This study deals with the identity of the founder of the ruling Hungarian dynasty and his successors. Although both Levedi and Almos had been leaders of the Hungarian tribes in the ninth century, according to the work of Emperor Constantine (De administrando imperio, chapter 38 and 40) the son of Almos, Árpád had been elected prince before the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian basin in 895. Consequently the dignity of prince (kündü) was inherited in the clan of Árpád: Árpád had four sons (Tarkacsu, Jelekh, Jutocsa, Zolta) and five grandsons (Teveli, Ezeleg, Falicsi, Tas, Taksony), these should be considered the potential heirs of the dignity. Emperor Constantine mentioned a certain Liuntika, as prince and son of Árpád at the time of the Bulgarian war (895) and his grandson, Falicsi as contemporary prince (around 948). Liuntika (Ljuntika-Juntika) may be identified with one of Árpád's four sons, possibly with the third son, Jutocsa. Jutocsa-Liuntika was the commander-in-chief in the Bulgarian war and prince after his father's death. Jutocsa was succeeded by his son, Falicsi, and then the cousin of Falicsi, Taksony (Zolta's son) ruled. The son of Taksony, Géza inherited the dignity and his son, Vajk (Stephen) was the last prince and the first Christian king of the Hungarians. One general rule of succession prevailed: the prince was the member of the ruling Arpad dynasty, a descendant of Árpád.
