(Redirected from Ugric peoples)

The Ugrians[1][2] or Ugrics (Greek: Ουγγαροί, romanizedOungaroí) or Ugors, were the ancestors of the present-day Khanty and Mansi people. Their languages have long been thought to be closely related to the language of the Magyars of Hungary, in a Ugric branch of the Uralic language family, though that conclusion is contested. Regardless, all three languages are clearly Uralic.
