Magyars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2515 words)
The century between the Magyars' arrival from the eastern European plains and the consolidation of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1001 were dominated by pillaging campaigns across Europe, from Dania (Denmark) to the Iberian peninsula (Spain).
Magyar historians support the theory that the Magyars' percentage in the Carpathian Basin was at an almost constant 80% during the Middle Ages, and began to decrease only at the time of the Ottoman conquest, reaching as low as 39% in the end of the 18th century (or 29% according to historians outside Hungary).
In the 20th century the Magyar population of Hungary grew from 7,1 million (1920) to around 10,4 million (1980), in spite of the big human loss in the second world war and the wave of emigration after the failed revolution in 1956.
Magyars (174 words)
Magyars are the majority inhabitants of Hungary, while other groups of inhabitants lived or still live in Hungary as well.
The Magyar Leader Arpad[?] is considered to have founded Hungary in 896, and its stability was blessed by the Pope by crowning Stephen I (Szent István) in 1001 when the leaders accepted christianity.
The Magyars had recently arrived in Europe from Asia, partially from Khazaria, and were threatening and trying to subdue other Europeans.
