The Čikulins appear in Croatian history in the sixteenth century. By judicious marriages and good husbandry they amassed a large amount of land. Among the most outstanding members of the family was Julije Čikulin (1580-1634) who managed the Vinodol estates of Nikola Zrinski and was an able merchant. Zrinski accused him of corruption and theft and took some of his estates. After the execution of Petar Zrinski Julije Čikulin's son managed to get back the estates (1685) and in compensation was also awarded Medvedgrad and Šestine, with their complete inventory, also the Zrinski mansion on St Mark's Square in Zagreb with complete furnishings. After Julije had lost his position as manager of the Zrinski Vinodol estates he moved to Lužnica, then a small estate belonging to his wife Sofij a Ratkaj . He made a great deal of money by trade and was able to purchase the greater part of the Susedgrad-Stubica domain. In 1613 the Croatian Sabor admitted him to the nobility. In 1628 he gained a baronecy, and in 1706 became a count. The last of the Čikulin family was Ivan Franjo (1681-1746).
