Majláth was born in Zavar, then part of Pozsony county in the Kingdom of Hungary (in modern-day Slovakia). He entered politics in his early 30s, and was appointed to a series of positions. In 1817 he became deputy head of Pozsony county; in 1819, second commissioner for Transylvania; in 1821 a member of the Governor's Council (Helytartótanács); and in 1822 prothonotary to the royal court. From 1832 to 1839 he worked as Staatsrat in Vienna, and in 1839 was appointed judge royal (országbíró) of Hungary. Around the time of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, he became president of the upper house of the National Assembly in Pest, but resigned shortly thereafter. He died in 1861 in Vienna.
His son, also named György Majláth, was also active in Hungarian politics.
