Baron Dániel Esterházy de Galántha (26 July 1585 – 14 June 1654) was a Hungarian noble, son of Vice-ispán (Viscount; vicecomes) of Pozsony County Ferenc Esterházy. He was the founder of the Csesznek branch of the House of Esterházy.[1] His brother was, among others, Nikolaus, Count Esterházy who served as Palatine of Hungary.

Life[edit]

He participated in Bocskay's War of Independence at the age of twenty. Later, he was a supporter of Gabriel Bethlen, Prince of Transylvania. As a result, he had a conflict with his brother, Nikolaus (Miklós). However Bethlen imprisoned him because of his sympathy for Palatine György Thurzó's royalist party. Dániel escaped from the prison.

Dániel was created Baron in 1613. In 1635, King Ferdinand II gave him the castle of Csesznek which was then a stronghold of Győr (Raab). Baron Dániel founded the Csesznek branch.[2]
