George, Son of Andrew I of Hungary

George (Hungarian: György) was an illegitimate son of Andrew I.[1][2] George was the son of a non-Christian marriage of Andrew I, to a Hungarian woman, before Andrew's conversion to the Roman Catholic faith, but subsequent Christian marriage to a Russian Orthodox princess rendered the non-Christian children of his first marriage illegitimate under Catholic Canon law, and therefore with no rights to the now Christian Hungarian throne. According to the legend George went to Scotland and became the first ancestor of the Drummond family.[3]
