Hungarian Royal Apple

The royal apple is the youngest of all the Hungarian royal jewels. Many believe that it came about around the first half of the the fourteenth century during the rule of Ludovit the Great. The two emblems on the apple is from the Anjou family. There is a gold apostolic cross on the top. The apple itself is a hollow gold-plated brass sphere that was originally filled with earth from Golgota.
