Miss Hungary is a national beauty pageant for unmarried women in Hungary that has been held since the 1920s under the names Miss Hungária and Miss Magyarország . (The term Miss Danube was also used for winners - at least abroad).

Of the early winners, Böske Simon was second Miss Europe in 1929 , and Maria von Tasnady worked as an actress in Austrian and German films.

After a long hiatus from World War II and the rule of communism , the event was revived in the 1980s. Since then, the English name Miss Hungary has been in use alongside the Hungarian Magyarország Szépe .

In 1992 the Miss Universe Hungary competition (and a corresponding organization) was launched. In 1996 there was an independent competition for Miss World Hungary . The winners also run for Miss Universe and Miss World .

About the spelling of the names: In Hungarian it is customary to put the family name in front, for example Deák Andrea. In the above lists, however, the order usual in Europe was followed.

  1. Eva Feher participated in the Miss Europe in Torquay, Maria Nagy in the Miss Universe in Brussels.
  2. According to her own statements, it was the future actress Zsa Zsa Gabor , who was disqualified because she was not yet 16 years old. Her mother Jolie (née Janka Tilleman) also claimed to have won the title. She would then have been 40 years old and the mother of three teenage daughters - also a reason for disqualification! Maria Nagy took part in the Miss Europe in Tunis.
  3. Csilla Molnar committed suicide in 1986.
  4. Antónia Bálint was disqualified because of nude photos (together with the vice-miss, Timea Raba), whereby the third place - Orsolya Anna Michina - moved up. In July 1997 Antónia Bálint got her title back after a civil lawsuit against the organizer!
