Schildebirge Province / Fejer County, Hungary, location is 20-25 miles WSW of Budapest, Hungary.  This is where the earliest "Donauschwabens" immigrated and settled before the  "Three Great Immigrations" began starting with the Caroline (1718-1737), Maria Theresia (1744-1772) and Josephinische (1772-1787).  These early settlers immigrated into Hungary circa 1695, purchased land and settled the area. The 2nd generation of the initial settlers began to immigrate into the Banat and once there were responsible in the creation of over 50 or more towns. (John Busch)

1921 The Treaty of Trianon & the Dismemberment of the Kingdom of Hungary

The Treaty of Trianon is the peace treaty concluded at the end of World War I by the Allies of World War I, on one side, and Hungary, seen as a successor of Austria-Hungary, on the other. It established the borders of Hungary and regulated its international situation. Hungary lost over two-thirds of its territory and about two-thirds of its inhabitants under the treaty.[1]. The principal beneficiaries of territorial adjustment were Romania, Czechoslovakia, and the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The treaty was signed on June 4, 1920, at the Grand Trianon Palace in Versailles, France.
