Miklos Josika, baron, a Hungarian novelist, born in Torda, Transylvania, Sept. 28, 1796, died in Dresden, Feb. 27, 1865. He studied law, and early entered the Austrian army, which he left in 1818 with the rank of captain of cavalry. After the reunion of Transylvania with Hungary in the spring of 1848, he became a member of the upper house of the Hungarian diet, was a decided supporter of Kossuth, and on the resignation of the Bat-thyiinyi ministry was appointed member of the committee of defence. He followed the revolutionary government to Debreczin, and after its overthrow effected his escape to Brussels, where he resided till 1864, when he removed to Dresden. Condemned to death in his absence, he was hanged in effigy in Pesth in 1851. His works include A bqfi (1836); Az utolso Bathori ("The Last of the Bathoris"); A Csehek Magyarorszagban (" The Bohemians in Hungary "); Zrinyi a kolto (" Zrinyi the Poet"); Josika Istvan ("Stephen Josika"); Eszter (" Esther " ); and Masodik Rakoczi Fe-rencz (" Francis Rakoczy II.," 1861). All these, with others of his works, have been translated into German, partly by Klien, partly by the author's second wife Julia Podmaniczky, whom he married in 1847.
