Emese's Dream, the legend of the conception of Prince Álmos, is one of the earliest known tales from Hungarian history ( dated 820-997). Emese was impregnated by a turul bird, who appeared to her in a dream & told her that from her womb a great river would begin & flow out over strange lands. Dream interpreters said this meant that she would give birth to a son who would lead his people, & that her descendants would be glorious kings. Álmos' name comes from the Hungarian word álom (dream).
