In the 15th century Hungary was one of the most powerful countries in Europe, with a very established economy and a very powerful army which could hold the Turkish Empire back from Europe's border for more than 100 years.
Unexpectedly a very young noble boy was chosen to become the new king of Hungary.
Can he fulfill the requirements? Does he have to serve those powerful people or can he build up his own new kingdom? How can somebody rule a country and be a humanist at the same time?
Matthias Corvinus was born as the second son of Janos Hunyadi who defeated the Turkish army in Beograd in 1456. Hunyadi died after the battle. Shortly after that his first son was beheaded. The Hungarians wanted to have a new, Hungarian king. A small powerful circle of super-rich people decided to appoint Mátyás Hunyadi (Matthias Corvinus), a teenage boy to become the king.
