Where the Magyar Hungarian? 

I remember they were mentioned briefly in The Historian, in relations to Hungary. But I never was able to figure out if they were Turks or Hungarians.

Yep, they were Hungarians. Or became Hungarians when they settled down. Anyway, in Hungarian language, Magyar=Hungarian so that pretty much settles it for me :)

I didn't know the Lechfeld was a forest. That explains the Magyar defeat.

You captured the mythic look of a very much real past.  Excellent!  It is all true to the period.
