Chodkiewicz (Lithuanian: Chodkevičius, Kadkevičius, Katkevičius, Katkus) was one of the most influential noble families of Ruthenian descent in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the 16th-17th centuries. Borejko Chodzko (Kościesza coat of arms), chamberlain to Grand Duke Vytenis was probably ancestor of whole clan and gaved it name Chodkiewicz, meaning "son of Chodzko". Surnames were not used in that time, but apparently later in history, the name Chodzko became a surname after christianization of Chodzko Juriewicz, father of Iwan (Jan) Chodkiewicz. They bore Chodkiewicz coat of arms. In the year 1572 Jan Hieronimowicz Chodkiewicz abadoned calvinism for the Roman catholicism with his two sons, what made them first polonized generation of this once Ruthenian family. Emperor Charles V granted the title of Count of the Roman Empire to the whole family. Jan Karol Chodkiewicz - coat of arms This work is copyrighted. ...
