HUNGARY: The Arpadian & Angevin Interregnum (1301-1307)


HUN_Venzel_Huszar_434a.jpg

Upon the death of Andrew III (1290-1301) and the extinction of the Arpadian 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 Arpadian blood: Wenceslaus' great-grandmother was a daughter of Bela 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 Bela 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.

Upon the death of James, tenth Earl of Derby in 1736, sovereignty of the Isle of Man passed into the hands of James Murray, second Duke of Atholl, who was the maternal grandson of James Stanley, seventh Earl of Derby (executed in 1651 as a Royalist during the English Civil War). This coinage, comprised of £250 in pennies (60,000 coins) and £150 pounds in half pennies (36.000 coins), was issued to address a currency shortage on the island. Due to the softness of the copper used, the coins tended to wear rapidly. His daughter, Charlotte Murray, Duchess of Atholl, and her husband, John Murray, third Duke of Atholl, sold their manorial rights in the Isle of Man to the Crown in 1765, but the coinage remained legal tender until 1786.

AR obulus (average 0.7500 fineness; .3 g., 10.2 mm.); .32 gr., 9.98 mm. max, 180°

Obv: Crowned head facing front with two swords.

Rev: Two standing lions looking back over their shoulders, a star between them.

The coins of András II can be divided into four weight groups, with average weights of the denárs being 0.53, 0.59, 0.86 and 0.79 grams, and the heaviest apparently issued between 1222 and 1230 (per Huszár at 11). If so, based on the average weight of the companion denár (Huszár 269), this emission was issued 1222-1230, although Gyöngyössy dates it to 1215-1222.

Rengjeo, Mimica and Dimnick-Dobrinić refer to this emission as a Croatian Freisacher issued in Slavonia under András II (1205-1235) and Dukes Béla (1220-1226; governor of Dalmatia and Croatia) and Kálmán/Coloman (1226-1235; duke of Dalmatia and Croatia) (Group V). This attribution was initially made by Hóman in 1920, who tentatively assigned this emission to a Zagreb mint. However, the basis of this attribution has been proven to be erroneous, and the consensus among Hungarian numismatists is that the emission is Hungarian (per Metcalf [1979] at 156).
