The aim of the paper is to discuss the practice of charter registration of the Transylvanian princely chancellery during the second half of the 16th century. Since the princely archives and the archives of the chapter of Gyulafehérvár suffered heavy losses at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries respectively in 1658, therefore only a smaller part of the so-called libri regii registers have survived from this period. The clerks of the chancellery, in charge of enrolling the documents registered into these royal books the de gratia charters in a loose chronological order mostly in full text, seldom in detailed or highly abbreviated abstracts against a certain fee, and the fact of registration was marked on the dorses of charters with the so-called regestrata notes. There is no doubt that the royal registers do not contain all the de gratia charters issued by the chancellery, only those were registered, the beneficiaries of which asked for and paid the right fee for it. Apparently the enrollment of the charters into these registers was made after the documents were sealed, and this led to the mixing up of the chronological order of the copied files. If the beneficiary lost his/her charter, an authentic transcription was issued by the chancellery at the request of the clients based on the entries of the libri regii.
