Researching the statement: ...." In the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, the family owned many castles and large residences. It's said that they owned up to 99 castles but never 100 as this would have required their personal contribution to fund the imperial army."....Edit

Hi, I came across this statement : ..."In the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, the family owned many castles and large residences. It's said that they owned up to 99 castles but never 100 as this would have required their personal contribution to fund the imperial army."... on the wiki page : https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Pálffy_ab_Erdöd&oldid=910976523

I have no idea "how" wiki works, and was trying to email the creator of this page, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Pálffy_ab_Erdöd&oldid=910976523, where he would have found this claim/statement. what historic book it might come from, etc., etc..

Sadly, after 20 minutes of surfing wiki, I still have no clue why there are no email addresses of writers here to be found.

Could you possibly help me find the right track and the right way of communication so that I could find out who wrote this page with this specific statement?

any help guiding me into the right direction would be much appreciated,

Regards,

I am a direct descendent of the Pálffy-Daun of Erdöd family, and hence am very curious where this claim of 99 castles came from. I am not doubting it, but I never heard of it before. It would be fun to be able to see the source of this statement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2a05:dcc0:13:6600:94f4:b4fd:4287:73ea (talk) 19:01, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
