Sickening, but it is and was nevertheless reality during the Soviet Occupation and subsequent civil war.

Hey Nagyfejedelem that horse and the warrior with his bow is typical to Turkic warriors. I havent saw any other non-Turkic warrior with a bow on a horse... And also is that horse a Tarpan?

Scythian/Iranian peoples from the steppes typically were well experienced in using the bow and horsemanship.

Yup, the "Parthian shot" is the Roman testament to Iranian horse and bowmanship.

DayI:

In this time Hungarian warriors had Turk bow, equipment, clothes and tactics, too. Horses of Hungarians really were Tarpans.

Hungarians had relations with Iranians (Scythians, Alans, etc), too. But in this time the Turkish influence was stronger.

When did Hungarians (Magyars) arrive in present Hungary, was it with Attila or before? He had a large Alanian contingent in his army too.

Oguzoglu, I know that yeniçeris means Yeni= new çeris=Army, but why is it yeniçeris and not yeniçeriler? I guess that is a grammer question here.

Also, they are called in Arabic Al Jayesh Al Inkeshari, Al Jayesh= The army, Inkeshari= Jenessaries.  Does Inkeshari come from any Turkish word?
