Often times called the 'greatest" Hungarian, Count István Széchenyi (1791 - 1860) was also a generous philanthropist exhibiting many of the attributes of enlightened philanthropy. He always had the big picture in mind, liked giving with fellow aristocrats, and spent a lot of his times nurturing his investments. No person, tourist or resident, can imagine Budapest without the 'results' of his philanthropy such as the Chain Bridge, Hungarian Academy of Science and the 'lovasság'.
St. Stephen, the first king of Hungary, ordered the church to use some of the funds it collected on behalf of the state to look after the poor.
