Principality of Zeta
Principality of Zeta at the end of the 14th century
Principality of Zeta ( Serbian: ?; Montenegrin: Knja?evina Zeta) is a historiographical name for a late medieval principality located in the southern parts of modern Montenegro and northern parts of modern Albania, around the Lake of Skadar. It was ruled by the families of Bal?i?, Lazarevi?, Brankovi? and Crnojevi? in succession from the second half of the 14th century until Ottoman conquest at the very end of the 15th century. Previously, the same region of Zeta was a Serbian crown land, that had become self-governing after the fall of the Serbian Empire, when the Bal?i? family created a regional principality, sometime after 1360.
