The second Peace of Pressburg (also known as the Treaty of Pressburg) is a peace treaty concluded in Pressburg (then known as Pozsony in Hungarian and now as Bratislava, Slovakia) that brought a resolution to the earlier Austrian-Hungarian War (1477-1488). It was signed on 7 November 1491 between Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor and King Vladislaus II of Bohemia and Hungary. Under this agreement, Vladislaus renounced his claim on Lower Austria and agreed that Maximilian should succeed to the Hungarian crown if Vladislaus left no legitimate male issue. Vladislaus did have a son in 1506 however, so this condition had no effect.

The assembly of nobility of the Kingdom of Hungary that led to the treaty had gathered a total of 63 dignitaries from the Kingdom of Bohemia and the Kingdom of Hungary.[1] The treaty reiterated an earlier agreement about royal succession that had been reached by Maximilian's father Friedrich III, Holy Roman Emperor with Mathias Corvinus.[2]
