About Jelena - Helen - Ilona of Hungary Vukanović (Nemanjić), Queen consort

Helena of Raška, (after 1109 – after 1146), Queen Consort of Hungary.

Helena was the daughter of Duke Uroš I of Raška and his wife, Anna. Around 1129, King Stephen II of Hungary arranged her marriage with his cousin Béla, who had been blinded on the order of the king's father, King Coloman of Hungary. The king granted estates near Tolna to the couple.

Following the childless king's death, her husband was crowned King of Hungary on 28 April 1131. Helena exerted material influence over her blind husband during his reign.

Јелена Вукановић (мађ. Ilona királyné), (р. после 1109 - † после 1161) је била ћерка Уроша I Вукановића великог жупана Рашке и његове супруге Ане[1] и супруга мађарског краља Беле II Слепог[2].

Биографија:

Око 1129. године краљ Стефан II Мађарски је договорио са Урошем I венчање свог рођака Беле и Урошеве ћерке Јелене. Краљ је новом брачном пару дао поседе на управљање у околини Толне. После смрти Стефан II, Бела је крунисан 28. априла 1131. године за краља Мађарске. Јелена и Бела су имали шесторо деце: Гезу, Ласла II, Стефана IV, Алмоша[3] Жофију[4] и Гертруду.

Јелена је била велика помоћ своме мужу у управљању државом током његове владавине[3]. Била је веома верна свом мужу и држави, између осталог она је била та која је 1131. године на државном савету у Араду потенцирала егзекуцију 68 члана мађарске аристократије која је саветовала краља Калмана да ослепи њеног мужа. Према изворима егзекуцији је присуствовао краљ Бела и Јелена, која је била тамо да би била сигурна да су непријатељи њеног супруга кажњени.

Јеленин супруг, краљ Бела II је умро 1141. године и на преесто је дошао њихов најстарији син Геза II. Међутим Јелена је задржала велики утицај у влади и уз помоћ свога брата Белоша је одржавала добре односе и мир на јужним границама краљевства[1]. У овом периоду после смрти краља Беле, покварили су се немачко—мађарски односи и раскинута је веридба Хенрика и Жофије, Јеленине ћерке[5]. Из овог разлога Жофија се замонашила и постала опатица у манастиру Адмонт.[4]

У време Гезине владавине Стефан и Ласло нису били задовољни са титулама и поседима које су имали, па су потражили помоћ код царева Светог римског царства и византијских царева. За време Гезиног живота и владавине ове сплетке нису имале успеха, али је након Гезине смрти 1161. године Манојло I Комнин видео добар моменат да прошири византијски утицај у Мађарској. Помогао је да се са трона скине Стефан III а на његово место поставе прво Ласло II па после њега на кратко време Стефана IV. Ипак и поред свега Стефан III је 1163. године успео да поврати и осигура престо[6][7].

Краљица Јелена је умрла 1161. године.
