According to the almost forgotten legend, as Prince Gábor Báthori was mustering up his army against the Turks, a frightening dragon appeared and tried to hinder the army’s procession. Somebody had to cross swords with the beast in order to avoid being delayed. The Prince was asked whether he dares taking the beast on. The answer was yes. At the location where the Prince uttered the word “yes”, the village called “Mérk” sprang up years later. (The word ‘merek’ in Hungarian means “I dare”.) The story runs mentioning that first it was the shoulder of the dragon that the Prince wounded. At the location where the wounding of the beast took place, the village “Vállaj” got created. (The word “Vállaj” means the lower portion of a shoulder.) When the Prince defeated the beast, he threw its lifeless body into a place where nettles were growing. Later, the village “Csanálos” (old Hungarian word referring to a place where nettles grow) got created at the location.
