Economic issues give way to national questions with Klára Lövei, whose noble family had also fallen on hard times. As a woman, she had fewer options than Vásárhelyi. Undaunted, Lövei explored nearly all the career paths open to women of her era (actress, governess, teacher) before becoming in turn a revolutionary, political prisoner, and journalist. Letters, memoirs, and newspaper articles document her remarkable career. These sources can help us understand the roles played by women in provincial society and the importance of education as a means of individual and collective change. Finally, Lövei's pronounced Hungarian national loyalty illuminates what nationalism meant in an ethnically mixed border region.

Keywords:   Klára Lövei, history of education, schools, Blanka Teleki, Máramarossziget, Máramaros County, 1848 Revolution, Magyarization
