The Battle of Temesvármarker (Romanian: Timişoara) was fought on August 9, 1849 between Austriamarker and Hungarian revolutionaries. The Austrians were led by Julius Jacob von Haynau, while the Hungarians were led by Józef Bem who arrived in the last instance from Transylvania. The Austrians were victorious.

The Hungarians had only their Southern-Hungarian division here, which was a little bit more numerous than the Austrian side, but lacked experience and good equipment. Henryk Dembinski, the earlier leader of this Hungarian division retreated from Szegedmarker just before the arrival of the army of Julius Jacob von Haynau, where the Hungarians had prepared pretty good defence lines. Henryk Dembinski was removed and Louis Kossuth asked Józef Bem to come and take the leadership. The Hungarians were staying at the stronghold of Temesvármarker (Romanian: Timişoara), which belonged to the Austrians when they were attacked from the castle too. The Hungarians did well for a while, but when Józef Bem accidentally fell from his horse they could not hold the Austrianmarker cavalry.
