In 1570, John Sigismund Zápolya (John II) signed the Treaty of Speyer with Ferdinand's Habsburg successor, Maximilian II. John II again renounced his claim as King of Hungary in favour of Maximilian II, thus ending the Eastern Hungarian Kingdom. John instead was recognized by Maximilian II as "Prince of Transylvania and the Partium" (princeps Transsylvaniae et partium regni Hungariae dominus; that is, Prince of Transylvania and part of Hungary) from 1570 until his death (1571)
