      Leo van de Pas:

      "He was a leader (Khagan) of the Khazars, Caspian Sea Turkic people who lived between the rivers Tisza and Szamos in today's Hungary and Romania. The Khazars came into existence as a people shortly after the breakup of the Turkic empire located near China and arrived north of the Caspian soon thereafter. They were known for their religious tolerance, and at least some of their leaders converted to Judaism.

      "Nothing is recorded about Maroth other than he appears to be among those who converted to Judaism. His daughter, whose name is not recorded, was the wife of Zoltán, youngest of the five sons of Arpád, prince of the Magyars. Their son was Taksony, prince of Hungary."
