The place is inhabited from ancient times. Northwest of the village there are ancient kurgans. Roman remnants were also found. The first charter mentions it in 1255 as Mezlen. The village belonged to the servants of the Bishop of Győr. There was a ground fortress in the village neighbor: Világos. In 1910 the village had 640 Hungarian inhabitants.
The village has a beautiful church from the Árpád age. It was built in the 13th century, on the basis of architectural style elements. However, the church was mentioned in charter in 1430. In the 15th century the landowner was the Meszlényi family. In 1592 the church became the property of the Reformed Church.
