Realm of Nikola Altomanovi?

Nikola Altomanovi? (Serbian Cyrillic: ) was a 14th-century Serbian ?upan of the House of Vojinovi?. He ruled the areas from Rudnik, over Polimlje, Podrinje, east Herzegovina with Trebinje, reaching as far as Konavle and Dra?evica, neighboring the Republic of Dubrovnik. He was defeated and blinded in U?ice (fortress U?ice) in 1373 by a coalition of his Serbian and Bosnian royals neighbors supported by the king of Hungary.[1]


Nicholas Altomanovi? lost their territories in conflict with a coalition of: Prince Lazar of Serbia, Bosnian ban Tvrtko and King Ludwig I. 1: The expansion of parts of Bosnia Nicholas Altomanovi? possession, after his defeat in 1373; 2: Temporarily taking Dra?evica, Konavli and Trebinje by Zeta (Balsic); 3: Today's borders of Montenegro.

His father was Altoman, a vojvod in Zeta. In 1363, Nikola's uncle Vojislav Vojinovi? was killed and Nikola used his uncle's death to gain a piece of his land. He allied himself with Lazar against King Vuka?in Mrnjav?evi? and they managed to persuade Uro? to support them. However, after Lazar pulled out at the critical moment they were defeated at Kosovo in 1369.[2]

In 1373, a military alliance against Nikola was created, which included Bosnian Ban Tvrtko I Kotromani?, Zetan Ruler ?ura? I Bal?i?, Ma?van Prince Nikola Gorjanski, and Hungarian King Ludovik I. In the same year, they battled against Nikola and Nikola lost, thus his territory was split between Prince Lazar Hrebeljanovi? of Serbia, ?ura? I Bal?i? of Zeta, and Ban Tvrtko I Kotromani? of Bosnia.

In fall of 1373, after the Serbian defeat against the Ottomans at the Battle of Maritsa he partitioned some lands with Lazar of Serbia.[1]
