First English edition of the Nuremberg chronicle: being the Liber chronicarum of Dr. Hartmann Schedel…

Emperor Sigismund, son of Charles IV, a native Bohemian, but of German ancestry, reigned for fifty years with varying fortune; and he espoused his daughter Elizabeth to Albert, the duke of Austria, to whom he gave his entire sovereignty (as heretofore stated in this book where each man is considered at length according to his title and other matters; wherefore repetition is avoided). Once when Albert was at Ofen (Budapest) this occurred: The Judge of the city, a German, drowned a Hungarian for an offense. This angered the Hungarians who already hated the Germans very much; and a revolt ensued in which the Hungarians took up arms, slaying the Germans wherever they met them. Then followed a flight to the king at his castle. The houses of the merchants, most of whom were Germans, were destroyed. At this time there preached at Ofen one Jacobus Marchianus, a lecturer of the Franciscan Order, renowned for his scriptural wisdom and the piety of his life. In order to silence and squelch the revolt, he ran forth, crucifix in hand, to encounter the raging and armed people in order to deter them from murder and robbery. In tears he exhorted them to lay down their arms. Not understanding his words, but thinking that Christ had become their leader, they raised Jacobus and the crucifix on high, and raged through the city, plundering this house and that. However, through the opposition of Brother Jacobus they refrained from murder, for with pleadings and lamentations he sought to pacify the cruelties of the excited people. Not long thereafter King Albert passed away in death, leaving Elizabeth, his pregnant widow. The Hungarians considered it improper and dangerous that such a large kingdom should be subject to the rule and decisions of a woman; wherefore they strongly urged the queen to marry Wladislaus, the Polish king. She agreed, on condition however, that the step should not prejudice her son, should she bear one. Thereupon the prelates of the kingdom, and the foremost princes by birth and faith were sent to Poland. While on their way, Ladislaus was born, baptized at Stuhlweissenburg, invested with the girdle of knighthood, and crowned with the Hungarian crown, all on the same day. Thereafter his mother placed him and the Hungarian crown in the custody and care of Emperor Frederick; and Frederick kept Ladislaus for twelve years.
