Árpád (c. 845 – c. 907), the second Grand Prince of the Magyars (Hungarians) (c. 895 – c. 907). Under his rule the Magyar people settled in the Carpathian basin. The dynasty descending from him ruled the Magyar tribes and later the Kingdom of Hungary until 1301.

His life

Árpád and the six other chieftains of the Magyars. From the Chronicon Pictum, 1360.

Árpád was the son of Grand Prince Álmos (Grand Prince of the Magyars), leader of the Hungarian tribal federation; his mother's name and descent is unknown[1].

The emergence of the Magyar tribes and their leaders is a specific period in the history of the Hungarian people that refers to the time starting from when the Magyars were considered a people separate and identifiable from other Ugric speakers (1000-500 BC) up until their occupation and settlement of the Carpathian Basin around 896 AD (Hungarian: Honfoglalás)[2].

In 894, Árpád and Kurszán negotiated together with the representatives of the Byzantine emperor, Leo VI the Wise the terms under which the confederation of the Magyar tribes was willing to assist the Byzantine Empire against Emperor Simeon I of Bulgaria.

In the spring of next year, the Magyar tribes attacked the Bulgarian Empire and defeated Emperor Simeon I, obliging him to conclude peace with the Byzantine Empire. Emperor Simeon, however, entered into an alliance with the Pechenegs, who were the eastern neighbours of the Hungarian tribal federation, and he made an attack against the Magyar troops. In the Battle of Southern Buh, Emperor Simeon I defeated their army; shortly afterwards, the Pechenegs attacked and pillaged their territories. The Magyar tribes were obliged to leave Etelköz and move to the Carpathian Basin where they settled down (Honfoglalás).

The Magyars led by Árpád crossing the Carpathians - a detail of the Arrival of the Hungarians by Árpád Feszty et al. oil on canvas cyclorama (Ópusztaszer National Memorial Site, Hungary)

The circumstances of Álmos' death are unclear. The leaders of the seven Hungarian tribes proclaimed Árpád to Grand Prince of the Magyars[3]; therefore Árpád is considered traditionally to lead the Honfoglalás ("the occupation of the country")[4].

In 896 the Hungarian tribes occupied the Upper Tisza river, from there they undertook numerous looting raids in central and western Europe, and in 900/901 they moved to Pannonia[5]. The Magyars entering the Pannonian fields in 896 may have represented about 200,000–250,000 people.

Based on Arabic sources, Árpád's title seems to have been kende[6] or gyula. In that time kende was the spiritual leader of the Magyar tribes, while the gyula led their military campaigns. According to legends, Árpád hold the first "parliamentary" session with 40 other "nobles" on horseback before 900 AD.

Monument of Árpád in Ópusztaszer, Hungary

Although the founder of the Kingdom of Hungary was not Árpád (as he lived a century earlier) - but his descendant Saint Stephen I –, he is generally thought of as the forefather of Hungarians and is often affectionally mentioned as our father Árpád (Hungarian: Árpád apánk). Árpád was the founder of the dynasty named after him, which would rule over the kingdom of Hungary till 1301.

Árpád nagyfejedelem [szerkesztés]

Ez az utolsó megtekintett változat (összes); elfogadva: 2009. július 5.

A Wikipédiából, a szabad enciklopédiából.

Családja és utódai [szerkesztés]

Felesége nevét nem őrizte meg a történetírás. Öt fiának neve maradt fenn:

  1. Liüntika/Levente,
  2. Tarhacsi/Tarhos,
  3. Jelek/Üllő,
  4. Jutocsa/Jutas és
  5. Zolta.

Mind az ötöt Bíborbanszületett Konstantin hagyományozta ránk, azonban két különböző helyen. Az egyik helyen, ahol a honfoglalásról és a kalandozásokról van szó, említi Liüntikát, aki ekkor nyilván a legidősebb, felnőtt fiú lehetett. Egy másik helyen, ahol a fiait és az ő korabeli utódaikat sorolja fel, nem említi Liüntikát, csak a négy másikat, és azoknak is csak egy-egy fiát. Nyilván itt csak az utódlás szempontjából fontos utódokról van szó. Liüntikának, úgy tűnik nem maradt Konstantin idejére fiúutóda.

A legendák Árpádja [szerkesztés]

A Millenneumi emlékmű középső csoportja Árpádot és a hét vezért ábrázolja. Zala György szobrászművész alkotásai.

A krónikáink szerint a hun Aetilea/Attila/Atilla/Etele szépunokája; Ernák/Irnik ükunokája; Ed dédunokája; Ügyek és Emese unokája, Álmos vezér gyermeke.

Mivel Anonymus Árpád halálát 907-re teszi[5], örökösének pedig a legfiatalabb Zoltát nevezi meg, kialakult egy olyan elképzelés, amely szerint Árpád és három idősebb fia (Tarhos, Jelek/Üllő, Jutocsa/Jutas) a pozsonyi csatában estek el. Erre azonban nincs egyértelmű bizonyíték. A legenda szerint Óbudán temették el a honfoglaló hadvezért és fejedelmet.

