The surname Horvath was first found in Austria, Transylvania and Hongrie where the name became noted for its many branches in the region including Petrichevich, Szent-Giorgy, and Zsebehaz, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the name became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into this most influential family.
