von Neumann family
The von Neumann family (also spelled de Neuman) is a Jewish family that was elevated to the ranks of nobility in Austria-Hungary.
In 1830 Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor created the title Baron of Neumann for Philipp von Neumann. In 1913 Franz Joseph I of Austria elevated three branches of the family to noble rank. One branch of the family, von Neumann de Végvár, were elevated to the rank of baron. The first three members of the family to be created Barons of Végvár were Adolf and Dániel Neumann. Later that year Franz Joseph I elevated Miksa von Neumann to the landed nobility. This branch was given the nobiliary particle and style von Neumann de Margitta. Another branch of the family Neumann von Héthárs were granted the rank of hereditary knight by the emperor.
