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.
