Magyar/Avar/Hun Information
Source: Wikipedia,

Magyars are the majority inhabitants of Hungary, while other groups of inh
abitants lived or still live in Hungary as well. In English they are usual ly
called Hungarians, except in some historical texts. Since 1918-1920 Ju ne 4
some Magyars became the minority inhabitants of Romania (2million), C
zechoslovakia (600.000) now Czech Republic and Slovakia, Yugoslavia (400.0 00)
now Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia, Ukraine (170.000).

The Magyar Leader Arpad is considered to have founded Hungary in 896, a nd its
stability was blessed by the Pope by crowning Stephen I (Szent Istv án) in
1001 when the leaders accepted christianity. The Magyars had recent ly arrived
in Europe from Asia, partially from Khazaria, and were threaten ing and trying
to subdue other Europeans.

Hungary received its name from the Magyars bulgarian name: Ungur (slaw: Ve
ngry german: Ungarn), meaning "ten tribes" Another opinion is that they g ot
their name from the similar semi-nomadic tribe: the Hun's, who lived ce
nturies earlier in the same territory. Calling today's inhabitants Magya rs or
Hungarians is considered equally correct. Hungarians call themselv es only
"Magyar", never "Hun" or "Hungarian".

Western view
The Huns are thought by many historians to be the first Turkic people ment
ioned in history. References in Chinese sources to a people called the Xio
ngnu (Hsiung-nu) go back to 1200 BC, and these people may be the ancesto rs of
the later, better-known (to western scholars) Huns, though not all s cholars

A group called the European Huns and led by Attila the Hun is considere d,
with little certainty, to be the western extension of the Huns. Establi shment
of the first Hun state is one of the first well-documented appearan ces of the
culture of horseback migration in history. These tribespeople a chieved
superiority over their rivals, most of whom were highly culture d, by the help
of their splendid state of readiness and amazing mobilit y. According to
traditional Hungarian history, the Huns, Magyars, and Ava rs were all part of
the same people.

Subsequently the term "Huns" became a derogatory term for Germans. It w as
common among the Allied Forces during World War I and World War II, b ut this
usage has declined recently.

Eastern and Chinese view
The earliest reference in Chinese sources to a people called the Xiongnu (
Hsiung-nu) goes back to early 12th century BC , in writings about the camp
aign by King Wuding (?? wu3 ding1) of the Shang Dynasty against the Gui Fa ng
?? (gui3 fang1) tribe, which is regarded as another name of the Huns. T his
account is supported by some vague archeological sources but has y et to be
proven. Bronze incriptions and oracle turtle-back bones on polyth eistic
worship prove the historical existence of the campaign but the G ui Fang may
not be Huns.

Many scholars believe that the Xiongnu and Huns were the same group of peo ple
because of similar descriptions of their appearance and living habit s. (more
input here....) Other scholars argue that their appearance and ha bits can
also be found in other tribes residing on the Mongolian steppe s, rather than
being identified as characteristics of the Xiongnu and Hun s. Nevertheless all
agree that the two peoples shared aspects that are mo re than a coincidence
