Stephen Batory

Stephen Báthory (Hungarian: Báthory István, Lithuanian: Steponas Batoras, Romanian: Ştefan Báthory, Polish: Stefan Batory, Russian: Стефан Баторий) (27 September 1533 – 12 December 1586) was a Hungarian noble Prince of Transylvania (1571-1586), then King consort of Poland (1576-1586) and Duke consort of Lithuania (1576-1586) to Anna Jagiellon. He was a member of the Somlyo branch of the noble Hungarian Báthory family. Many historians consider him to be one of the greatest of the elected Kings of Poland.
