Ügyek

HUSBAND:
Ügyek. (Ugyek)(Ugek)(Ogyek). [The Hungarians].
Born possibly about 790; son of Ed ?. (S1).

It is not definitively clear in the historical records that Ugyek was the son of Ed. What it stated clearly though is that he was at least a descendant of Magor, who was the ancestor of the Magyar Hungarians.

It is said, speculated or at least possible that the earlier High Princes of the Magyars were also descendants of the Hun Khans, as well as other Turkic peoples, and through them from some daughters of Emperors of China. (S1).

Ügyek (second half of the 8th century – first half of the 9th century), also known as Ugek, was the legendary father of Álmos, the first High Prince of the Magyars. His wife was Emese, who had seen a divine dream of a Turul bird that flew over her and impregnated her before Álmos's birth, according to the myth. (S1).

Sources are unclear if the son of Ugyek was Elod and his grandson Almos, or if Almos was his son. My guess is that his son was Elod, and Almos was his grandson. It is possible that Elod and Ugyek are one and the same person. The sources are also unclear if Emese was the wife of Ugyek or the wife of Elod. They do quite clearly appear to say the Emese was the mother of Almos.

He died possibly about 820 AD.

WIFE:
Emese ?
dau.of Prince Önedbelia of Dentümoger. (S2).

CHILDREN of Ügyek:
  1. ELOD, Chief of the Magyars.
