(Despotović) Uglješa Person He died probably as an infant before 1368. He was the child of Ioannes Unklesis and Euphemia. He became two icons as a baptismal gift from Theodosios, the Metropolitan of Serres. Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Ioan Uglješa) came to the Hilandar Monastery in order to bid farewell and commemorate his deceased son Uglješa (Prišьdšu že mi vь hramě prěsvetije Bogorodice Hilan’darě, i viděvь grobь gospodina mi i roditelja svetopočiv’šega kesara i sina mojego po plьti Uglješe; vь pomenь carьstva mi i gospodina mi i roditela kjesara i sina mi Ugleše). Euphemia composed a lament over the premature death of her son. Between 1368 and 1371 was the lament over Uglješa (Despotović) inscribed under the patronage of Euphemia on the silver revetment, which connected the two icons of Uglješa (Despotović) and made a diptych. Euphemia donated the diptych icon to the Hilandar Monastery for the salvation of the soul of her son. The tomb of Uglješa (Despotović) is situated in the northern side of the nave in the Hilandar katholikon.
(Murtinь) Leon Person Mentioned in the second and third charter (1343/1345) of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of Treskavec. He sold together with his brother a 100 kьbьl large field near Dupijačanje to the Treskavec Monastery (Niva kьblomь r. kupena ōtь Murtiněhь sinovь ōtь Lea i ōtь ........; megja ōtь kumanskoga puti do dolnega druma). He and his relatives apparently sold a half of watermill near Bělevo to the Treskavec Monastery (i druga voděnica kupena ōdь Murtiněhь polovinu). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the transactions in the second and third charter for the Treskavec Monastery.
(Paskačić) Vladko Person Mentioned in the charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan concerning the Church of Saint Nicholas in Psača from 1354/1355 and in the inscription accompanying his painted portrait in the Church of Saint Nicholas in Psača. The portrait of Vlatko was painted probably between 1365 and 1371. He appears as prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi in the charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. The inscription describes him as sevastokratorь vse srьpьske zemlie vladko. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan gave in 1354/1355 permission to his nobleman Vladko (Paskačić) to donate the Church of Saint Nicholas in Psača, which Vladko erected on the inherited property of his father Paskačь, together with the appertaining metochion to the Hilandar Monastery (I vьspomenu carstvu mi prěvьzljubljenʼny i pravověrnii vlastelinь carstva mi Vladko ō crьkvy svetago Nikoly jaže jestь sьzdalь na svoōi baštině Pʼsači a sь blagoslovljenijemь carstva mi...i poljubi prěd carstvomʼ mi i priloži svoju baštinu crьkvь svetago Nikoli na Psači prěsvetěi Bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsěmь metehōmь). The painted portrait of Vladko is preserved on the southern wall of the narthex in the Church of Saint Nicholas in Psača. The fresco displays him with his whole family. The representation of Vladko and his father Paskać, who are hoisting the model of the church to the icon of Saint Nicholas, can be described as an act of the joint ktetorship.
(Povika?) Radoslav’ Person Identical with Radoslav Chlapen (Radoslabos Chlapenos)?. The old editor of the charter read the passage in the manuscript, which described his occupation, as Tornik and explained the word as his family name. He appears in the sources from 1355 to 1368. The charter refers to him as κῦρ. He was the Governor of Prizren, 1355?, Governor of Serres and čelnik (κεφαλῆς κῦρ τζελνίκου τοῦ Ῥαδοσθλάβου), 1365-1368. He was a relative and an oikeios of the Serbian Empress Jelena (Helene), presumably her son-in-law (τοῦ οἰκείου τε τῆ κραταιᾶ καὶ ἁγία ἡμῶν κυρία καὶ δεσποίνη καὶ γαμβροῦ ταύτης). According to the hypothesis of Konstantin Jireček Radoslav was the brother of čelnik Miloš and logotet Gjurgь from the Povika family. His name was interpolated in the falsified chrysobull charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from 1355, which confirmed the Monastery of Saint Petar Koriški as a metochion for the Hilandar Monastery. It can be inferred from context of the charter that he was at that time Governor of Prizren. He was an assessor in the court summoned by Sabas, the Metropolitan of Serres. The court decided the dispute over a plot of land in the village Zetinon (Zintzu) and a Church of Saint George in favor of the Esphigmenu Monastery against the Kastamonitu Monastery. He signed in August 1365 the charter issued on this occasion in Slavonic (Kefalja Radoslav’). He wrote to the Ragusan republic and confirmed that the belongings of the deceased logotet Gjurgь were rightly bequeathed to his second brother Miloš. He issued the respective document „in domo suo in civitate Serrarum“ on the 15th May 1368.
