is a feminine Hungarian
name that is possibly derived from the Finno-Ugric
which means "mother". According to the legend, she was the mother of High Prince Álmos
.The legends say that Emese had seen a divine dream of a Turul
bird that flew over her and got her with child; she saw her womb as the source of many great kings, but they would multiply in foreign lands". This is given as the explanation for the name Álmos (ie, "The Dreamt One").
According to Gesta Hungarorum, Emese is the daughter of Leader Önedbelia of Dentümoger, and her husband Ügyek is from the family of Magog.
