English: György Dózsa (or, in some sources, György Székely; Romanian: Gheorghe Doja; (* Dálnok, 1470 † July 20, 1514) was a Székely man-at-arms (by some accounts a nobleman) from Transylvania who led a peasants' revolt against the Hungarian landed nobility. He was eventually caught, tortured, and executed along with his followers, and remembered as both a Christian martyr and a dangerous criminal.
