General Notes

History/Background

The Turul is the most important mythological bird of the origin myth of the Magyars (Hungarian people). It is a messenger of god in Hungarian mythology, who sits on top of the tree of life along with the other spirits of unborn children in the form of birds. The Turul is probably a large falcon, and the origin of the word is most likely Turkic (togrıl or turgul means a medium-large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, Goshawk or Red Kite). In Hungarian the word sólyom means falcon, and there are three ancient words describing different kinds of falcons: kerecsen (saker), zongor [Turkish Sungur = Gyr Falcon] (lives in the male name Zsombor) and turul.
