The Siege of Pest (modern city of Budapest, Hungary) occurred in 1542, when Ferdinand of Austria attempted to recover the cities of Buda and Pest in 1542 from the Ottoman Empire.[1] This was an attempt to recover the cities of Buda and Pest following their occupation by the Ottomans since the Siege of Buda (1541).[2]

The siege was led by Joachim Brandenburg.[2] The siege was repulsed by the Ottomans, who would remain in control of central Hungary for the following 150 years.
