Tisza, István, Count

Tisza, István, Count
born April 22, 1861, Budapest, Hung., Austrian Empire
died Oct. 31, 1918, Budapest

Hungarian politician.

He entered the Hungarian parliament in 1886 and joined his father, Tisza Kálmán, as a leader of the Liberal Party. A defender of the Austro-Hungarian dualist system of government and of Hungary's landed interests, he served as prime minister (1903–05, 1913–17). He opposed voting franchise reform and resigned over the king's 1917 decree for such reform. A supporter of the alliance with Germany in World War I, he was held responsible for his country's suffering and was assassinated by Magyar leftists.
