Hungarians are the second largest ethnic group in Serbia if not counting the Albanians of Kosovo. According to the 2011 census, there are 253,899 ethnic Hungarians composing 3.5% of the population of Serbia. The vast majority of them live in the northern autonomous province of Vojvodina, where they number 251,136 or 13% of the population of the province, and almost 99% of all Hungarians in the country. Most Hungarians in Serbia are Roman Catholics by faith, while smaller numbers of them are Prot

Parts of the Vojvodina region were included in the medieval Kingdom of Hungary in the 10th century, and Hungarians then began to settle in the region, which before that time was mostly populated by West Slavs. During Hungarian administration, Hungarians formed the largest part of the population in northern parts of the region, while southern parts were populated by sizable Slavic peoples. Following the Ottoman conquest and inclusion of Vojvodina into Ottoman Empire in the 16th century, most Hungarians fled the region. During Ottoman rule, Vojvodina region was mostly populated by Serbs and Muslim Slavs (Great Migrations of the Serbs). New Hungarian settlers started to come to the region with the establishment of the Habsburg administration at the beginning of the 18th century, mostly after the Peace of Passarowitz (Požarevac).
Almost all Hungarians in Serbia are to be found in Vojvodina, and especially in its northern part (North Bačka and North Banat districts, respectively) where majority (57.17%) of them live. Hungarians in the five municipalities form the absolute majority: Kanjiža (85.13%), Senta (79.09%), Ada (75.04%), Bačka Topola (57.94%), and Mali Iđoš (53.91%). The ethnically mixed municipalities with relative Hungarian majority are Čoka (49.66%), Bečej (46.34%) and Subotica (35.65%). The multiethnic city of Subotica is a cultural and political centre for the Hungarians in Serbia. Protestant Hungarians form the plurality or majority of population in the settlements of Stara Moravica, Pačir, Feketić, Novi Itebej and Debeljača. 1.

There might be few more villages with absolute or relative Hungarian majority, but since I did not had exact information about ethnic composition of these villages, I did not listed them. The villages which also might have a Hungarian majority are: 1. Nova Crnja village (Nova Crnja municipality) 2. Banatski Dvor (Žitište municipality) 3. Novi Itebej (Žitište municipality) 4. Svetozar Miletić (Sombor municipality) 5. Ivanovo (Pančevo municipality) 6. Konak (Sečanj municipality) 7. Šumarak (Kovin municipality) I know that some of these places (like Nova Crnja) had a Hungarian majority in previous censuses, but I do not know was that a case with 2002 census too, since some ethnic changes occured in the region between the last few censuses. It would be nice if somebody know does these places have a Hungarian majority according to the last 2002 census.

You should check the meaning of these words in an English dictionary: to colonise/colonize, coloniser etc. It refers to people setting in a country other than their own. Your pechant for referring to internal Hungarian migration and policies of resettlement in Vojvodina as colonising misuses the word, given that these areas were under Hungarian administration. Lev123 1. They did settled in the country which was not their - the name of the country was Habsburg Monarchy. But anyway, the term colonization is used for different things while term "internal migration" is completelly new term invented by you. So, why we should use it? And of course, these areas were not under Hungarian administration before 1867 and most of these colonizations mentioned here occured before that year.

I think the article should be expanded because currently it only covers the history of the Hungarians in Vojvodina up until the early 20th century. To be more relevant, the history section should cover the history of Hungarians after Triannon, during the interwar years, during WW2 (Hungarian occupation), aftermath of WW2 (revenge killings), Tito years, Milosevic regime (mass exodus of Hungarians), revival of autonomy, and the present. I know some of these topics are articles on their own, but this article should touch upon these more recent topics. ▪ radonX € 09:24, 28 December 2006 (UTC) 1. I have extended the history section. I was trying to be as impartial and neutral as possible and I hope nobody has serious objections. I would also appreciate if someone could extend the section with more information about Hungarians during the 1st Yugoslavia.

In the interwar period it was IN to be Communist among the Hungarians, because it was a kind of resistance against the Serbian authorities. They outnumbered Serb Communists (in Vojvodina of course). The idea of Communism among Serbs in Vojvodina developed en masse only after Hitler came to power.--Bendeguz17:39, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
If PANNONIAN or someone else from Vojvodina has time, please expand the culture section. I know that Hungarians have some folk festivals, dance houses, and other cultural centers. Since I don't live there, I can't really add much to that myself. ▪ radonX € 21:45, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
Names in different languages are not same thing - it is simply not correct to say that Hungarian name for the town is "old" and Serbian "new" because of the two reasons: 1. 1. In Hungarian, name Nagybecskerek is both, old and new, i.e. Hungarian use today same name as it used in 1912. 2. 2. If you write new Serbian name for the town,and if you want to write old name too, then this old name would be Bečkerek, not Nagybecskerek, which is not old name of the town, but simply name in another language. "Your" version of the article create a confusion and make impresion that "Nagybecskerek" is simply old name of the town, which is not correct because it is used today too in Hungarian.

