The Kingdom of Hungary was a multilingual, multiethnic and (as the meaning from the 19th century) multinational country in Central Europe covering what is today Hungary, Slovakia, Transylvania (now part of Romania), Carpathian Ruthenia (now part of Ukraine), Vojvodina (now part of Serbia), Burgenland (now part of Austria), and other smaller territories surrounding present-day Hungary's borders. From 1102 it also included Croatia (except Istria), being in personal union with it, united under the Hungarian king. The kingdom existed for almost one thousand years (1000–1918 and 1920–1946) and at various points was regarded as one of the cultural centers of the Western world.

“A box of teak, a box of sandalwood,
A brass-ringed spyglass in a case,

This darkness, which he imagines he can dispense with in describing the light, is error with its unknown characteristics.... Error is certaintys constant companion. Error is the corollary of evidence. And anything said about truth may equally well be said about error: the delusion will be no greater.”
—Louis Aragon (18971982)
