Who was the leader of Hungary during World War 2?
(Admiral) Miklos Horthy (1868-1957) was nominally the Regent of Hungary from 1920-44, and for most purposes the dictator. In 1944 he was kidnapped by the SS and taken to Bavaria because he tried to negotiate a separate peace with the Soviet Union. The 100% Nazi 'Arrow' Party then seized power and continued fighting. Hungary was an Axis country and therefore on the German side.
