The Great Migration Era
In the 400 years following the dissolution of the Hun empire, the
inhabitants of the territory of Hungary often changed in the turbulence of the
Great Migration Era: Gepids, Longobards, Avars and other long forgotten peoples
of Germanic and Central Asian stock followed one another. Avar rule was the
longest, lasting more than 200 years. The Avars were followed by the Franks,
when the Danube again became the eastern borderline of a West European empire.
In the ninth century Pannonia became part of the Morvian empire. There is no
trace of any significant urban development during the Great Migration Era.
