He began his career in bmols an assistant clerk in the Hungarian government’s Ministry of Culture and Education, by was an assistant secretary. Three years later he reached the rank of ministerial secretary, having been commissioner of education for Pest County.
Hungary did not abandon the idea of reuniting the ” Lands of the Crown of Saint Stephen ” after the Treaty of Trianon.
It absorbed parts of southern Czechoslovakia, Carpathian Ruthenia and the northern part of Transylvaniawhich the Kingdom of Romania ceded. The support that Hungary received from Germany for these border revisions meant that the relationship lakatps the two countries became even closer. To simplify the planned invasion of Greece, Germany and Italy wanted to neutralize Yugoslavia.
They further explained that while they understood that Hungary and other smaller nations were in extremisBritain was trying to extend a level of “understanding and patience” with them beyond usual diplomatic practice. Consistent with their practice of making conflicting promises to different countries, the Germans replied that German recognised Hungary’s revisionist claims, and that the assurances offered to the Yugoslavs would not interfere with them.
In early March, Teleki wrote a long memorandum regarding the expectations that the British and Americans could have of Hungary.
He saw his chief responsibility as conserving Hungary’s resources to the end of the war, and listed the dangers she faced, one of which was that from Yugoslavia, despite the recently signed Treaty of Friendship. He described as unreasonable the British expectation that small nations such as Hungary should oppose Germany.
Despite this, he listed a number of ways in which Hungary had held firm against unreasonable German demands, including her refusal to let German troops transit through Hungary to attack Poland in In communications with his ambassador in London he accused the British of “malice” and “considerable ignorance”, and may have allowed his dislike of his ambassador to colour his assessment of the British position. On 12 March, Teleki wrote to his ambassador in London, upbraiding the British for “reproaching others for non-resistance”, and claiming that the British had failed to bring the nations in the Balkans and Danube basin together, whereby they may have been able to resist the Germans.
The ambassador did not receive the letter until late March, and when he went to visit Eden, the Foreign Secretary told him that he expected that Teleki would have to succumb to German pressure sooner or later, but warned that Hungary would have to face the “gravest consequences” if she allowed German troops to pass through her territory to attack a country allied with Britain, and that even worse consequences would accrue if Hungary joined in any such attack.
On 25 March, the Yugoslavs acceded to the Tripartite Pact, but two days later the Yugoslav government was overthrown by a military coup. Hitler told him that: In a letter, he only promised that the Hungarian army would cooperate with the Germans and refuted Hitler’s offer about Croatia.
The same day, Hungary’s ministerial council met to discuss the conditions under which the Hungarian army could move into the Yugoslav territories formerly part of Hungary. They agreed this could occur if one of the following conditions were met: The following day, the Hungarian ambassador in London asked for clarification as to whether, in case of a German attack on Yugoslavia, Hungary would uphold the Treaty of Eternal Friendship.
The Hungarian high command believed that the Germans needed evidence of Hungary’s friendship, and, contradicting the conditions already set, agreed that Hungarian forces could operate outside former Hungarian territories within Yugoslavia. Horthy called a meeting of the Supreme Defence Council on 1 April. He said that Germany should be told this, and that any Hungarian action would be independent of the Germans. Teleki then spoke, reminding those present of the enormous resources of Britain and the United States, and saying that Hungary should not take action they would consider unacceptable.
On 2 April, the British warned the Hungarian ambassador that if Hungary allowed the transit of the Germans through her territory to attack Yugoslavia, Britain would break off diplomatic relations.
They also cautioned Hungary that if she joined the attack on Yugoslavia under any pretext, she must expect Britain and her allies to declare war, and if that occurred, could expect to be treated appropriately should the Allies be victorious. The British observed that Hungary had renounced its claims on Yugoslav territory when it signed the Treaty of Friendship, and that any attack on Yugoslavia would be a flagrant breach of the treaty. These warnings were passed on to levejte Hungarian government by telegram.
When Hitler requested clearance to launch one of his armoured thrusts against Yugoslavia using Hungarian territory, Teleki was unable to dissuade the Regent. Concluding that Hungary had disgraced itself irrevocably by siding with the Germans against the Yugoslavs, Teleki shot himself on 3 April.

On 6 April, Bojls invaded Yugoslavia. On 7 April, Yugoslav bombers of British-design launched levvente on Hungarian airfields and railway stations.
One of the targets was an airfield near Szegedbut when the Yugoslav aircraft found it empty, they dropped their bombs on the railway network. Both bomber formations were almost completely destroyed by German fighter aircraft and Hungarian anti-aircraft fire. These brigades then drove southeast to capture the Serbian town of Valjevo a day later.
Even so, Churchill did not declare war on Hungary for some months, despite Eden and Stalin urging him to do so. Afterwards, Hungarian troops occupied parts of Yugoslav territory that had formerly belonged to Hungary prior to the Treaty of Trianon, and these lakatps were subsequently annexed by Hungary.
On 22 JuneGermany attacked the Soviet Union. One bomb failed to explode and was found to be of Soviet origin. The Hungarian military concluded that the Soviet Union was responsible this was denied, and the question of responsibility has never been satisfactorily resolved. In late NovemberBritain delivered an ultimatum to Hungary, stating that if it did not withdraw its forces from the Soviet Union by 5 December, Britain would declare war.
The following day, the Japanese launched their attack on Pearl Harbor. Four days later, Germany declared war on the United States. In an attempt to avoid a declaration of war, the Council of Ministers proposed breaking off diplomatic relations and expressing solidarity with the Axis powers.
This did not satisfy the Germans or Italians, who made their expectations clear.
He fled from Szombathely due to Soviet advance in Hungary and moved initially to Bavariathen to Innsbruck. He obtained entry visa to Switzerland in 24 April and lived briefly in a refugee camp. However, the Swiss government deported him back to Germany on 4 May He was immediately arrested by Americans. He was found guilty of war crimes and collaboration with the Nazis, sentenced to death, and executed by firing squad in Budapest in 10 January Despite the importance of Britain, he did not really understand the British, and was “rather contemptuous, dismissive and at times condescending” towards them.
His poor relationship with his ambassador to London probably contributed to this.
He maintained Teleki’s foreign policy priorities without fully identifying with them. His appointment as prime minister was much more acceptable to the Germans than Keresztes-Fischer.
His accusation that the British had bombed Hungary on 7 April was one of several significant political blunders, as was the announcement of a state of war with the Soviet Union in Juneand with the United States in December From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
