Andrássy Gyula, Count

Andrássy Gyula, Count
born March 3, 1823, Kassa, Hung., Austrian Empire
died Feb. 18, 1890, Volosco, Istria, Austria-Hungary

Hungarian politician.

A follower of Kossuth Lajos, Andrássy helped lead the unsuccessful revolt of 1848–49, then fled into exile until 1857. He supported the creation of the Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary and played a major role in negotiating the Compromise of 1867. He served as Hungary's first prime minister (1867–71) and later as foreign minister (1871–79), in which he helped strengthen Austria-Hungary's international position. Just before resigning, he signed the fateful Austro-German Alliance (1879) that linked those two powers until the end of World War I.
