Congress of Visegrád (1335)

The first Congress of Visegrád was a 1335 summit in Visegrád in which Casimir III of Poland, Charles I of Hungary, and John I of Bohemia formed an anti-Habsburg alliance. The three leaders agreed to create new commercial routes to bypass the staple port Vienna and obtain easier access to other European markets. John gave up his claims to the Polish throne in exchange for 20,000 Prague groschen and the recognition of his suzerainty over Silesia.

A second meeting took place in 1339, where the new king of Poland was decided upon.
