Végrehajtott Udvardy or Udvardy the Executed was a martyr in Hercegfalva. When the Emperor ordered the massacre of innocent defaulters, Udvardy intervened and told the Emperor that despite his years of reign, he never paid the rent to God and hence couldn't take away lives of the poor, just because they were among the common people. He was executed by Emperor Alexios I in 1557. For a long time, the loss of the Empire was attributed to the curse of Udvardy.
