...Mongol invasions and conquests progressed
throughout the 13th century, resulting in the vast Mongol Empire,
which, by 1300, covered much of Asia and Eastern Europe.
This Empire unified Mongol and Turkic tribes of historical Mongolia
under the leadership of Genghis Khan, who was proclaimed ruler of
all Mongols in 1206.
Historians regard the Mongol raids and invasions as some of the
deadliest conflicts in human history.

According to Brian Landers, "One empire in particular exceeded any
that had gone before, and crossed from Asia into Europe in an orgy
of violence and destruction. The Mongols brought terror to Europe
on a scale not seen again until the twentieth century."
The Mongols invaded and destroyed Volga Bulgaria and Kievan Rus',
before invading Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria, and others. Over the
course of three years (1237–1240), the Mongols destroyed and
annihilated all of the major cities of Eastern Europe with the
exceptions of Novgorod and Pskov.
This Conquest stretched from Central Europe to the Sea of Japan,
extending northwards into Siberia, eastwards and southwards into the
Indian subcontinent, Indochina, and the Iranian plateau, and
westwards as far as the Levant and Arabia.
So am I of a Hungarian blood line, or that of the
Khan's Mongolian blood ? I also am descendant of Irish,
English & Scottish, and that of Portuguese from the Azorean Island,
however who really discovered the Azorean Islands and who were its
first inhabitants, and before 29 Apr 1793, when my 4th great
grandfather was born, where did his parents live before, if not the
Azorean Island ?

Origin of Hungarians - Hungary 101
The former Austro-Hungarian Monarchy was
divided after World War I. The consequence of the Treaty of Trianon
following World War I, was that Hungarian property was reduced to one-third
of her pre-war geographic area. Hungarian territories were allotted to
Austria (Burgenland area) Czechoslavakia (now Slavakia), Romania (including
the former Transylvania), and Yugoslavia.
Lyrics - "Isten, áldd meg a magyar"
With good cheer and prosperity.
Extend a protective arm
If they fight the enemy.
Torn by misfortune for long,
Give them happy years.
These people have expiated
The past and the future.
By Thy help our fathers gained
Kárpát's proud and sacred height;
Here by Thee a home obtained
Heirs of Bendegúz, the knight.
Where'er Danube's waters flow
And the streams of Tisza swell
Árpád's children, Thou dost know,
Flourished and did prosper well.
For us let the golden grain
Grow upon the fields of Kún,
And let Nectar's silver rain
Ripen grapes of Tokay soon.
Thou our flags hast planted o'er
Forts where once wild Turks held sway;
Proud Vienna suffered sore
From King Mátyás' dark array.
But, alas! for our misdeed,
Anger rose within Thy breast,
And Thy lightnings Thou did'st speed
From Thy thundering sky with zest.
Now the Mongol arrow flew
Over our devoted heads;
Or the Turkish yoke we knew,
Which a free-born nation dreads.
O, how often has the voice
Sounded of wild Osman's hordes,
When in songs they did rejoice
O'er our heroes' captured swords!
Yea, how often rose Thy sons,
My fair land, upon Thy sod,
And Thou gavest to these sons,
Tombs within the breast they trod!
Though in caves pursued he lie,
Even then he fears attacks.
Coming forth the land to spy,
Even a home he finds he lacks.
Mountain, vale - go where he would,
Grief and sorrow all the same -
Underneath a sea of blood,
While above a sea of flame.
'Neath the fort, a ruin now,
Joy and pleasure erst were found,
Only groans and sighs, I trow,
In its limits now abound.
But no freedom's flowers return
From the spilt blood of the dead,
And the tears of slavery burn,
Which the eyes of orphans shed.
Pity, God, the Magyar, then,
Long by waves of danger tossed;
Help him by Thy strong hand when
He on grief's sea may be lost.
Fate, who for so long did'st frown,
Bring him happy times and ways;
Atoning sorrow hath weighed down
All the sins of all his days.
