Duke (or Tsar) Lazar Hrebeljanovi?

The Lazarevi? (Serbian Cyrillic: , pl. Lazarevi?i / ?, pronounced [laz?:r?v?it?]) was a Serbian medieval royal family, which ruled Moravian Serbia and the Serbian Despotate.

The dynasty began with Lazar Hrebeljanovi?, son of Pribac Hrebeljanovi?-a noble at the court of Du?an the Mighty. Lazar married Milica, supposedly a member of the reigning Nemanji? dynasty, and was later given the title "Knez" by Serbian Emperor Uro? the Weak. He gained lands in Central Serbia and through his ties with the Nemanji?s he became the regent of Moravian Serbia. In the Battle of Kosovo against the Ottoman Empire, Lazar was killed and Serbia became a vassal state, leading to the end of Serbian sovereignty.


Rulers of Moravian Serbia from 1371 to 1427.
