В 1498 г. впервые появился термин «бухгалтер»

The decree of Maximilian I, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, read: “From now on, we order to call bookkeeper the clerk of our chamber and diligent calligrapher Christoph Stecher who keeps accounts.” This is the name of the first bookkeeper in history. At that time, there was no Italian double-entry bookkeeping (information for non-specialists), which was invented by Luca Pacioli – a man. Later, the fair sex mastered bookkeeping, like trousers and many masculine professions. So bookkeeping has a womanly face nowadays, which adorns this profession.
