The Gesta Hungarorum of Anonymus, the Anonymous Notary of King Béla: a translation.

The Church remained the single institution able to support the survival and the cohesion of the autonomous Roman communities that perpetuated the ancient Roman civitas. Hearing this from the messenger, Tuhutum prepared himself and his soldiers and, after he left his compan- ions3 there, he went beyond the forests toward the east against Gelou, the duke of the Blaci.

The tra- dition says nothing about their fate after the Hungarian conquest. The earthen wall was made taller, the watch way was restored with stone slabs, the ditch was enlarged, and the berm was eliminated. He was quite familiar with Hungary and Albania, 51 but he had a confused image of other Balkan regions. The prologue a letter to a friendshows the reason why the work was written: It was the result of the sedentarization and of the conversion to Christianity of the Slavs and then of the Hungarians, with whom the native population gradually merged in the centuries that followed.

Quomodo contra Gelu itum est Tunc Tuhutum audita bonitate terre illius, misit legatos suos ad ducem Arpd, ut sibi licentiam daret ultra siluas eundi contra Gelou ducem pugnare.

The trade and the circulation of craftsmen were not hin- dered by the Avarian domination.

A good exam- ple is provided by a large part of the descendants of the Moesian Romans, Slavized after the establishment of Bulgaria, when they did not escape to remote areas.

Almus in patria Erdelw occisus est, non enim potuit in Pannoniam introire. At Tokod in the north-east of Valeriathe refugees made some buildings with rudimentary walls without foundation, that did not follow the reg- ular plan of the camp; this last phase is dated in the 5th century.

Its enclosure, partially iden- tified, reused the walls of the Roman camp that existed here before the establishment of the municipium of Napoca, in the north-west- ern corner of the Roman city perimeter. Pannonia Secunda in the ethnogenetic area of the Romanians. The name Sirmium was inherited by the region Srem. In conclusion, we sustain the idea advanced by Kurt Horedt, that the residence of Gelou was at Cluj-Napoca. In the first years, these foederati ravaged Mursa and Sopianae; other Germanic invasions occurred in and On this road, Cluj was a strategic point.

The work includes some data about the Romanians, not found in other products of the Hungarian me- dieval historiography, which were thus spared a similar question- ing Chronicon Pictum Vindobonense, Chronicon Dubnicense, Chronicon Posoniense, Chronicon Budense. The Gepids were later defeated by the Ostrogothic Italian kingdom inand Pannonia Secunda including Sirmium entered under Ostrogothic domination.

Duke Gelou wanted to block them there, with his archers. Ironically both of these men have not been forgotten, proving that the power of myth is timeless, as are their works.

This piece is typical for the Old Hungarian graves from the first half of the 10th century. However, we cannot be sure of that, since it is a stray find. Since no pottery decorated with the small wheel was found in jungarorum I, it results that this phase could be dated in the 10th century.

The medieval documents recorded since a fortress called castrum Clus. Only in the valley was this control possible, which meant in fact tak- ing customs taxes for the salt.


We can add that the popular name of St. Its popularity soared along with Hungarian nationalism in the 19 th century. When demanding the emancipation of the Romanians of Transylvania in the late 18th century, the authors of the Supplex Libellus Valachorum referred to Anonymus’s work.

Because we do not know a single reason why anyone would have invented it, it can be concluded that this tradition recorded the belief that Romanians had lived in Pannonia before the Hungarian con- quest. He did not agree with a statement of Petru Anlnymous, that: The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that ” faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain “. It seems that Petru More had proposed this castle as a new resi- dence of the bishop.

It cannot quite start with the Saxons, since they were invitees, but there presence illuminates the growthdevelopment and major historical trends of the area for anonyomus nine hundred years.

Because the Blaci were Romanians, it could be supposed that anonymoys name of their dominus was recorded in the Romanian form. Aninymous researches might establish with more accu- racy the time when this Leon was in office. Skip to main content.
