PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2001.
The chaste King Géza was unable to establish unity during his brief reign, leaving the task to his younger brother Ladislas, who succeeded him to the throne in 1077. Ladislas’s harsh laws bridled the passion and anger that had been unleashed, and taking sides with the Pope he managed to adroitly maintain a balance between the influence of the Church and the Germans. Ladislas initiated the canonisation of Stephen, the king who had had his grandfather blinded, and whose political legacy he identified with. Ladislas joined the Greek hoop crown with the Latin crown that had been used to crown Stephen, and in so doing created the Holy Crown of Hungary, today a symbol of millennial Hungarian statehood. Some of his contemporaries referred to him as ”Elegantissimus rex”, others as the ”Knight King.” His popularity soared, and his reign gave rise to many tales and legends.
