Realm of St. Stephen: A History of Medieval Hungary, 895-1526

Front Cover
I. B. Tauris, 2001 M05 4 - 416 pages
This is a comprehensive textbook on the historiography of medieval Eastern and Central Europe. It traces the medieval kingdom of Hungary - which covered the vast territory of the Carpathian basin - from the conquest by the Magyar tribes in 895 until defeat by the ottomans at the battle of Mohacs in 1526.

The book is divided into two broad periods: the "national" Magyar kings of the Arpadian dynasty who had ruled from 895 were replaced in 1301 by rulers from a number of European dynasties, culminating in the radical changes to political and social structures of the 13th century.
