Life[edit]

He served as prime minister for a few months during World War I, after the fall of István Tisza. His attempts at reform were defeated by Tisza's conservative forces, and he quickly resigned, to be replaced by the weak administration of Sándor Wekerle.

Móric Esterházy was the grandfather of football player Márton Esterházy (1956– ) and writer Péter Esterházy (1950–2016).
