Description

In ca. 1299/1300 the Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320) donated the village of Mērana in (the župa of) Morava to the Monastery of Sveti Nikita (χωρίον διακείμενον εἰς τὴν Μοράβαν καὶ ἐπονομαζόμενον τὴν Μηράναν). In a charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328), at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), in ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos the donation of the respective village is confirmed (I selo u Moravě narekomoje Izmira). The forged transcript A of the collective charter of the Serbian King Milutin for the Monastery of Chilandar from the years 1303-1304 (or after 1331) reports that the village of S'mira in Morava was granted to the Monastery of Sveti Nikita near Skopje and afterwards to the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) in the vicinity of the Monastery of Chilandar by the Serbian King (i u Moravě selo S'mira ... To vʼse utʼvrьdivь i zapisavь dahь Svetomu Nikitě, a Svetago Nikitu dahь mojemu pirʼgu sь vʼsěmь jego utʼvrьždenijemь).

Skopje Sveti Nikita 1 Source In ca. 1299/1300 the Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320) issued a charter for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos, through which the possessions of the Monastery of Sveti Nikita in and near Skopje were confirmed.
Skopje Sveti Nikita 2 Source In ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328) confirmed, at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), the possessions of the Monastery of Sveti Nikita near Skopje for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos. This charter is only preserved in a Serbian translation. It seems plausible that Andronikos II had also issued a Greek charter in the years 1299/1300, because a parallel Byzantine charter on this topic is preserved by his Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320), which was issued most probably in the years 1299/1300 and in which most of the mentioned places had also been donated.
