Q is for Queens, Kings, and History
Mondák a magyar történelemből (Legends from Hungarian history) is a 13-episode cartoon series that first aired in 1986. It aimed to educate people about the historical stories every Hungarian should be familiar with - our first kings, ancestry, journey to the Carpathian basin, etc. It was created by historians and artists together, and often it presents multiple accounts of the same events.
Gesta Hungaroroum. Every once in a while, a historian also makes an appearance to chime in.
The series also happens to feature some of the stories I used last year for 26 Ways to Die in Medieval Hungary.
You can watch all 13 episodes (in Hungarian) here.
