    Notes:

    From Leo van de Pas:

    Béla was born about 1016, the third son of Vazul (Basil) 'the Blind' of Hungary, and younger brother of András I, who was crowned king after the Vatha pagan rising.

    In 1048 András conferred on Béla one third of Hungary as appanage ('Tercia pars Regni'), making him Duke of the Nitrian Frontier duchy, with Nitra its capital, and which included the southern Slovakian Nitrian principality and the north-eastern historic Hungarian Bihar region (not identical to the later Bihar).

    The two brothers shared power without incident until 1053, when András fathered a son Salomon. Thereafter András became determined to secure the throne for his son and to displace his brother. András therefore had Salomon, Béla's nephew, crowned future king in 1057. According to legend, András placed before Béla a crown and a sword, representing royal and ducal power, respectively, and asked Béla to take his choice. Knowing that choosing the crown would mean his life, Béla instead selected the sword. In 1059 Béla fled to Poland where he was received by his brother-in-law Kazimierz I Karol, king of Poland, brother of Béla's wife Richeza. Béla and Richeza had eight children, of whom five would have progeny, and two, Geisa I and Lászlo I, would be kings of Hungary.

    In 1060 Béla returned to Hungary and defeated András I to become the new king. After András' death, Béla was crowned king on 6 December 1060. During his brief reign he concerned himself with crushing pagan revolts in his kingdom. In 1063 Béla died in an accident when his throne's canopy collapsed. After his death the Holy Roman Emperor Heinrich IV installed András I's son Salomon as the new king, and Belá's sons had to flee to Poland again.

    Béla married Adelaide of Poland between 1039 and 1043. Adelaide (daughter of Mieszko II Lambert, King Of Poland and Richeza of Lotharingia) was born on 22 Sep 1013; died after 1051. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Adelaide of Poland was born on 22 Sep 1013 (daughter of Mieszko II Lambert, King Of Poland and Richeza of Lotharingia); died after 1051.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 21 May 1075

    Notes:

    Traditionally called Richeza, but contemporary sources suggest that her actual name was a form of Adelaide.

    There appears to be uncertainty as to whether she was actually a daughter of Mieszko II, King of Poland, and Richeza of Lotharingia.

    "The Blind." Also called Vászoly.

    "[T]he only certain information of his life [is] that he was kept in captivity and blinded in the fortress of Nyitra (Nitra, Slovakia) in the last years of the reign of his cousin, King Stephen I of Hungary. Modern historians, including György Györffy, do not exclude that he had earlier been Duke of Nyitra. He is the forefather of nearly all Kings of Hungary who reigned after 1046." [Wikipedia]
