RAKOCZI GEORG II 1648-1660 II RAKOCZI GYORGY

Gyorgy Rakoczi II (January 30, 1621–June 7, 1660), was elected prince of Transylvania during his father’s (Gyorgy Rakoczi I) lifetime (19 February 1642). On ascending the throne (October 1648), he allied himself, in the beginning of 1649, with the Cossack hetman, Bohdan Khmelnytsky, Vasile Lupu of Moldavia and Matei Basarab of Wallachia to realize his father’s Polish ambitions. He took Cracow and entered Warsaw as the ally of Charles X Gustav in 1657. But after his allies withdrew, his forces were defeated in July 1657 by the Polish army. The Transylvanian diet, at the command of the Porte, deposed him two times, but reinstated him each time. The Turks invaded Transylvania, and Rakoczy died at Nagyvarad of the wounds received at the battle of Gyalu (Gilău), in May 1660.

Asociat la domnie inca din 19 Febr. 1642, Gyorgy Rakoczi II (Gheorghe Rakoczi II) a devenit principe al Transilvaniei in 1648. A aderat la coalitia suedo-prusaca si cu ajutor moldo-valah a ocupat Cracovia si Varsovia in 1657. A fost invins la 22 iulie 1657 si a capitulat, iar Dieta l-a deposedat de tron. A impus Dietei de la Medias realegerea sa ca principe, dar cateva luni mai tarziu Dieta a impus ca principe pe Barcsai Achatius. Oastea lui Rakoczi este infranta la Gilau in mai 1660, iar principele moare pe campul de batalie.
