Stephen BAthory, 1477–1534, a loyal adherent of John I of Hungary (John ZApolya), was made (1529) voivode [governor] of Transylvania.
His youngest son became (1575) king of Poland (see Stephen BAthory, king of Poland) and was succeeded as prince of Transylvania by his brother, Christopher BAthory, 1530–81.
At first a loyal vassal of the Hapsburg king of Hungary (Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II), he crushed (1594) the pro-Turkish faction of nobles and was recognized by Rudolf as hereditary prince.
