Németújvár (Güssing) ? Németújvár became family property in 1524 when Louis II of Hungary gave it to Ferenc Batthyány I. Németújvár was the Batthyány family?s main place of residence in the 16th and 17th century. It may be considered as the central estate of the family; moreover, the Batthyánys? title ?de Németújvár? comes from here. It is situated in the historical Vas County, in today?s Austria. A medieval castle, the Draskovich castle, a Franciscan monastery and church can be found here. The family vault of the Batthyánys is underneath the church, while the Franciscans have the family?s 3500 historical books in the library of the monastery. The municipality has been the residence of many members of the Batthyány family, among others of Ferenc I who established the family court, and Boldizsár III in the 16th century, of Kristóf II and Éva Lobkovicz Poppel, Ádám II in the 17th century, of Palatine Lajos Batthyány and Archbishop József in the 18th century. From the 19th century on, it was the home of numerous members of the family?s ?Count? branch.
