Summary/Abstract: The Zobor Charters of 1111 and 1113 belong to the oldest and most important sources of the Slovak history. Their significance lies not only in the knowledge of the Church history, but also of the socio-cultural circumstances shortly after the forcible termination of the Granted Dukedom of Nitra. Thanks to their existence we can identify the most significant nobility in Nitra personified in the Poznan family. The charter of 1113 maps the historical geographical conditions of the south-western Slovakia.
