Stephen II (Hungarian: II. István; 1101 – 1131), King of Hungary and Croatia, reigned from 1116 until 1131. His father, King Coloman, crowned him as a child, thereby preventing his uncle Álmos from claiming the throne. In the first year of his reign, Venice occupied Dalmatia, and Stephen never managed to reclaim control over the province. His rule was marked by frequent wars with neighboring countries.

Stephen II's reign witnessed some territorial expansion and efforts to strengthen royal authority, but it was also characterized by instability and internal conflicts. He died in 1131, leaving a legacy that included both accomplishments and significant challenges.
