Komárom (Croatian: "Komoran", German: "Komorn", Serbian: "Komoran" or "Коморан") is a city in Hungary on the right bank of the Danube in Komárom-Esztergom county. [The fortress played an important role in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 andmany contemporary English sources refer to it as the Fortress of Comorn (eg. George Ripley, Charles Anderson. "The New American Cyclopaedia", D. Appleton and Company, 1860. [http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=iiXQ4MK_9nsC&pg=PA363&lpg=PA363&dq=Battle+of+K%C3%A1polna+Comorn&source=web&ots=uAg8CfinB_&sig=Gp0IOFGzNb_ig4FCIlFKdj4HIWw&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result#PPA362,M1 p. 362] )]

The city of Komárom was formerly a separate suburban village called "Újszőny". It was unified with the historical city of Komárom on the left bank of the Danube only in 1896. The city center was cut by the newly created border of Czechoslovakia in 1918 (the Czechoslovak part - now Slovak part - holds the name Komárno), and the development of the southern part only really began at that time.
