Conflict with John Hunyadi
It is not known if Vladislav II had been invited to take part in the Battle of Kosovo (1448) or not. It is certain however that he didn't send any troops in aid and as a result, John Hunyadi took back the Transylvanian possessions of Făgăraș and Amlaș on 23 April 1452. Vladislav retaliated by embargoing all Wallachian trade to Brasov county, then part of Hunyadi's Transylvania. However, on 15 November 1455, after Hunyadi informed the people of Brasov that the embargo would be lifted, Vladislav seized back Transylvanian possessions, and attacked the Făgăraș fortress and in the process burns a few Saxon villages. In response, Hunyadi gives Vlad III; a son of the rival Drăculești house of Basarab (the future Vlad the Impaler) military support and, with the help of the Saxons whose villages were burned down, disposed Vladislav II.
