The Hungarian population belongs linguistically to the Finno‐Ugric branch of the Uralic family. The Tat C allele is an interesting marker in the Finno‐Ugric context, distributed in all the Finno‐Ugric‐speaking populations, except for Hungarians. This question arises whether the ancestral Hungarians, who settled in the Carpathian Basin, harbored this polymorphism or not. 100 men from modern Hungary, 97 Szeklers (a Hungarian‐speaking population from Transylvania), and 4 archaeologically Hungarian… 
Maternal Genetic Ancestry and Legacy of 10th Century AD Hungarians
The ancient Hungarians originated from the Ural region in today’s central Russia and migrated across the Eastern European steppe, according to historical sources. The Hungarians conquered the
Y-chromosomal connection between Hungarians and geographically distant populations of the Ural Mountain region and West Siberia
This work reconstructs the phylogeny of N3a4-Z1936 clade by using 33 high-coverage Y-chromosomal sequences and estimates the coalescent times of its sub-clades and shows the presence of N2a3-B539 lineages among Hungarians and in the populations from Ural Mountain region, including Ob-Ugric-speakers from West Siberia who are geographically distant but linguistically closest to Hungarians.
Genome-wide autosomal, mtDNA, and Y chromosome analysis of King Bela III of the Hungarian Arpad dynasty
The genome of Bela III one of the most prominent members of the early Hungarian dynasty that ruled the Hungarian Kingdom from 1172 to 1196 is analyzed, supporting a Central Asian origin for the ruling lineage of the Hungarian kingdom.
Genetic analysis of male Hungarian Conquerors: European and Asian paternal lineages of the conquering Hungarian tribes
According to historical sources, ancient Hungarians were made up of seven allied tribes and the fragmented tribes that split off from the Khazars, and they arrived from the Eastern European steppes
Mitochondrial sequence variation in ancient horses from the Carpathian Basin and possible modern relatives
The results show that the ethnic changes induced by the Hungarian Conquest were accompanied by a corresponding change in the stables of the Carpathian Basin.
Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Asian Hun and Srubnaya origin in the Hungarian Conquerors
Phylogenetic and population genetic analysis indicated that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Huns.
Y-chromosome haplogroups from Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian period nomadic people of the Carpathian Basin
Hun, Avar and conquering Hungarian nomadic groups arrived into the Carpathian Basin from the Eurasian Steppes and significantly influenced its political and ethnical landscape, supporting historical sources that report identity of the two groups.
Mitogenomic data indicate admixture components of Central-Inner Asian and Srubnaya origin in the conquering Hungarians
Phylogenetic results reveal that more than one third of the Conqueror maternal lineages were derived from Central-Inner Asia and their most probable ultimate sources were the Asian Scythians and Asian Huns, giving support to the Hungarian Hun tradition.
Ármin Vámbéry (1832-1913) as a Historian of Early Hungarian Settlement in the Carpathian Basin
In the English-speaking world Armin Vambery is known as a traveler in Central Asia and a student of Turkic cultures and languages. In his native Hungary he is also known for his disagreement with
A study of the Bodrogköz population in north-eastern Hungary by Y chromosomal haplotypes and haplogroups
It was found that the general haplogroup distribution of the samples showed high genetic similarity to non-Bodrogköz Hungarians and neighbouring populations, despite its sheltered location and historical record.


Comparison of maternal lineage and biogeographic analyses of ancient and modern Hungarian populations.
It is demonstrated that significant genetic differences exist between the ancient and recent Hungarian-speaking populations, and no genetic continuity is seen.
MtDNA polymorphism in the Hungarians: comparison to three other Finno-Ugric-speaking populations.
The genetic variation observed among the Hungarians resembled closely that found in other European populations and could not be distinguished from the neighboring populations any more than from their Finno-Ugric linguistic relatives.
Probable ancestors of Hungarian ethnic groups: an admixture analysis
The history of Hungary starts in the 9th century with the arrival of the Magyars in the Carpathian Basin. They spoke, like modern Hungarians, an Uralic language belonging to the Finno‐Ugric language
MtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms in Hungary: inferences from the palaeolithic, neolithic and Uralic influences on the modern Hungarian gene pool
The results suggest that the influence of Magyars on the Hungarian gene pool has been very low through both females and males and the Hungarian language could be an example of cultural dominance.
Mitochondrial DNA of Ancient Cumanians: Culturally Asian Steppe Nomadic Immigrants with Substantially More Western Eurasian Mitochondrial DNA Lineages
This study is the first ancient DNA characterization of an eastern pastoral nomad population that migrated into Europe and indicates that, while still possessing a Central Asian steppe culture, the Cumanians received a large admixture of maternal genes from more westerly populations before arriving in Hungary.
Uralic genes in Europe.
Analysis of data of three European populations speaking non-Indoeuropean languages shows that Lapps are almost exactly intermediate between people located geographically near the Ural mountains and speaking Uralic languages, and central and northern Europeans.
The Eurasian Heartland: A continental perspective on Y-chromosome diversity
This study reports the frequencies of 23 Y-chromosome biallelic polymorphism haplotypes in 1,935 men from 49 Eurasian populations, with a particular focus on Central Asia.
The Concepts of Richard Indreko about the Origin of the Finno-Ugric Speakers and the Population Genetics of the Extant North-East European Populations
The approach is to couple the genetic evidence (mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosome data) of Finno-Ugric speaking popula- tions with this archaeological vision.
Y chromosomal heritage of Croatian population and its island isolates
High frequency of haplogroup I in Croatian populations and the phylogeographic pattern in its background STR diversity over Europe make Adriatic coast one likely source of the recolonization of Europe following the Last Glacial Maximum.
Y chromosomal polymorphisms reveal founding lineages in the Finns and the Saami
In the Finns a majority of the haplotypes could be assigned to two distinct groups, one of which harboured the C allele of the Tat polymorphism, indicating dichotomous primary source of genetic variation among Finnish males.
