Louis Jagiellon

*1506 (Budapest, Hungary), †1526 (Mohacs, Hungary)

King of Bohemia from 1516 and son of Vladislav II Jagiellon. He was crowned in Prague in 1509 but almost never visited Bohemia and his reign saw the continuation of the decline of the monarchy in the Czech lands. He died attempting to stop the Turkish advance at the battle of Mohacs and his death allowed the Habsburgs to succeed to the Czech and Hungarian crowns.
