The Lacković are a formerly sovereign dynasty, of Croatian-Hungarian origin, which ruled Transylvania intermittently, in the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. The family also gave bans (viceroys) to Croatia, Slavonia, Dalmatia, and Bulgaria, Palatines to Hungary, as well as a viceroy to Naples. Also called Laczkffy and Lackfi (in Hungarian).


The Lacković family is a branch of the influential Kán family (members of the Hermány clan), which settled in Pannonia in 895, becoming Counts of Siklós in the year 900. The founder of the family is László II Kán. The descendants of his union with a princess from the Piast royal family of Poland took the name of Lacković (Lackfi in Hungarian), which means son of Lacko (or Laczk), which in turn is the diminutive form of the name László.
