From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Curia Regia was the supreme court of Hungary and Croatia. Charles VI in 1723 divided it into two courts: the Tabula Septemviralis (Court of the seven) and the Tabula Regia Iudiciaria (Royal Court). The Tabula Regia functioned under a dignitary named the personalis, in the case of prevention, of the elder Baron Court. [1]

Tabula Regia Iudiciaria

The Tabula Regia was constituted of two prelates, two Barons of the Court, two deputy judge advocates of the Kingdom: the vice Palatine, the deputy judge advocate of the Curia Regia, four protonotars, four assessors of the Kingdom, four assessors of the archdiocese, four adjunctive assessors.

Tabula Septemviralis

The Tabula Septemviralis, after 1723, was composed by the Palatine, five Prelates (the archbishop of Esztergom and Kalocsa and three bishops), eight magnates and eight nobleman, one Reporter of the mine courts and a recorder.

The Tabula Septemviralis solved the appeals on the verdicts of the Tabula Regia and Tabula Banalis. It was the final instance, and in civil cases it was not possible to appeal its verdict, while in criminal cases, the King had the power to grant amnesty or pardon.
