Budapest Emerges as a Determined Competitor in Europe

The Romans built an impressive urban settlement (Aquincum) centered where modern Budapest is located in 89 AD. Already a Celtic population lived there. The Romans were constantly under threat from the Barbarians from across the river Danube. Attila the Hun, on his forays across Eastern Europe, attacked in the 5th century causing the eventual Roman withdrawal. The Ungarians came next, possibly from Central Asia or even further, led by Arpad in 896. Their descendants constitute the bulk of the Hungarian population of today.
