Abstract in different language: One of the oldest privileges of the officers of the Habsburg Monarchy established by Maria Theresa in 1757 gave the commissioned officers involved in a campaign after 30 years of service the right to apply for free-of-charge ennoblement in the Habsburg Monarchy (later Austrian Empire). The aim was to enhance the social status of the officers as well as to strengthen the pledge between these officers and the monarch. In the following years, the directive was further amended. Since 1896 a forty-year service sufficed for ennoblement of an officer and, at the same time, it was determined that Austrian officers shall be granted an Austrian title and Hungarian officers a Hungarian title. World War I, however, witnessed the most dramatic rise in modifications. The study focuses on the recruitment of nobility from the ranks of officers and its main goal is the scrutiny of the events leading to the aforementioned changes throughout World War I and the consequences of these changes.
