Martin von Schwartner (1759-1823) was a prominent historian and statistician in the Kingdom of Hungary. He was professor of diplomatics and library custodian at the newly founded university of Budapest. He studied at the University of Göttingen, and his major work, entitled 'Statistik des Königreichs Ungern', reflects a profound knowledge of the Göttingen historical statistical school, but also the English political arithmetic.
