A famous XIX c. painting about Árpád (by another Árpád, FESZTY Árpád) and the six other chieftains leading the Hungarians into their new homeland. Árpád became the ruler of the Hungarians by uniting seven Hungarian tribes. According to the tradition the seven chieftains sealed the union by the symbolic act of drinking from each other's blood.
