More »

Peter Orseolo (Hungarian: ; c. 1010-1015 – 1046 or 30 August 1059), called the Venetian in Hungarian, was King of Hungary from 1038 to 1041 and from 1044 to 1046. He continued his predecessor's policy and tried to strengthen Christianity in his semi-pagan kingdom, but his arbitrary actions resulted in his deposition. He could only restore his rule with the assistance of the Holy Roman Emperor whose overlordship he had to acknowledge, but shortly afterwards he was again dethroned during a revolt of the pagan Hungarians.
