Hungary was founded by King Stephen I in 1000. For over 200 hundred years the empire flourished. But in the Mongolian invasion of 1241-1242, large scale destruction was caused. However, the empire was still able to defend itself. The King ordered the construction of stone castles for protection against any such attack in the future. There was not much disturbance till 1526 when Turks invaded and the country got divided into three parts. The first part was under the Hungarian empire, second under the Turkish dominion and the third under Habsburg dominion.
