House of Garai

Garai or Garay (Croatian: Gorjanski) were a Hungarian-Croatian noble family, a branch of the Dorozsma (Durusma) clan, with notable members in the 14th and 15th centuries. They were lords of Csesznek.

Name and origin

The name means of Gara / Gorja (modern village of Gorjani near Đakovo in Croatia), their estate. By origin the Garai family was Hungarian, but since they frequently administered the southern regions of the Kingdom of Hungary, the South Slavic rendition of the surname is also used. Their old possessions were in Valkó county.[1]
