HUNGARY: The Árpadián – Angevin Interregnum (1301-1307)


HUN_Venzel_Huszar_433.jpg

Upon the death of Andrew III (1290-1301) and the extinction of the Árpadián dynasty, the throne was claimed by Wenceslaus (age 11), son of Wenceslaus II Premyslid, king of Bohemia, and also by Charles Robert (age 13), son of Charles II of Anjou, king of Naples and Sicily. They both had Árpadián blood: Wenceslaus' great-grandmother was a daughter of Béla IV (1235-1270) and Charles Robert's grandmother was a daughter of Ladislaus IV (1272-1290). Charles Robert prevailed in the factional warfare that ensued, and Wenceslaus renounced the throne in favor of Otto of Wittelsbach, Duke of Bavaria, whose grandmother was a daughter of Béla IV. Otto was expelled in 1307, leaving Charles Robert the uncontested king.

HUNGARY: The Angevin Dynasty - Maria (1382-1387/1395)


HUN_Maria_Huszar_569_Pohl_114-3.jpg

Maria was the oldest surviving daughter of King Louis I (1342-1382) and Elizabeth of Bosnia. Her marriage to Sigismund of Luxembourg was arranged before her first birthday. When Louis died in September 1382 without a son, Mary (then age 11-12) was crowned "king." Elizabeth assumed the regency. The majority of Hungary's nobility, however, objected to a female sovereign. viewing Maria's distant Angevin cousin, Charles III of Naples, as the rightful king. To strengthen Maria's position, Elizabeth engaged Maria to Louis, the younger brother of the king of France, who had been engaged to Maria's deceased older sister. Charles invaded Hungary in September 1385. Sigismund followed and persuaded Elizabeth to marry Maria to him. He was not crowned or given a role in government, and was unable to prevent Charles from occupying Buda. Fearing for her life, Maria renounced the throne. Charles was crowned king, but weeks later, in February 1386, was assassinated by Elizabeth. Maria was restored with Elizabeth again as regent. That July, supporters of Charles' son captured Maria and Elizabeth (who was executed). During her captivity, the Hungarian Diet declared Sigismund regent, crowning him in March 1387. Maria was liberated in July. She nominally co-ruled, with Sigismund, until her death in labor, precipitated by a fall from a horse in a hunting accident, in 1395.

In effect, Emir Taz was the ruler of the sultanate and Salih was a figurehead sultan, although Salih did lead an army into Syria to quash a rebellion. In 1354, dissident emirs ousted Taz, toppled Salih and restored Hasan to power.

Rev.: Circular line border, linear hexagram within. بحماة (=bi-Hamah) in center.

The death of Muhammad I in June 1341 was followed by a period of political instability. Muhammad designated his son Abu Bakr as his successor, but Muhammad's senior aide, Qawsun, who held real power, executed Abu Bakr after just two months as sultan. Qawsun had Muhammad's infant son, Kujuk (age 8 or 9), enthroned, but within six months, Qawsun and Kujuk were toppled. Kujuk's half-brother, Ahmad I, was declared sultan. Ahmad relocated to al-Karak, leaving a deputy to rule in Cairo. He was deposed after just five months, and replaced by his half-brother Isma'il in June 1342. In light of the chronology assigned to this coin by the SNAT, it could conceivably have been issued late in the third reign of Muhammad or early in the reign of Isma'il. It could also conceivably have been issued by one of Isma'il's three predecessors. However, according to the Table of Mint Activity in Balog, none of them issued copper coins from the Hamah mint.

Obv: VICTORIA -- REGINA, bust of Victoria facing left

Rev: TO HANOVER, figure of monkey riding a horse to the right, leaping over a dragon (in the style of St George slaying the dragon), 1837 in exergue.

Edge: milled

When William IV died in 1837, Victoria was crowned Queen of Great Britain. However she was prevented by Salic law, which barred a female from acceding the throne, from also being crowned Queen of Hanover. There was agitation in Britain for the repeal of Hanover's Salic law, to no avail. Her unpopular uncle, Ernest Augustus, the Duke of Cumberland, who was William's oldest male heir, was sent off to Hanover as king. For the first time since the accession of George I in 1714, the unified British and Hanoverian monarchies were split. Ernest's income as King of Hanover was considerably greater than his modest allowance as Duke of Hanover. He therefore hastened to occupy his new throne, and to collect his revenues.

The gaming tokens (commonly known as "jacks") bearing the words "To Hanover" (commonly known as Cumberland Jacks) are satirical pieces. They are usually found with Victoria's portrait on the obverse and the year 1837, in which she and Ernest acceded to their thrones, in the exergue on the reverse. The reverse design is based on that of St. George slaying the dragon found on Britain's gold sovereigns. Instead, they depict Ernest (usually with the face of a monkey) riding a horse and leaping over the dragon in his haste to claim his throne. They express the sentiment that Britain is pleased to welcome Victoria to the throne but bids good riddance to Ernest. They were produced from around the time of Victoria's ascension in 1837 until their production was made illegal in 1883.
