* On a darker note, another well-known Hungarian is the infamous "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Báthory, a particularly prolific SerialKiller who was active during the sixteenth and seventeenth century.

* AlienAmongUs: Hungarian scientists were jokingly referred as Martians during their stay in the States. Since there were a lot of Jews in Hungary, and Hungary was a [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Nazi]] puppet state during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, there were understandably quite a lot of Hungarian Jewish scientists (and frequently their Christian colleagues) heading to America. The most famous are the (highly eccentric) mathematicians John von Neumann and Paul Erdõs (Neumann János and Erdõs Pál in Hungarian) and the (batshit insane) nuclear physicist Edward Teller (Teller Ede).

Another famous Hungarian Jew in the sciences is Andrew Grove (Gróf András), who fled to the States during the 1956 revolution and went on to co-found semiconductor giant Intel.



* UsefulNotes/{{Tennis}} great Monica Seles is ''ethnically'' Hungarian, although she never lived in the country, being part of the historic Hungarian minority in modern-day UsefulNotes/{{Serbia}}.



* On the other hand, Hungarians and [[UsefulNotes/{{Romania}} Romanians]] don't exactly get along that well. A centuries-long dispute over rightful ownership of Transylvania (with all the attendant MisplacedNationalism and abusive historical {{Ret Con}}s), the fact that it was settled by the Trianon treaty at the small price of having Hungary lose 72% of its territory (but surprisingly only about a third of it's ethnically Hungarian population the majority of the population of Transylvania actually being ethnically Romanian according to all censuses of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), something that Hungarians can be a bit bitter about, and a [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomp War]] in 1919 with a side helping of Romanian occupation, plundering (in retaliation for the Central Powers doing the same thing during UsefulNotes/WW1) and harsh armistice terms didn't help.

** And while most linguists agree with the above, nationalistic Hungarians sometimes prefer to give credit to the Turkic peoples. Check TheOtherWiki for some {{flamewar}}s.

* After 1956, Hungary went through some more low-key reforms, and became ironically known as "the happiest barracks in the camp", under "Goulash Communism". It was also during this time that they had a really, ''really'' good football team; they won three Olympic gold medals, but sadly never won a WorldCup (losing the 1954 final to West Germany in a match known in Germany as "The Miracle in Bern").
