Carte rouge – The Ethnographic map of Hungary

Recognizing that Hungary would finish World War I on the losing side and probably be forced to accept the disadvantageous consequences of a prospective peace treaty, from 1918 onwards the entire Hungarian academic community united their efforts to provide scientifically grounded arguments to support Hungary's standpoint. The multidisciplinary academic team led and supervised by the internationally acclaimed geographer, Pál Teleki had produced a vast number of maps and documents on various subjects ranging from ethnography, to economics and political relations.

Diplomatic relations between Hungary and the Vatican established 100 years ago

Formation of strong ties between Hungary and the Holy See served as a prerequisite of Hungary's accession to the community of Christian Europe more than 1000 years ago. One of the major steps towards this goal was when Pope Silvester II formally acknowledged Hungary as a sovereign Christian kingdom and legend has it that he personally sent the Holy Crown to the First King of Hungary, St. Stephen I. In the 20th century, it was Count Mihály Károlyi's government that had first attempted to establish diplomatic relations with the Vatican, but eventually – owing to the turbulent historical circumstances of the time – the official opening of diplomatic relations was delayed until the early Horthy era.

Hungary's political leadership had had the intention to join the League of Nations – an international organization established in 1919 – even before the Treaty of Trianon was settled. The government addressed the Chair of the Paris Peace Conference in February 1920 expressing Hungary's desire for accession. The request, however, was heavily opposed by League of Nations members until Hungary had signed and ratified the Treaty.
