Summary/Abstract: The study is devoted to the plans of the former Hungarian political elites for the inclusion of „new born“ Slovakia in Hungary. Several such plans arose immediately in the period 1918 – 1920, when the „Slovak question“ was regarded primarily as a solvable task on the way to renewal of the integrity of the historic Hungarian state. This fact was also reflected in the activities of the Budapest government circles, which established their own irredentist organizations and supported movements, which tried to undermine the idea of Czecho-Slovak statehood. Especially the groups of emigrants, who had voluntarily or involuntarily left the territory of the emerging Czechoslovak Republic, became substantially engaged in this direction.
