  1. Liszt's Hungarian passport spelt his gien name as "Ferencz". An orthographic reform o the Hungarian leid in 1922 (which wis 36 years efter Liszt's death) chynged the letter "cz" to simply "c" in aw wirds except surnames; this has led tae Liszt's gien name bein rendered in modren Hungarian uisage as "Ferenc". Frae 1859 tae 1867 he wis offeecially Franz Ritter von Liszt; he wis creatit a Ritter (knicht) bi Emperor Francis Joseph I in 1859, but never uised this teetle o nobility in public. The teetle wis necessary tae mairy the Princess Carolyne zu Sayn-Wittgenstein withoot her losin her privileges, but efter the mairiage fell throu, Liszt transferred the teetle tae his uncle Eduard in 1867. Eduard's son wis Franz von Liszt.
