Count Imre Thököly de Késmárk (1658-1705). Thököly followed his father Istvan (who died when he was a child) in rebelling against Habsburg rule in Hungary. He led an army of rebels, reinforced by Turkish and Transylvanian forces, and established himself as Prince of Upper Hungary (1682-5). Having formed an alliance with the Ottoman Empire, Thököly assisted the Turks in the Battle of Vienna in 1683, which signalled a resurgence of Habsburg forces. Thököly tried to reconcile himself with Habsburg Emperor Leopold I, offering to lay down his arms in exchange for recognition of Thököly as Prince of Upper Hungary and confirmation of Protestant religious rights in Hungary. Leopold, however, demanded complete surrender, and Thököly renewed hostilities. This 1685 campaign was a failure and ended in imprisonment. Although Thököly achieved subsequent victories with diminished forces, he lost his principality of Upper Hungary and finally retired to Galata, near Istanbul, with large estates granted him by Sultan Mustafa II.
