How did Hungary get its name?

The transformation of the Austrian Empire into Austria-Hungary dates from the 'Ausgleich' (usually tranlated as 'Compromise') of 1867. In 1866 Austria suffered a disastrous defeat at the hands of Prussia and was in effect expelled from Germany. There was a danger that the Hungarians, who had rebel…led in 1848-49, might again rise in rebellion against Habsburg rule. (That said, negotiations for some kind of autonomy for Hungary had been in progress before the war of 1866). This vast empire (the second largest state in Europe - after Russia) disintegrated in 1918. (MORE)

So they wish... But, no, Transylvania is an old Romanian province. For more than a thousand years the Hungarians are claiming this rich territory, this big part of Romania, trying everything in the middle (lobby, politics, extremism). In the time of Austro-Hungarian empire, they had Transylvania in …possession. Many Romanians were forced to change their religion (Greek Orthodox), to change their names in Hungarian ones and many were forced to flee or have been killed. The archaeological proves that the territory belongs to Romania were destroyed, Romanians had the same rights as slaves and it was forbidden to talk Romanian. But the whole pressure didn't get anywhere. Nowadays Hungarians learn in school that Transylvania was Hungarian territory. Hungarian politicians from Romanian are dreaming of a Hungarian autonomous region in the middle of Romania. The battle is not over yet... (MORE)

Stephen I of Hungary was named the first King of Hungary on January 1, 1001.
The land was occupied by the Magyars in 895, called the Conquest. They settled down in the Carpathian Basin and formed a state with the leadership of Stephen I (later Saint Stephen, in Hungarian Szent IstvÃ¡n). The Magyars gradually adjusted themselves to the people of Europe, which was a hard t…hing to do as previously the Magyars lead a half-nomadic way of life and were pagans. The first steps towards consolidation were made by Stephen's father, GÃ©za (who was the last Magyar prince) who called in feudal knights and missionaries from the west to help his people to change to Christianity. Stephen I (997-1038) was crowned with a crown received from the Pope in 1000, and he founded the Hungarian state. (MORE)

Hungary is a good choice for a character, as she is relativelysimple with many different possibilities. Firstly, decide on aversion of her character to cosplay. My sister does the versionwith the red skirt, but depending on what you have available, thegreen skirt or suit could be easier. As for her …hair, if your ownsuits, a little curling can make it perfect with little cost. Asfor wigs, there are some quality and cheap brown wigs on Amazon.For Hungary, do not go much lighter than a very dirty blonde. Justabout any sort of combat boots would work, but try to avoid heels,as they do not fit her character. Just about any dollar or craftstore sells silk flowers which can be glued to a wig, or pinned tonatural hair. Just about any simple green dress with a petticoatwould work. If it is an off shade, stained, patterned, etc, theapron will easily cover it or at least distract from it. At thispoint, the cosplay is complete. If you want to go the extra step,you can add props or contact lenses, but they are not completelynecessary. I hope this was helpful! (MORE)
