  • ID: I05434
  • Name: Andrew II King of Hungary
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 1176 in Esztergom, Komarom-Esztergom, Hungary
  • Death: 21 SEP 1235
  • Note: King of Hungary 1205-1235. Married 1st Gertrude, died 1213, daughter of Berthold V, Duke of Meran, 2nd 1215 Jolantha of Courtenay, 3rd 1235 Beatrix of Este, died 1245. No other Magyar king perhaps was so mischievous to his country. Valiant, enterprising, pious as he was, all these fine qualities were ruined by a reckless good nature which never thought of tomorrow. He declared in one of his decrees that the generosity of a king should be limitless and he acted up to this principle throughout his reign. The great feudatories did not even respect the lives of the royal family, for Andrew was recalled from a futile attempt to reconquer Galicia through the murder of his first wife, Gertrude of Moran, Sept. 24, 1213, by rebellious nobles, jealous of the influence of her relatives.
