A charter from 1424 mentions that King Andrew II of Hungary (1205- 1235) donated two villages in county Nitra to Merkúr of Moravia and married him to his relative, Margaret. It also states that the members of Koloni and Széki families were the descendants of Merkur. In áccordance with other sources Merkur seems to be identical to Mercurius banus of Slavonia, comes of Somogy (1205-1206), then Pressburg (1206), thence it follows that the unknown charter could be dated to cca. 1205. The author suggests that Margaret could be the aunt of King Andrew, daughter of King Géza II (1141-1162). This new piece of information proves one of the statements of Simon Kézai's Chronicle, i. e. that Mérk of Csákány and his brothers - the grandsons of Merkur - were the relatives of King Béla IV (1235-1270) and were offspring of Moravian dukes (actually barons). The author shortly examines the history of the descendants of Merkur and Margaret, the Csákányi, Rovi, Koloni and Széki families, until the extinction of their male lines in the first decades of the 15th century. These families together were referred to as Janur (Gyánúr) kindred by scholarship so far, from the name of their first known ancestor, Janur, who seems to have been the son of Merkur and Margaret.
