Stefan Batory was born September 27, 1533, in Somlyo, Transylvania, to the local branch of the ancient Bathory family, now extinct, but originally almost coeval with the Hungarian monarchy. Bathory had the merit of being a ruler of Transylvania, a state where freedom of religion was introduced already in 1568.

After the heirless death of King Sigismund II of Poland in 1572, his spinster sister Anna Jagiellonka became the sole heir to the Crown of Poland. Due to the conflict with her late brother (over his marriage with Barbara Radziwillowna), she remained single and became one of the most influential personalities in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.   The Polish Senate (Sejm), after a heated discussion,  decided that Anna Jagiellonka would be elected king of Poland and chose Stefan Batory as her husband that same day.
On May 1, 1576 Batory married Anna Jagiellonka and became the ruler of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, at the time the largest and one of the most populous states in Europe. Upon coronation, his official titles were Stefan, by the grace of God King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania, Duke of Ruthenia, Prussia, Masovia, Samogitia, Kiev Land, Volhynia, Podlachia and Livonia, as well as Prince of Transylvania.
