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.

ISL_Mamluk_Balog_458_Shaban.jpg
Mamluk (Bahri). Sha`ban II (al-Ashraf Nasir al-Din Sha`ban) (764-778 A.H. = 1363-1377 A.D.)1 viewsBalog 458, Plate XVII, Nos. 458a-458b; Album 958

AE fals; Dimashq/Damascus mint, undated; 2.89 g., 19.43 mm. max., 0°

Obv.: Circular line border. Clockwise circular legend, السلطان الملك الا شرف شعبان (= al-Sultan al-Malik al-Ashraf Sha`ban), in the center, spindle-shaped cartouche with fleur-de-lis edges; in it حسن بن (= bin Hasayn).

Rev.: Circular line border. Concave-sided linear octolobe with floweret on the edges. Pellets between the flowerets. In the center: ضرب / مشق بد (= darab=struck / in Dimashq).

Sha'ban II was a grandson of Muhammad I, being the son of one of Muhammad's sons who never held office. In 1363, the senior Mamluk emirs, led by Emir Yalbugha, deposed Sultan Muhammad II on charges of illicit behavior and installed ten-year-old Sha'ban as his figurehead replacement. In 1366 Sha'ban, who sought to wield power, supported a successful revolt against Yalbugha. One year later, Sha'ban, who still had few mamluks of his own but was supported by the common people, quelled a rebellion. Again in 1373, the commoners assisted Sha'ban in defeating a rebellion. Because of their loyalty and key support during these revolts, Sha'ban treated the commoners well throughout his reign, including efforts to provide food for the poor during a two-year famine in Egypt. In 1376, Sha'ban went on the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. In his absence emirs again rebelled against Sha'ban, which was followed by a rebellion of Sha'ban's own mamluk guard, who murdered him in 1377.

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.
