(1) Prince St. Imre, also Emeric, (1007–1031) was the son of Stephen I of Hungary. He was educated by Bishop Gerhard from the age of 15 to 23. He was intended to be the next monarch of Hungary, his father wrote admonitions to prepare him for this task, but he died at a young age, at hunting. He was canonized in 1083.

(2) St. Elizabeth, Queen of Thuringia was born in 1207 as a daughter of Andrew II, king of Hungary. She was married at the age of fourteen to Louis IV of Thuringia. In the spring of 1226, when floods, famine, and the pest wrought havoc in Thuringia, Ludwig was in Italy on behalf of the emperor. Under these circumstances Elizabeth assumed control of affairs, distributed alms in all parts of the territory of her husband, giving even state robes and ornaments to the poor. In order to care personally for the unfortunate she built a hospital below the castle Wartburg. After her husband's death she was deprived of the Regency by his brother, was driven from her home and found refuge with her uncle in Bamberg. Later she refused to return to the regency and lived at Marburg, administering to the sick and needy. She died in 1231 and four years later was canonized for her work among the needy.

(3) Prince Francis II Rákóczi (1676 - 1735) was a Hungarian noble, duke of Transylvania, who in 1703-1711 rebelled against Habsburg rule in northern parts of the Kingdom of Hungary. His rebellion (the Francis II Rákóczi Uprising) failed, but he partly managed to gain the Hungarian nobles' rights over their land and people so long as they swore allegiance to Austria. The emperor pledged to honour Hungarian laws and ensure religious freedom for Protestants. Those noblemen swearing allegiance to the emperor would regain or retain already existing estates. The document granted amnesty to Rákóczi as well. Refusing to barter with the enemy, Rákóczi renounced his enormous estates and went into exile to Poland and stayed there.

(4) In 1635 P. Pázmány, Primate of Hungary, founded the first Hungarian University of the New Age at Nagyszombat. Because of the Turkish occupation the University moved to Buda and became the University of Buda in the late 18th century.

(5) The Ottoman Turks conquered most of Hungary in the 16th century: Pest fell in 1526 and Buda 15 years later. While Buda remained the seat of a Turkish governor, Pest was largely derelict by the time of their recapture. Buda was recaptured by the combined forces of the countries of the Holy Roman Empire, Venice and the Papal states in 1686, this being the end of the Turkish domination of Christian Europe. Although the city had been nearly destroyed by the Turks, it was rebuilt in exactly the style in which King Matthias had built it.

(6) Founded as the Debrecen Reformed College in 1538, the institute has been training pastors and teachers for the Reformed communities of Eastern Hungary. An Academy of Law and a Teacher's Training Institute were established in the 19th century and a Faculty of Arts in 1908. The three Faculties (Theology, Law and Arts) were united as the Hungarian Royal Tisza István University in 1912.

(7) According to first Vienna arbitration, signed in 1938, Hungary was awarded 12.103 square kilometers of Czechoslovakian territory, with slightly over one million population (80% Magyars), which was a part of Hungarian empire before WW1.

(8) Surtax was used as a form of collecting money for the peoples in the returned territories, hence "Magyar a Magyarert" (Hungarians Help Hungarians) appeared in the design of each stamp.

(9) The 4th World Jamboree was held in Hungary in 1933. It was attended by over 26.000 Scouts representing 46 countries. Its setting was the great park at Gödöllö. The whole Hungarian nation had cooperated to make the event a success.
