Context

John Zápolya suppresses a peasants' revolt in Transylvania, then part of Hungary. This movement, led by George Dozsa, came about when Dozca, a Transylvanian nobleman, mustered a group of approximately 100 000 volunteers for a papally sponsored crusade against the Ottomans. However, this 100 000 consisted primarily of peasants and other low-ranking members of society, who began to air their grievances and soon erupted into revolt against the landowning ranks.
