Tisza, Kálmán


Tisza, Kálmán
(1830–1902)
   Founder of the Hungarian Liberal Party, Tisza was born in December 1830 in Geszt, into a Calvinist family belonging to the Magyar gentry. In the revolution of 1848–1849, Tisza joined the revolutionary regime and was exiled by the Habsburg authorities after the Hungarian defeat. After his return to Hungary, he held an important position in the efforts to restore Hungarian autonomy within the Habsburg monarchy. Since 1875, Tisza supported the status quo of 1867, the Ausgleich between Hungary and Austria. He became the leader of the new Liberal Party, which represented the interests of the nobility, business elites, and landowners. Tisza was prime minister of Hungary from 1875 to 1890 during which the country was modernized. He died in March 1902.
