This dual rule lasted until Jano´s’s death in 1541, the year when the Turks occupied Buda and Hungary effectively became split into three separate regions. For the next 150 years, Hungary would be a divided, over-taxed, and impoverished land, as well as a theater of continuous antagonism and war for supremacy between the Habsburg and the Ottomans. Kingdom of Hungary, a crescent-shaped territory extending from Western Croatia across Transdanubia to Slovakia, was under the Habsburg Crown. Transylvania (and Partium), comprised of eastern territories bordering Moldavia and Walachia, was a semi-independent principality.

By the beginning of the twentieth century, around 5 percent of Hungary’s population was Jewish, as well as almost a quarter of Budapest’s inhabitants. In the first decade of the twentieth century city-dwelling Hungarian Jews were a highly educated group, mostly working as lawyers, medical practitioners, industrialists, and financiers, as well as journalists, writers, and artists. Their intellectual and material prosperity laid the foundation for a new Hungarian bourgeoisie, though the glaring lack of their presence in government, civil service, and agriculture pointed to inherent and inherited inequalities.

The insurrection was only a partial success, ending with the signing of a peace treaty at Szatma´r in 1711. The treaty arranged for a CONTEXT 27 compromise with the Habsburgs, guaranteeing the Hungarian nobility certain rights, such as restitution of confiscated property, respect for the Constitution, and religious peace, while at the same time, consenting to the annexation of Transylvania to the Habsburg Crown, and replacing the Transylvanian prince with a Habsburg-controlled governor. The age of the Habsburgs in the Hungarian lands began in the earnest with the final demise of Transylvania’s independence at the beginning of the eighteenth century.
