#186/365 Who is he?

Whenever I walk pass this building, the town hall, I study the details bit by bit. This time I found him plastered on the right "wing" of this structure. With this, I zoomed and read the text :  Rákóczi.
So, time for me to learn more about the Hungarian history.

Wiki :-

Francis II Rákóczi (name in Hungarian Rákóczi Ferenc)
27 March 1676 in Borsi, Royal Hungary – 8 April 1735 in Tekirdag, Ottoman Empire
was a Hungarian aristocrat and leader of the Hungarian uprising against the Habsburgs in 1703-11.

Thanks reader Sala for the correction :)
