Előd was – according to chronicler Anonymus – one of the seven chieftains of the Magyars (Hungarians), who led the Hungarians to the Carpathian Basin in 895. Előd was the chieftain of the Hungarian tribe of the Nyék. The Nyék tribe occupied the region around Lake Balaton, mainly the areas what are known today Zala and Somogy counties.
