The Rákóczi (older spelling Rákóczy) were a Hungarian noble family in the Kingdom of Hungary between the 13th century and 18th century. Their name is also spelled Rakoczi and Rakoczy in some foreign (English) sources
Probably the most famous member of the family was Francis II Rákóczi (1676-1735) who was elected prince (fejedelem) of the Confederated Estates of the Kingdom of Hungary and Prince of Transylvania 1703-1711. He led an anti-Habsburg war during that time; after the defeat of the rebellion, the Rákóczi family's wealth was confiscated.
The last member of the family was György (George) Rákóczi, the son of Francis II Rákóczi, who died in France in 1756.
