He started fighting the Turks as early as 1637 when he was given the position of the Military Cordon commander. He participated in the final battles of the Thirty Years' War and fought for Venice in the war between Venice and Turkey, as well as in numerous battles against the Turks. After the death of his brother, he was appointed ban of Croatia, and like him, he was extremely opposed to the policy of Vienna. He was supported only by Fran Krsto Frankopan, his wife's brother. When the emperor's troops defeated Frankopan's cavalry in April 1670, the uprising failed. Petar Zrinski was deposed as the ban of Croatia, and was summoned to Vienna with Frankopan by the emperor Leopold I who promised them pardon. However, they were imprisoned, charged with high treason and after a year in prison were put to death on April 30, 1671, in Wiener Neustadt, despite the disapproval of the Pope and many European rulers.
