Croatian-Hungarian Party (Croatian: Hrvatsko-ugarska stranka) was the name of a 19th-century political party in the Habsburg Kingdom of Croatia and the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia which advocated closer ties between Croatia and Hungary. It was officially named Horvatsko-vugerska stranka in 1841 when it participated in the council of the Varaždin County.[1] It was one of the two parties in the 1843 session of the Croatian Parliament.[2] It temporarily ceased to function in 1849, following the Revolutions of 1848; when it was reconstituted in 1860, it was named the Unionist Party (Unionistička stranka), and entered the Parliament in 1861.[3] Because they advocated Magyarization policies, their political adversaries gave them a well-known nickname of mađaroni.[1]

Several 19th-century Ministers of Croatian Affairs of Hungary and Bans of Croatia were members of the party.
