Description

Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos from 1299/1300 for the Monastery of Saint Niketas near Skopje and in the Serbian translation of the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the Tower of Hrusija of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos from 1299/1300 (or 1308). She was a landowner in Dobri Dolь before 1299 (ἀλλὰ δὴ καὶ τόπον καλούμενον Τομπρόδολον διήκοντα μέχρι τῆς Ῥαδούσης μετὰ τῶν ἐν αὐτῶ χωραφίων τῶν καὶ ποσουμένων εἰς πεντήκοντα στρέμματα, ἅπερ εἶχεν ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἡ Βορισίνα ἐκείνη/I drugo město Dobri Dolь: ōpirajetь do Raduše, s nivijemь ježe 50 vretenь, eže jestь kupila Borišica) and presumably founder of the Church of the Holy Mother of God in Skopje. The Byzantine Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos gave the church with the people, fields and vineyards to the Monastery of Saint Niketas near Skopje (ἐν ὧ δὴ καὶ προσεκύρωσε μονύδριον διακείμενον μὲν καὶ τοῦτο περὶ τὸν αὐτὸν τόπον τῶν Σκοπίων, εἰς ὄνομα δὲ τιμώμενον τῆς πανυπεράγνου Θεομήτορος καὶ οὕτω πως ἐπιλεγόμενονν τῆ̣ς̣ Β̣ορισίνης, μετὰ τῶν ἐν αὐτῶ προσκαθημένων ἀνθρώπων καὶ τῶν εὐρισκομένων ἀμπελίων καὶ χωραφίων). The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos donated the churc, the people on it with the fields and vineyards to the Tower of Hrusija of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos (U tomь Skopii drugaja crьkvi na ime Svetije Bogorodice, Borišičina, s ljudmi čto se ōbrětaju podь nomь i sь nivami i sь vinogradi).

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.
