Catalog: THOKOLY EMERICH 1682-1690


Born in September 1657, Thokoly Emerich was the leader of the anti-Habsburg uprising from 1677. In 1682, he took the title of Prince of Transylvania, after the Ottoman Porta gave his OK. He was in war most of the time, and after Apafi dyed, the Ottoman Porta imposed Thokoly as Prince. The Diet wanted Apafi’s minor son to be the Prince, and Thokoly with the help of the turks and Constantin Brancoveanu came to Transylvania and defeated the Imperial army at Zarnesti. But after a short while, in October 1690 Ludovic of Baden forced him to leave.

Nascut in Septembrie 1657, Emerich Thokoly a fost conducatorul din 1677 al nobilimii razvratite impotriva Habsburgilor. In 1682 a luat titlul de principe al Transilvaniei cu asentimentul Portii Otomane. Domnia sa, consumata in paralel cu aceea a lui Mihai Apafi, s-a derulat mai mult pe campul de batalie. Dupa moartea lui Apafi, Poarta Otomana l-a impus ca principe. Dieta a vrut sa-l proclame pe fiul minor al lui Apafi ca principe, iar Thokoly a patruns in Transilvania si a invins trupele imperiale la Zarnesti cu ajutorul turcilor si al lui Constantin Brancoveanu. Dar dupa o scurta perioada de timp, la sfarsitul lui octombrie 1690 a fost izgonit de trupele lui Ludovic de Baden.

He only minted gold coins in 1683 and 1690: 10 ducat; 4 ducat ; 3 ducat; ducat.
There is one silver coin of 4 talers from 1690 known, unique.
