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.

Muhammad I, the ninth Bahri Mamluk sultan, was the youngest son of Sultan Qala'un (of Turkic origin from the Kipchak tribe) and a mother of Mongol origin, and the brother of Sultan Khalil. After the assassination of Khalil in December 1293 by a faction lead by Lajin, Muhammad became sultan at age nine. In December 1294 Muhammad's regent, Kitbugha, deposed Muhammad with the support of Lajin and installed himself as sultan. In 1296 Kitbugha was deposed by Lajin, who then ruled as a sultan until he was murdered in 1299. Muhammad was recalled and reinstated as sultan at age 14, although power was held by Baybars. In 1309 Muhammad, who sought to free himself from the domination of Baybars, withdrew from Egypt and attempted to have Baybars arrested. This failed and Baybars installed himself as sultan, ending Muhammad's second reign. His second reign was dominated by Mongol threats in the Levant. After only ten months an Egyptian mob forced Baybars to flee and Muhammad was reinstated. at age 24. He reigned until his death 31 years later. His third reign was the apogee of Mamluk power and the high-water mark of culture in Egypt since Ptolemaic Alexandria. Eight of his sons and four of his grandsons would be enthroned as sultans.

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.
