Legén's signature.

Miklóš Legén (Slovene: Mikloš Legen) was a Lutheran Slovene teacher in Martjanci (Kingdom of Hungary) in the Slovene March in the 17th and 18th centuries.

In 1710 he added his signature to the old Martjanci hymnal. The hymnal is the first Prekmurje Slovene work, dating from the 16th century, and it was later added to by various writers. Legén also wrote a few hymns in Prekmurje Slovene and completed the hymnal.
