 Stephen Báthory
Stephen Báthory, or in Hungarian, István Báthory, King of Poland and prince of Transylvania, the most famous member of the Somlyó branch of the ancient Báthory family, now extinct, but originally almost coeval with the Hungarian monarchy.
On the flight of Henry of Valois from Poland in 1574, the Polish nobility, chiefly at the instigation of the great chancellor, Jan Zamoyski, elected Báthory king of Poland (1575) in opposition to the emperor Maximilian, the candidate of the senate.
Two campaigns of wearing marches, and still more exhausting sieges ensued, in which Báthory, although repeatedly hampered by the parsimony of the Diet, was uniformly successful, his skilful diplomacy at the same time allaying the suspicions of the Porte and the emperor.

Having secured the Transylvanian succession for his brother Christopher, Stephen hurried to Kraków and was crowned on May 1, 1576, but could not totally pacify the country until the end of 1577, when he subdued Gdansk.
Though personally tolerant of differing religious views, Stephen, a strong-willed man and a Roman Catholic, encountered considerable resistance from his subjects in his attempts to promote the Counter-Reformation and to strengthen his royal power; but he did not allow his domestic difficulties to prevent his ambitious foreign adventures.
