Hunyadi and Transylvania: Of Riches and Fame

John Hyundai is famous in his own right, and he is buried in Transylvania, but we do not hear much about him outside of either Hungary or Romania.  Hyundai is famous more so than Vlad Tepes, and had he lived might have even had a feud with him.

He did with his father, Vlad Tepes II.  The big difference is that unlike Vlad Tepes III he is not in a book, and this makes him less viable in terms of riches and fame.  of course, Hyundai made a huge impact on the Hungarian population of Transylvania.  In fact in Transylvania he is viewed in a very positive light.

But does fame really mean anything?
