It was first mentioned in 1138 in the documents of Dömös Chapter as Villa Kara.
From 1229 it was a possession of the Diocese of Székesfehérvár, but in 1294 Somogyvár still had lands there. Its name appears in the papal tithe registation between 1332 and 1337. Pannonhalma Abbey had peasants there in 1336 and it was its own possession in 1466. In 1489 it was listed as the land of István Szerdahelyi. In 1485 it was a royal estate under the name Kiskara. It was also mentioned in 1536 in the tax register of Pannonhalma Abbey as the possession of Pál Dereskei and András Ispán. During the Turkish occupation the village lost its population. Kára was still uninhabited in 1757. It came in the hands of the Zichy family who settled Roman Catholic Germans there who gained tax benefits. In 1848 the settlement had 245 residents, half of them were German-speaking. In 1858 at the time of serfdom abolishing there were more than 50 lands.
