Miklós Horthy in Sárvár on 13 December 1922.

We preserve this old, slightly yellowish and damaged picture of the visit of Miklós Horty to Sárvár in the year 1922 in our local history collection.

The governor has not only visited Sárvár, but other west-transdanubean municipalities. The visit had a political purpose, as a year earlier the so-called royal plot took place. King Charles IV. returned from his Swiss exile to Hungary in secret and turning the traditionally legitimist forces of the counties Vas, Sopron and Győr to his side, he tried to take the capitol of Hungary by force. The regiments, consisting first of university students and later of regular troops, held those forces back at Budaörs.
The visit of Horthy to West-Transdanube was nothing more than a protest in these legitimist counties and increase their loyalty towards him. During his stay in Sárvár, which lasted only a couple of hours, he was welcomed festively, the town was embellished and local leaders spoke in words of praise about the governor’s merits in saving the country. Horthy also visited the castle and the Bavarian royal duke, Ferdinand, and left for Celldömölk after assuring the town his full satisfaction. (szg)
