Bohemia, Wladislaus II, 1471 - 1516
|Bohemia|, |Bohemia,| |Wladislaus| |II,| |1471| |-| |1516|, Vladislaus II was King of Bohemia from 1471 to 1516, and King of Hungary and Croatia from 1490 to 1516. After Matthias's death, Vladislaus laid claim to Hungary (his mother was sister of Matthias's predecessor). The Diet of Hungary elected him king after his supporters defeated John Corvinus. Two other claimants, Maximilian of Habsburg and his own brother, John Albert, invaded Hungary, but they failed and made peace. In Bohemia and in Hungary, Vladislaus always approved the decisions of the Royal Council, hence his nickname "Dobzse Lszl," meaning "King Very Well." Due to concessions made before his election, the treasury could not finance a standing army. The Ottomans made regular raids against the southern border and after 1493 even annexed territories in Croatia.
