The issue of the Hun origin and the "Hun-Hungarian identity," or the awareness of a close relationship between Hungarians and Huns were so natural between the XI- XVI centuries that foreigners called Hungarians Huns. Medieval historians among them chronicler of King Bela III, Antonio Bonfini wholeheartedly believed in the Hun-Hungarian kinship.
According to ancient historians, King Árpád was the direct descendant of Attila the Hun and the Hungarian conquest (Honfoglalás) was the re-conquest of the land Huns owned before the death of King Attila. Historians considered the Székely people a Hun ethnic group that remained in Europe after the Huns withdrew from the Carpathian basin as their great empire decayed following the death of King Attila.

In 1052, German Emperor Henrik led his army against "Hunnorum"; in 1100, a source called Hungarian King St. László the king of the Huns and in 1113 the same source called Hungarian King Béla II "rex Hunnorum".
Heltai Gáspár writes in 1575: "Today, the Huns are called Hungarians". JW Valvasor writes in his famous book published in 1689 that "the Huns and Hungarians are the same people." Ipolyi Arnold, Arany János and Thierry Amade of France looked for the ancient Hun legacy in Hungarian folk tradition described in the Hun Chronicle, which is part of the ancient Illustrated Chronicle of Hungarians.
Huns artefacts are very similar to earlier Scythian and Hsiung-nu finds. Scythian-Hun-Hsiung-nu archaeological finds have been excavated all over Eurasia from the great wall of China to the Carpathian Basin.
Perhaps the best known archaeological finds of the Hun era are the two or four pieces of cast or annealed bronze cauldrons. The same kind of bronze cauldrons have been found in the Central Asian (Ordos Region) Hsiung-nu excavation sites in large numbers. The distribution of these artefacts reflects the extent of the reign of Hun and Hsiung-nu people throughout Asia. The exact same bronze cauldrons have been found in Törtel and Hőgyész, in Hungary.
More archaeological evidence of the Hun-Scythian-Hungarian ethnogenesis can be found in the Inner Mongolian Provincial Museum
