family’s history dates back to the reign of St. Stephen and it is this cumulative past that is a dominant influence in Mr. David’s character.
