1681 the city of Visegrad was being fought over by the Turks. In battle the
siege was commanded by Count Stahrenberg whose live was saved by Gregory Bakody.
In reward for his bravery, he recieved high recognition of Hungarian Nobility.
Highest honor went to the family, accounts of which can be found in the Pozsony
library. The Bakody coat of arms were an ascended helmeted hero. In his right
hand he carries a sword on which there is engraved a Turk's head. In his left
hand he carries the Emperor's flag.
