But, there are also some Hungarian studies marked by the same lack of criticism that is proper to the tendentious historiography of both countries. This lack of criticism led to the evolvement of a theory that dates in the first coming of the Hungarians in Transylvania. This fradition says that the Hungarian duke Almas entered with ,J J..

Ibique terreis castris septem preparatis pro uxoribus et rebus suis conservandis aliquamdiu permanserunt. Quapropter Teutonici partem illam ab illo die Simburg, id est septem castravocaverunt. Almus in patria Erdelw occisus est, non enim potuit in Pannoniam introire. In Erdelw igitur quieverunt et pecorasua recreaverunt5. We agree with 1. Gyorffy is instead very confident in the trustworthyness of the tradition about the seven fortresses; he supposes that the Hungarians reused the ruins of the Roman cities7.
This theory is not a recent one. It is however surprising that this legend was used without any criticism by historians like Gy. Gyorffy and 1. In other circumstances, they were very exigent as concerns the traditions written down in the Anonymus Gesta Hungarorum9.
The legend presented above could be only a later and confused version of another tradition. The elder gesta written in XIIIth Century are giving detailed relations about the duke Almas and about the way followed by his people, from Scythia to Pannonia. The way crossed by north of Carpathians and not by Transylvania. This version l! The trustworthyness of this'informatibn'is out of yr subject.

This explanation is convincing but not sufficient. The latter used it as a source. The moment of the conquest of the fortress Ung was related by Simon of Keza in a different way. He says that Hungarians founded a fortress near the river Hung A quo, quidamfluvio Hungari a gentibus occidentis, sunt vocati The etimology of the name Hungari is wrong. The real origin of the name is from QnogurF4.
Therefore, according to Simon of Kep, Hungarians built up seven fortresses in the region of river Hung these six and the first one mentioned above.

We did not wish to discuss here the study of Attila Kiss, butwe want to point out its importance for the archaeology of medieval Transylvania.
The real significance of the legend written down in Chronicon Pictum shows that Hungarian medieval chronicles must be interpreted with great carefulness. NOTES 1. Deletant, Ethno-History or My tho-History?
