The Arpad dynasty was the ruling dynasty of Hungary from the 9th century to 1301. The family was named for Arpad, the leader of the Magyars during the early 10th century, and it ruled over Hungary as it transitioned from a principality to a kingdom. At times, the family also ruled over Dalmatia, Croatia, Cumania, Slavonia, Bulgaria, Lodomeria, and Styria, but it went extinct with the death of King Andrew III of Hungary in 1301. After Stephen V of Hungary's great-great-grandson Charles I of Hungary became king, all subsequent kings of Hungary (except for Matthias Corvinus) were either matrilineal or cognate descendants of the Arpad dynasty.
