Part III – Excerpts from Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Endre’s (1886-1944) work entitled "Mátyás király” [King Mátyás]. Matthias Corvinus, Matthias I, was King of Hungary and Croatia from 1458 to 1490. He was born in Kolozsvár (now Cluj-Napoca, Romania) on February 23, 1443. Some of King Mátyás’s important military, political and religious feats are summarized here. Also addressed is the question of just how Hungarian he was, or wasn’t. The reason for the raven in his coat of arms is explained. By Kóka Rozália.
