History: Magyars

Posted on Sun 20 August 2023 in history

Western Asia- The Magyars were encouraged to attack the Bulgars by the Byzantine emperors, while the Bulgars urged the Pechenegs to attack the Magyars. The Magyars were eventually forced into eastern and central Europe by the Pecheneg pressure. The Magyars built a strong presence in Hungary and made many raids on Germany, France and Italy, until they were defeated at the Battle of Lechfeld in Germany, 955 CE. The Magyars were converted to Christianity in the tenth century, and later they established the kingdom of Hungary.
