From the second part of the 13th century the general religious tolerance decreased and Hungary's policies became similar to the treatment of the Jewish population in Western Europe.

It is not definitely known when Jews first settled in Hungary.

According to tradition, King Decebalus (ruled Dacia 87-106 CE) permitted the Jews who aided him in his war against Rome to settle in his territory.

About the same time Ibrahim ibn Jacob says that Jews went from Hungary to Prague for business purposes. Samuel Kohn suggests that Jewish Khazars may have been among the Hungarian troops that under Árpád conquered the country in the second half of the 9th century.

Nothing is known concerning the Jews during the period of the Vajdas, except that they lived in the country and engaged in commerce there.
