Miklós Jósika, Baron

Jósika, Miklós, Baron (bäˈrōn mĭkˈlōsh yōˈshĭkŏ) [key], 1794–1865, Hungarian novelist and patriot. The originator of the Hungarian historical novel, he was often superficial and inaccurate, but was nevertheless responsible for a renewed interest in Hungary's history. His many novels include Abafi (1836) and Az utólsó Bátory (1840). Forced to flee abroad after his part in the unsuccessful revolution of 1848–49, he directed the central office of Polish émigrés in Brussels.
