I am a Czech, who used to live 2 years in Hungary and I only scored 3 of the Hungarians and never heard those names. The above mentioned are people, that everybody knows and made history. Streets, squares and bridges are named after them. Please, make some addition, or I will have to make my own quiz for them :D
