Ladislaus I of Hungary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (545 words)
Recognizing that the Holy Roman Empire was a natural enemy of the Kingdom of Hungary, Ladislaus formed a close alliance with the pope and other enemies of Emperor Henry IV, including the anti-emperor Rudolph of Swabia and his chief supporter Welf, duke of Bavaria.
Hungary was still semi-savage, and her native barbarians were being perpetually recruited from the hordes of Pechenegs, Romanians and other races which swept over her during the 10th century.
Ladislaus himself had fought valiantly in his youth against the Pechenegs, and to defend the land against the Romanians, who now occupied Moldavia and Wallachia as far as the Olt, he built the fortresses of Turnu-Severin (Szörényvár) and Alba Iulia (Gyulafehérvár, Weißenburg).