The Magyar tribes were obliged to leave Etelköz and move to the Carpathian Basin where they settled down (Honfoglalás).


The circumstances of Álmos' death are unclear. The leaders of the seven Hungarian tribes proclaimed Árpád to Grand Prince of the Magyars; therefore Árpád is considered traditionally to lead the Honfoglalás ("the occupation of the country").

In 896 the Hungarian tribes occupied the Upper Tisza river, from there they undertook numerous looting raids in central and western Europe, and in 900/901 they moved to Pannonia. The Magyars entering the Pannonian fields in 896 may have represented about 200,000–250,000 people.

Based on Arabic sources, Árpád's title seems to have been kende or gyula. In that time kende was the spiritual leader of the Magyar tribes, while the gyula led their military campaigns. According to legends, Árpád hold the first "parliamentary" session with 40 other "nobles" on horseback before 900 AD.

Although the founder of the Kingdom of Hungary was not Árpád (as he lived a century earlier) - but his descendant Saint Stephen I –, he is generally thought of as the forefather of Hungarians and is often affectionally mentioned as our father Árpád (Hungarian: Árpád apánk). Árpád was the founder of the dynasty named after him, which would rule over the kingdom of Hungary till 1301.

His life

Árpád was the son of Grand Prince Álmos (Grand Prince of the Magyars), leader of the Hungarian tribal federation ; his mother's name and descent is unknown.

The emergence of the Magyar tribes and their leaders ("Hungarian prehistory ") (Hungarian : magyar őstörténet) is a specific period in the history of the Hungarian people that refers to the time starting from when the Magyars were considered a people separate and identifiable from other Ugric speakers (1000-500 BC) up until their occupation and settlement of the Carpathian Basin around 896 AD (Hungarian : Honfoglalás).

In 894, Árpád and Kurszán negotiated together with the representatives of the Byzantine emperor , Leo VI the Wise the terms under which the confederation of the Magyar tribes was willing to assist the Byzantine Empire against Emperor Simeon I of Bulgaria .

In the spring of next year, the Magyar tribes attacked the Bulgarian Empire and defeated Emperor Simeon I, obliging him to conclude peace with the Byzantine Empire. Emperor Simeon, however, entered into an alliance with the Pechenegs , who were the eastern neighbours of the Hungarian tribal federation, and he made an attack against the Magyar troops.

Høvding over ungarerne 896 - 907.

Arpad ble prins av Ungarn omkring 894. Han var den første ungarske storfyrste og magjarernes anfører da de ved år 900 erobret Ungarn. Fra ham nedstammer de senere konger av Ungarn like ned til Andreas III (1000 - 1301) som derfor kalles «Arpader».

Arpaderslekten var konger av Ungarn 997 - 1301.

Arpad betegnes som en noe dunkel historisk person. Han skal ha fullført magjarernes utbredelse til platået ved midtre Donau som begynte under Almos (800 - 844). Den siste kalles en halvt legendarisk person. Arpad skal stamme fra Attila som ble konge over hunnerne i 401.

Etter Ludvig «den Tyske»'s død ble ungarerne eller madjarene stadig farligere og mer pågående, og til slutt sto østfrankerne fullstendig vergeløse overfor dem. Ungarerne var et folk som var beslektet med hunnerne og tilhørte den finsk-ugriske folkestammen. Fra sine opprinnelige boplasser ved Volga hadde de på 800-tallet dratt vestover og slått seg ned på slettene omkring Donau og Theiss. Der ble de etterhånden mer og mer plagsomme for alle nabolandene, det østromerske rike, Tyskland og Italia. Ungarerne var et halvvilt nomadefolk som bodde i telt om sommeren og i sivhytter om vinteren, og det gikk de forferdeligste rykter om at de pleide å rive hjertet ut av brystet på sine falne fiender for å spise det og siden drikke blodet deres. Ypperlige ryttere og sikre skyttere som de var, pleide de å bringe forvirring i fiendens rekker ved lynsnare, overraskende angrep, for så å sende en skur av piler mot dem. Ved å late som om de flyktet, fikk de lokket fienden ut av sine faste stillinger, men så kunne plutselig en sterk reserve av ungarere bryte fram fra et bakhold og kaste seg over forfølgerne. Det var forferdelig å se disse hardbarkede krigerne når «synsranden med ett ble formørket av deres rytterskarer og tusenere av hjelmer dukket opp som av et avgrunnsdyp». Herjende, plyndrende og brennende stormet disse hordene fram og spredte død og fordervelse hvor de kom. Fra begynnelsen av 900-tallet var Tyskland i flere decennier fullstendig prisgitt dette halvville folket som ikke hadde noen forståelse for kulturelle verdier. Helt opp til Bremen i nord og til Roma og Syd-Italia i syd våget de seg. Flere ganger satte de til og med over Rhinen, på flåter som de bygget av tømmer fra Schwarzwald, og hjemsøkte Frankrike.
