St. STEPHEN OF HUNGARY

Christian Saint

Also known as Stephen I of Hungary

King of Hungary

He was a good one for the country. He made a code of laws and legislation which filled fifty chapters, and always tried to seek peaceable solutions with his neighbors. If negotiations didn’t work, he had a reputation for being victorious.

His reputation was usually enough to keep the peace. He actively broadcasted the fact that he did not want to kill people — he would rather pray for them to go away.

Encouraged by this pacifist message, the German Emperor decided that Hungary was a sitting duck ripe for the plucking. He began invasion plans.

With a sigh Stephen mustered his army. The sight of which caused the German Emperor to change his mind and go back home.
