Animal Stamp of Hungary

An Asian Magyar built a Hungary kingdom in the end of the 9th century. The 16th century begins and is governed by Ottoman Turkey, and a follower of the Austria House of Hapsburg will receive it after the 18th century. It formed the House of Hapsburg and Austria-Hungary empire in 1867 and achieved virtual independence. However, an empire collapsed after World War I, and it was occupied with World War II by the Soviet Union and became a socialist state as a people's republic in 1949. Hungarian uprising occurred in 1956, and the Soviet Union intervened militarily. A rapid progress reformist held an experiment in 1989 after 30 years, and communism collapsed and was rebeared in Europe model social democracy, and the name of a country became the Republic of Hungary.
