We have finally arrived to one of the good kings Hungary had in the middle ages - the knight-hero-warrior, one-head-taller-than-everyone, dashingly handsome, stunningly talented László I, the Knight King (1077-1095). He was the son of the unfortunate Béla I (the one that got throned to death), and, similar to his father, as knightly as a knight can be.
Since he was later sainted, there are countless legends about László in Hungarian folklore where he defeats enemies, breaks mountains in two, and makes healing springs bubble up from the ground. According to legend he is also responsible for the nummulites that can be found in several places in Hungary (they are supposed to have been the enemy's golden coins that turned to stone at László's prayer so that his soldiers would stop picking them up and focus on winning the freaking battle instead)
(Look at the picture, they totally look like they are hugging it out...)
This is an ancient story that probably existed long before László came along - he just gave his name to a hero-figure that saves the damsel and kills the bad guy. In some versions he is pictured as sleeping the fight off with his head on the maiden's lap while she is picking at his hair - which is sexy sexy medieval visual symbolism for bonking, just so you know.
