Experts Establish Hungarian Royal Hunyadi Family’s DNA Profile


Experts of the National History Research Institute (MKI) have identified the DNA profile of the Hunyadi family, the family of Hungary’s renaissance King Matthias I who reigned in Hungary between 1458 and 1490, the head of MKI’s archaeology institute told public Kossuth Rádió.

Miklós Makoldi said that the experts had used bone samples of John and Christopher Hunyadi, Matthias’s son and grandson, who were buried in a Pauline monastery in Croatia, and whose graves were left undisturbed over the centuries. “We now have the DNA profile to identify further members of the Hunyadi family,” Makoldi said, highlighting the possibility of finding the king’s remains, now in an ossarium in Székesfehérvár, in western Hungary, together with the bones of other kings and high officials.
