The work of the first, state
creating king of Hungarians is well known.
He converted pagan Hungarians to Christianity, getting a good shaped
nation acceptable to Europe. He turned the former
nomadic-pagan-barbarian state kind of structure to valuable state
organization in the country. Mildened wild Hungarian hordes running
He offered Hugarian country to Saint
Mary making inevitable to all the
loyalty of Hungarians to the Roman Catholic Church. Also his words to
his successor, his son Emericus are well known, that is actually the
second constitution in the Western, Christian era. Only Iceland had a
constitution earlier in 753 CE.
This could be done with many wars
and sacrifices. People loyal to old
paganism didn't give up so easy. Rebellious leaders paid heavy prize
being slained, blinded, cutted or headed. All these prizes were worth
to make the country Euro-conform, Germano-conform better to say.
Really Stephen (Vajk by given name)
was the first Hungarian king, grown
up and lived after fully Western (European) Roman Catholic values. This
also was the key of contemporary German imperial drives. German
landlords ran to re-establish the state of old Roman God-Caesar,
getting into position against Roman pope, having the same ambitions
Germans begin the occupation of the
lands to East under the cover of
converting to Christianity suppressing for example Czechians and
Moravians for many centuries. These circumstances forced Vajk to cut
the edge of legitimity of German occupation of Hungary and made the
strategic decision by the Roman Catholic church. That was however not
too heavy for him personally, growing up after it's standards.
Nevertheless the following centuries proved that Hungarians should not
fear of Germans being able to repulse all German tries of occupation by
excellent skills of war. Consider the origin of name of Vértes
Mountains in Hungary! This also suggests to reconsider the evaluation
of the battle of Augsburg in 955 CE. If it would be the final victory
over Hungarians, than why did they not take the chance to continue the
war until the final target, occupation of whole Hungary?
In spite of any logical conclusion,
this is not the time of offering
Hungary to Saint Mary.
Lets take a deeper look into the
portray of Stephen of the Illustrated Chronicle shows a strong,
ambitious, self confident young man. This young man started to
strengthen his power eliminating external and internal rivals, as part
of his plan of many huge changes, after getting the power of ruling the
It was Vajk, renamed István,
that became a fanatic servant of the Roman
church and openly violated the blood covenant of his ancestors. He
married a German princess and aimed at making of Hungarians a Germanic
people. His reign began with his first bloody action, murdering the
legitimate heir to the throne according to the law established by the
Blood Covenant, by which it was the eldest male within the ruling house
the one having the right to succeed the sovereign. We cannot know with
certainty who Koppány was, apparently he was not Géza's
he was Taksony's grandson through another line (namely, Géza's
and Vajk's cousin). In any case, as the accounts were written by Vajk's
chroniclers, they contain purposely falsified information and
genealogies, omissions and distortions in order to legalize
the king of Hungary. Many documents were destroyed, as the rovás
runic writing was banned and
replaced by Latin characters (which are not suitable for Hungarian
language; many diacritics and composed letters had to be added in order
to represent the phonemes, while rovás had one character for
sound). Even the Bibles already written in rovás were burnt!

whose canonization took more centuries (1276-1943)! The process in case
of other Western ladies took far less time.)

name of Germanization, and for this bravery he has been sanctified by
Rome. He devoted himself to obliterate the ancient Hungarian religion

erased any trace of Judaism from the original Christian
belief. We cannot know even if Koppány was a supporter of the
religion or if he opposed Christianity, as Vajk did not only fight
against him, but also moved war against Catholic princes: Ajtony of
Marosvár and Gyula of Transylvania, his uncle. However,

the methods of annihilation of any religious idea different from the
Roman church that were practised in Catholic Europe.

Having no other chance offered Stephen the country to the defence of
Saint Mary, to the Great Mother of Hungarians better to say.
There was a goddess clear for all
Hungarians Saint Mary, Babba Maria,
Emese, Eneth, Bau
who perfectly fit to the concept of Saint Mary of christian Europe.
This goddess is goddess Bau
of Sumerian religion, living along as Dingir
Inanna. Her shape appears in
the Hungarian folktale of Tündér
Ilona. Her name means „Godly
. She is the One this way
to whom we cry telling: „Great Woman
of Hungatrians petition for us!”
The religious beliefs of Hungarians
returning into Carpathian Basin was
based on the One God, the Creator of Universe. Jesus and his salvation
was well known far before coming into the Carpathian Basin.
Istvan could make is offer
acceptable for West by the shape of Saint
Mary, as mother of Christ Jesus, while the nation could accept this
offering in the shape of Babba Maria as to the Great Woman of
Hungarians. The concept of both is actually the same. The first option
is more accpetable considering his education, while the possible scared
desire to return to the tradition of olds makes the second option
This is how István the
selfish, ambitious, pushy young completing his
selfish wishes (his arpad-striped garment) under the flag and cover of
christianity (the symbol of double cross on the flag and the shield)
turned into satisfied ruler (his purple garment on the throne), whose
acts stroke back (picture of death of Prince Emericus). The old man
and converts under the pressure (now double cross appears not on his
flag and shield, but on his garment), recognizing his sins and offering
the country, the simple playground of reaching his selfish goals, to
Saint Mary in full agreement of his wife, having no able, legal
successor for the nation. This was paid by hathred of the nation, as he
was not a popular king among contemporary subjects, in spite of any
romantic ideas of the 19th century.
Nevertheless, since that time
onwards the ancient cultural heritage had
been undergoing an irreversible process of Germanization and the secret
of the origins had been perhaps lost forever with the destruction of
the documents written in rovás alphabet.
This is also a
warning to all leaders
of the Hungarian nation.
