Ministerialrat Victor MIHÁLFFY von Mihálfy (? - ?)
Died 1930.11.27. Budapest at age 72.

Győző = Victor in Hungarian. The "Nagykosztolányi" is the part of his nobility title.

I think that we are looking at two different officers. You refer to nagykosztolányi Mihálffy Győző (honvédelmi miniszteri tanácsos) 1854-1930. The officer for whom I am looking for birth and death dates is Ministerialrat Victor MIHÁLFFY von Mihálfy (in Hungarian: mihálfi Mihálffy Győző), who was promoted to Ministerialrat in 1900 and retired in 1906. Nagykosztolányi Mihálffy Győző was too young for both these promotion and retirement dates.

The "miniszteri tanácsos" means Ministerialrat in Hungarian. He used the nobility title "mihálfi" just until 1908. In that year the King confirmed his old Hungarian nobility, and donated the new title "nagykoszolányi" to him.

His funeral notice. Mentioned him as retired miniszteri tanácsos (Ministerialrat) of the Honvédelmi Minisztérium (contemporary DoD). And, as I mentioned above, Victor=Győző. In this period, they used always the Hungarian name forms (they even "translated" the first names of the foreginers e.g. the french wirter Jules Verne was Verne Gyula in Hungary.)

The other thing, that he was 77 years old, not 72 - the first obituary is wrong.

Thank you, Markgraf, for your comments. I am surprised that Mihálffy was promoted to Ministerialrat (miniszteri tanácsos) at the age of 46, and retired at the age of 52, both very much below the normal age ranges for promotions to general rank and for retirement, however, the 13 October 1908 announcement of his receipt of the nobility title of "Nagykosztolányi" states that on that date in 1908 he was already a retired Ministerialrat (nyugalmazott miniszteri tanacsosnak), so that would serve as support for the argument that in fact we are looking at only one office.

I totally agree, but he was not a "real" General, just a military official. Moreover he transferred from the Ministry of Finance in 1888. Then he was in pay grade VII. - so he started his "military" career as an Lt. Col. equivalent.

I haven't had much time during the last weeks, but I'll slowly get back to it when circumstances permit.
