    Notes 
    • King of Hungary 1205-1235. Married 1st Gertrude, died 1213, daughter ofBerthold V, Duke of Meran, 2nd 1215 Jolantha of Courtenay, 3rd 1235Beatrix of Este, died 1245. No other Magyar king perhaps was somischievous to his country. Valiant, enterprising, pious as he was, allthese fine qualities were ruined by a reckless good nature which neverthought of tomorrow. He declared in one of his decrees that thegenerosity of a king should be limitless and he acted up to thisprinciple throughout his reign. The great feudatories did not evenrespect the lives of the royal family, for Andrew was recalled from afutile attempt to reconquer Galicia through the murder of his first wife,Gertrude of Moran, Sept. 24, 1213, by rebellious nobles, jealous of theinfluence of her relatives.
