that I might be able to overcome whatever of tradition or
nature that would not tend to my exaltation in the eternal
worlds. I desire a fruitful, active mind, that I may be able to comprehend the designs of God, when revealed through His servants without doubting."

  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Béla IV, King of Hungary (1235–70) and of Croatia (1235–70), duke of Styria 1254–58. One of the most famous kings of Hungary, he distinguished himself through his policy of strengthening of the royal power following the example of his grandfather Bela III, and by the rebuilding Hungary after the catastrophe of the Mongolian invasion in 1241. For this reason he is called by the Hungarians "the second founder of our country".
      Béla was the eldest son of King Andrew II of Hungary and his first wife, Gertrude of Merania. Upon Pope Innocent III's request, the ecclesiastic and temporal dignitaries of the Kingdom of Hungary took an oath before his birth that they would accept him as his father's successor.
      Béla was probably present when a group of conspirators murdered his mother on September 28, 1213. Following the murder, his father ordered only the execution of the conspirators' leader and forgave the other members of the group, which resulted in Béla's emerging antipathy against his father.
      In 1220, Béla married Maria Laskarina, a daughter of the Emperor Theodore I Laskaris of Nicaea and Anna Angelina.
      Béla married Maria's children were:
      Saint Kunigunda (5 March 1224 – 24 July 1292), wife of Prince Bolesaw V the Chaste of Poland
      Margaret (before †1242)
      Catherine (before †1242)
      Anna, (1226/1227 – after 3 July 1271), wife of Prince Rostislav of Mac(va
      Elisabeth, (1236 – 24 October 1271), wife of Henry XIII, Duke of Bavaria
      Konstantia, (? – ?), wife of King Leo I of Halych
      Blessed Yolanda, (1235 – 16/17 June after 1303), wife of Bolesaw the Pious Duke of Greater Poland
      King Stephen V of Hungary, (before 18 October 1239 – 6 August 1272)
      Saint Margaret, (27 January 1242 – 18 January 1271)
      Duke Béla of Slavonia (c. 1245 – 1269)
      Szabina, wife of Mózes (Majos/Majs/Mojs/Moys), Palatine of Hungary (? – 1280)
      Béla lost his favourite son in the summer of 1269. Afterwards, his favourite daughter, Anna exercised more and more influence over him. In his last will, Béla entrusted his daughter and his followers to her son-in-law, King Otakar II of Bohemia, because he did not trust his son.

      He was crowned king at the age of 8
