Sigismund Bathory,  was elected prince of Transylvania in 1581at the age of 9, so the government was entrusted to a regency until 1588. He's decision to join the league of Christian princes against the Ottomans is very criticized by his opponents who threatened him with deposition. After letting his cousin Bathory Boldizsar to rule for a short while, He returns and he executes most of his opponents.  In April 1598 Sigismund resigned again as prince of Transylvania in favor of Emperor Rudolf II, reversed his decision in October 1598, and then resigned again in favor of Cardinal Andrew Bathory , his cousin. In February 1601 the diet of Cluj (Klausenburg) reinstated him, but again he was driven out by Michael the Brave and general Giorgio Basta, never to return. He died at Prague in 1613.
Sigismund Bathori a devenit principe al Transilvaniei cand avea doar 9 ani, dar a putut ocupa tronul principatului numai in 1588. Dupa ce a decis sa participe la razboi impotriva Imperiului Otoman, abdica din cauza celor din princpat care se opun aliantei cu Liga Sfanta, tronul fiind ocupat de varul lui Bathory Boldizsar. Se intoarce dupa scurt timp si ii executa pe majoritatea celor care i s-au opus. In aprilie 1598 abdica din nou, in octombrie se intoarce dupa care abdica din nou in favoarea cardinalului Andrei Bathory. Este repus in drepturi in febr. 1601 de catre dieta din Cluj, dar a fost obligat de catre Mihai Vieazul si Giorgio Basta sa renunte din nou, de data asta definitiv.