The problems with the History part are the following: 1. This is the English Wikipedia and the article is about the history of Hungarians living on a specific area, which belonged to Hungary for many hundrends of years. Why are the names of people and names of towns are written according to Serbian spelling rules? My proposal: every personal name should be written according to Hungarian spelling rules. The names of the towns should be written on the official language of the state they belonged to. So before WW1 Hungarian and during the WW2 Hungarian, between the 2 WWs and after WW2 Serbian, and in both cases the other name of the towns can be used in brackets. 1.1. Yes, this is English Wikipedia and therefore names used here are written in version most common in English. You have Hungarian Wikipedia where you can use Hungarian names. If article is about Hungarians that does not mean that we should use Hungarian names since this is English text and Hungarian names for all places in V...
Have you sources about this village? No Google hits, and I guess it is a Serbised misplelling of a Hungarian name. --Koppany10:07, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
Hello! There's a recently created article (Hungarians in Serbia) into which almost all of the content was copied from this article – in other words, it is a duplication of Hungarians in Vojvodina article. Given that article does not add any more detail, I suggest it should be redirected to this one. Another solution could be if at least the information covered in the Hungarians in Vojvodina article would be removed, which would leave a rather short and unreferenced article under that title, but still could be a stepping stone to further develop the article. I've also tried to draw attention on the issue on the other talk page of the other article Talk:Hungarians in Serbia#Merge — Thehoboclown (talk) 14:40, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

The Hungarians' own ethnonym to denote themselves in the Early Middle Ages is uncertain. The exonym "Hungarian" is thought to be derived from Oghur-Turkic On-Ogur (literally "Ten Arrows" or "Ten Tribes"). Another possible explanation comes from the Old Russian "Yugra" ("Югра"). It may refer to the Hungarians during a time when they dwelt east of the Ural Mountainsalong the natural borders of Europe and Asia before their conquest of the Carpathian Basin. Prior to the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895/6 and while they lived on the steppes of Eastern Europe east of the Carpathian Mountains, written sources called the Magyars "Hungarians", specifically: "Ungri" by Georgius Monachus in 837, "Ungri" by Annales Bertiniani in 862, and "Ungari" by the Annales ex Annalibus Iuvavensibus in 881. The Magyars/Hungarians probably belonged to the Onogur tribal alliance, and it is possible that they became its ethnic majority. In the Early Middle Ages, the Hungarians had many names,...
The origin of Hungarians, the place and time of their ethnogenesis, has been a matter of debate. Due to the classification of Hungarian as an Ugric language, they are commonly considered an Ugric people that originated from the Ural Mountains, Western Siberia or the Middle Volga region. The relatedness of Hungarians with the Ugric peoples is almost exclusively founded on linguistic data and has been called into question. It is not backed with testimonies in historical sources or the results o...
Pre-4th century AD
During the 4th millennium BC, the Uralic-speaking peoples who were living in the central and southern regions of the Urals split up. Some dispersed towards the west and northwest and came into contact with Iranian speakers who were spreading northwards. From at least 2000 BC onwards, the Ugric-speakers became distinguished from the rest of the Uralic community, of which the ancestors of the Magyars, being located farther south, were the most numerous. Judging by evidence from burial mounds an...
4th century to c. 830
In the 4th and 5th centuries AD, the Hungarians moved from the west of the Ural Mountains to the area between the southern Ural Mountains and the Volga River known as Bashkiria (Bashkortostan) and Perm Krai. In the early 8th century, some of the Hungarians moved to the Don River to an area between the Volga, Don and the Seversky Donets rivers.Meanwhile, the descendants of those Hungarians who stayed in Bashkiria remained there as late as 1241. The Hungarians around the Don River were subordin...
According to a 2008 publication from the European Journal of Human Genetics, the Y-DNA haplogroup Haplogroup R1a1a-M17 was found amongst 57% of modern Hungarian male samples, genetically clustering them with that of their neighboring West Slavic neighbors, the Czechs, Poles, and Slovaks. Another study on Y-Chromosome markers concluded that "modern Hungarian and Székelys (a subgroup of Hungarians living in the Székely Land in modern-day central Romania) are genetically related, and that they share similar components described for other Europeans, except for the presence of the Haplogroup R1 (M173) in Székely samples, which may reflect a Central Asianconnection from the time of the Hungarian migration from the Urals to Europe. Recent genetic research is in line with the previous archaeological and anthropological assumptions that the original Hungarian conqueror tribes were related to the Onogur-Bulgars. A substantial part of the conquerors show similarities to the Xiongnu and Asian S...

The territory of modern Serbia was divided between Hungary, Bulgaria, the Independent State of Croatia and Italy (Greater Albania and Montenegro), while the remaining part of the occupied Serbia was placed under the military administration of Nazi Germany, with Serbian puppet governments led by Milan Aćimović and Milan Nedić assisted by Dimitrije Ljotić 's fascist organization Yugoslav National Movement (Zbor).
Historie. Dele af Vojvodina-regionen blev inkluderet i det middelalderlige Kongerige Ungarn i det 10. århundrede, og ungarere begyndte derefter at bosætte sig i regionen, som før den tid for det meste var befolket af vestslaver.
