Statue of Előd on the Heroes' Square of Budapest

Előd was – according to the chronicler Anonymus (or "Master P.") – the author of the Gesta Hungarorum – one of the seven chieftains of the Magyars (Hungarians), who led them to the Carpathian Basin in 895.

There are two somewhat differing accounts concerning Előd's relationship to Álmos, leader of the Magyars, c. 820 – c. 895.

Előd was the chieftain of the Hungarian Nyék tribe, which occupied the region around Lake Balaton, mainly the areas what are known today Zala and Somogy counties.[1]
