Summary expansion
Bánk bán (The viceroy) is a literary adaptation of the life of Bánk bán, a powerful Hungarian noble of the 13th century, viceroy to Andre II for a time during his reign of 30 years (1205-1235), viceroy of Croatia and Slavonia (1217-1218), and palatine of Hungary (1213-1220). He was seen as a statesman torn between loyalty to his king and loyalty to his compatriots who protested the rule of the German Gertrude of Merania, first wife of Andre II, and Queen of Hungary. Legends began to arise around the figure of Bánk bán during the second half of the 13th century. One of the characters of the play, Tiborc, a poor peasant, has remained a constant symbol of the oppressed. Katona's tragedy served as the basis of the libretto for Ferenc Erkel's famous opera of the same name of 1861 (description from Encyclopaedia Britannica (online))
