György Budaházy (born June 3, 1969) is a Hungarian nationalist political figure.

Public life[edit]

He founded in 2006, together with László Toroczkai the Hunnia organization. This rejects both the accession of Hungary to the European Union in 2004 as well as the Treaty of Trianon and calls for a Greater Hungary in the borders before 1920.

After primary school and high school György Budaházy studied engineering, but graduated from the studies in 1992 without success. He then worked as a waiter. At that time he joined the Hungarian Democratic Forum (MDF).

Budaházy was known with his new organization by numerous acts of violence with Molotov cocktails. Budaházy was imprisoned in custody for various militant offenses since 2009.[1][2]

Family[edit]

In 1997 he married Bernadett Trencsányi, with whom he has three children (born 1999, 2001 and 2006).

He was born into an old noble family (Budaházy de Budaháza et Veskócz). One of his ancestors, István Budaházy was mentioned by Géza Gárdonyi in his novel, Eclipse of the Crescent Moon, who participated in the Siege of Eger in 1552 and seriously injured.[3] Another ancestor, János XIV Budaházy (1652–1678) was a young Kuruc cavalry officer. After the losing Battle of Györke (1672) he spent rest of his life in exile.
