Hungary 500 forint, 2006

Ferenc II Rákóczi (27 March 1676 – 8 April 1735) Hungarian aristocrat, he was the leader of the Hungarian uprising against the Habsburgs in 1703-11 as the prince (fejedelem) of the Estates Confederated for Liberty of the Kingdom of Hungary. He was also Prince of Transylvania, an Imperial Prince, and a member of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Today he is considered a national hero in Hungary.

I've got this commemorative (50th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956) banknote in Pécs, Hungary.
