Right. The Kushan Empire was founded after the Greeks. Here's the timeline for the "Yue Zhi" (Tocharians) fleeing the Huns.

"They were Chinese" eh? But which Chinese from which part of China?

If the plot gets any thicker it will be heavier than my mother's custard pie.

The word Hungary (and variations used in most languages of western Europe) is derived from Greek, through Latin. The people we call Hungarians refer to their country as Magyarország. A Hungarian is a Magyar.

Foreign names for national groups often don't bother to track what those groups call themselves. See also: German/Deutsch, Welsh/Cymyi, Bushmen/San, etc.

To get to the other side, lol. Their prime goal was pillaging, and the usual dastardly activities, and they may have exhausted their sources on their original side. To gather wealth for themselves.

I know what they call themselves. I took a class in Hungarian, and have had Hungarian friends. What does that have to do with the issues we're discussing? Whether you call them Hungarians or Magyars, their historians still say they were originally a Turkic people.

An empire was a prestigious thing to have. The more territory you could amass, the greater. your reputation and prestige. Plus, you could collect all kinds of luxury goods from the peoples. you conquered, control trade routes, and amass great wealth, if you were in to that.
