Sobre o livro
The Discontented tells the heroic story of the Hungarian uprisings against the Habsburgs in 17th and 18th centuries.
Led by the charismatic trio of Imre Thököly, Helena Zrinyi and Ferenc Rákóczi II, there were moments when the rebels nearly succeeded in securing the independence of Hungary from the Habsburg Emperors.
However, against a background of international intrigue and superpower politics, the valiant actions of thekurucs were ultimately doomed and their leaders forced into exile in Turkey.
Here is a tale of hubris, betrayal, love and reckless courage that remains inspirational centuries later.
