Hun-Scythian family

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

Si ca sa lamurim dau citatul din Herodotos un istoric grec care vorbea de limba scytilor .Gasiti pe wilkipedia "
Herodotus also gives a list of Scythian theonyms (Hist. 4.59):
• Tabiti = Hestia. Perhaps related to Sanskrit Tapatī, a heroine in the Mahābhārata, literally "the burning (one)".[20] IN LIMBA ROMANA =A TOPI
• Papaios = Zeus. Either "father" (Herodotus) or "protector", Avestan, Sanskrit pā- "protect", PIE *peh₃-.[21] IN LIMBA LATINA SI FRANCEZA PAPA=TATA
Cum a ajuns la francezi? posibil sarmatii si alanii care s-au stabilit in Franta.
• Api = Gaia. Either "mother"[22] or "water", Avestan, Sanskrit āp-, PIE Hep-[23]
Adica pe romaneste APA de baut , mai exista cuvantu APA si in sanscrita si lituaniana, persana, si celti =ABA.
• Goitosyros or Oito-syros = Apollo. Perhaps Avestan gaēθa- "animal" + sūra- "rich".[24] Traducere gresita SUROS este SURIA in sanscrita si SOARELE in romaneste.
• Argimpa-sa or Artimpasa = Aphrodite Urania. To Ossetic" art "and Pashto or, "fire", Avestan āθra-.[25] latia "arde" ca si in romaneste ARD, ARDERE.
Concluzia ar fi ca acesti SCYTI au o limba inrudita cu sanscrita adica indo-europeni.
Ungurii nu au o limba indo-europeana adica nu pot fi SCYTI.

Domnule/Doamna Anonim!
Daca trebuie sa dai cu parerea aici, de ce nu incerci sa scrii in engleza, nu un mix care nu se poate citi intre engleza si romana?
Originea limbii maghiare nu este unanim acceptata nici de comunitatea maghiara, sunt mai multe teorii, aceasta este una dintre ele. Dar e super daca altcineva stie mai bine.

Mr/Mrs Anonymous!
If you have to tell us your opinion, you should use only a single language: english. not to mix the two languages: romanian and english together, because your post cannot be read.
Fact is: There are more theories for the origins of the Hungarian language. The official one is not unanimously accepted .. as it has some holes in it. This theory is one of the alternatives

The Hungarian language is Finno-Ugric in origin; there is absolutely no doubt about this, and it is not a "theory," but obvious to any student of linguistics. Ethnically modern Hungarians are a mix of Slavs, Germans, Magyars, Jews, and Roma (+).

Very little evidence of relation between Huns and Scythians was mentioned here. It doesn't contradict the claims that Scythians belonged an Iranic-Aryan ethnic group. They spoke an Eastern Iranian language, and claimed to be the lords of Aryaveja (Expanse of Aryans[Iranians]). Based on their physical characteristics of having Red Hair, light colored eyes, and fair skin, they share nothing with turkic people, such as huns.

According to historians and archaeologists, the problem is that the Huns cremated their leaders; as a result, it is very difficult to collect reliable genetic material to establish their racial identity. Most researchers however, agree that the Huns were racially mixed stock assimilating various ethnic groups across Eurasia.

Being a nomadic people, not much written evidence survived their rules. The only solid evidence we have is the artifacts that Chinese, Russian and Hungarian archaeologists dug up in areas they once ruled.
