  • Notes 
    • From Wikipedia:

      "Gyula II was a Hungarian tribal leader in the middle of the 10th century. [...] He descended from a family whose members held the hereditary title gyula, which was the second in rank among the leaders of the Hungarian tribal federation. [...] According to the Hungarian chronicles, his family's progenitor was one of the seven conqueror chiefs who occupied Transylvania at the time of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin. [...]

      "Ioannes Skylitzes narrates that around 952 Gyula visited Constantinople, where he was baptized, and Emperor Constantine VII lifted him from the baptismal font. He also received the honorary title patrikios in Constantinople.

      "Gyula was given a bishop named Hierotheos who accompanied him back to Turkia (Hungary)."
