    Vazul [Basil] (11th century) was a Hungarian noble of the Árpád family. He was the grandson of Taksony by his father Michael. His brother was Ladislaus the Bald. He was a cousin of Stephen I of Hungary. He took part in a conspiration aiming the murder of king Stephen, since he was excluded from the royal succession in favour of Pietro Orseolo. The assassination attempt failed. Vazul had his eyes gouged out and molten lead poured in his ears; his sons were exiled. Surprisingly,Vazul survived.
    Of Vazul's three sons, András, Béla and Levente, two would ascend the throne after the dynastic struggle following the death of Stephen I. The line of Árpád kings following Stephen is therefore referred to as the Vazul line.