(Privatovikь) Tripunь Person Mentioned in the land-inventory of the church of Saint Stephen in the village of Konče, which was created after the church became a possession of the Hilandar Monastery. He held a vineyard with an apple tree near the property of Stanьcь Skulija (i lozije Tripunovo pri Skulii i jablьka). He possessed also vineyard with a pear and cherry tree in the vicinity of the village Konče (i pri nimь lozije Tripuna Privatovika a u nemь kruša i črěšna). His vineyard with three mulberry and a pear tree neighboured the land of Duka (Tripunovo lozije pri Duce, a u nemь ·3· črьnice i kruša).
(Vlatković) Ugl(j)eša Person between 01.01.1359 and 31.12.1359 It is estimated that he was born around 1359. His last appeareance in the source is in 1423. He held the title of kesarь (kesarь Ugleša gospodarь Serblemь i Podunaju i vsěhь zapadnihь stranь). He was the son of Vladko (synь sevastokratōrovь Ugleša) and Vladislava. His son Stěfanь was buried in the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Ljubostinja. An inscription in the naos of the church, which was made between 1402 and 1405, is commemorating his son Stěfanь (A se leži Stěfanь kesara Ugleše). It is likely that the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. bestowed upon him the title of kesarь. Ugl(j)e)ša was apperently in a subordinate position to Konstantin Dragaš before 1395. After 1395 he became a vasall of the Ottoman sultan. Miloš Blagojević believes that Ugl(j)eša participated in the battle of Ankara in 1402. His role in the battle of Gračanica is described by Konstantin Kostenečki, who wrote the biography of the Despot Stefan Lazarević. He left the Ottomans in the beginning of the battle and defected to the army of Stefan Lazarević. On the side of despot he reconquested the region of Vranje, Inogošt and Preševo, which he inherited from his father (Běše že togda i kesarь Ugleša sь ismaility i tь mnogo služenije sьtvori sь sьlanijemь kь blagočьstivomu izь sihь sьvěty i kovy vьzvěštaje, taže po malě i samь priběgь podь krilě despotu Stefanu i zemlju svoju otьčьskuju Vranju i Inogoštu i Prěševo prějetь i udrьža). He fought in 1410 together with Stefan Lazarević in the battle of Kosmidion, where the Ottoman Prince Musa was defeated. The Byzantines escorted the army of Stefan Lazarević and Ugl(j)eša on their ships back to their homeland via Wallachia. His domains were attacked by the force of Musa in 1412. Musa plundered Vranje and endangered Novo Brdo. He donated in 1423 the Church of Saint Nicholas in Vranja with the village Vranje, all rights, boundaries, watermills, fields and meadows, the church of Saint Nicholas in Lučani with all rights and boundaries and the village Trnovac with all boundaries and rights to the Hilandar Monastery (blagověrni kjesarь Uglješa, imeja želanije i usrьdije i ljubovь kь prěčistyje vladyčice našei Bogomateri iže vь Svetěi Gorě Athona, carskije ōbiteli, domu prěčistyje vladyčice naše Bogorodice velikyje lavri Hiladara, dahь bo i prьvo crьkvu Svetago Nikolu u Vraniju tako i selomь Vranemь sь vsě pravinami sela togo, sь vsemi megjami i vodenicami, i s’ nivami i s livadami, i iněmь sь vsěmь. I crьkvu u Lučanehь Svetago Nikolu sь vsěmi pravinami i megjami sela togo. I selo Trьnovcь, sь vsěmi sinori i megjami i pravinami sela togo). The painted portrait of Ugl(j)eša as a child is preserved on the southern wall of the narthex in the Church of Saint Nicholas in Psača. He is depicted in the front of his grandparents Paskačь and Ozra.
(Čihorić [Drugović]) Dabiživь Person between 01.01.1362 and 31.01.1362 He was a member of the noble family of Čihorić in Trebinje. He had three brothers (župan Vratko, župan Nenac and tepčija Stepko). He served as a sluga for the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan 1334–1345. He was the Cupbearer (enohijarь) of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V in 1362. Dabiseus Drugouich bought in 1334 at Brskovo a horse from the inhabitant of Ragusa Miloš Hlapović for 30 perper. He came in 1343 to the župa Žrnovnica with Marcus Maurocenus in order to see the property of Sorento from Ragusa, which was near the boundary between the realm of the Serbian Kingdom and the Republic of Ragusa (ad uidendum confines Rusci de Sorento cum Dabiseo sluga). His name appears from 1343 to 1345 in the Liber omnium reformationum. According to it did the people of him cause frequently harm to the Ragusians in the župa Žrnovnica. The emissaries of the Republic of Ragusa complained before the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in October 1345 that Dabiživь established a fair in Trebinje and imposed a tax for the goods exported and imported by the Ragusans. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan accepted the complaints of the Ragusans and forbade Dabiživь to collect any taxes from the Ragusans (Piše kraljevstvo mi da jestь bědomo vsakomu, kako pridōše poklisarie, vlasteli dubrovьčьci, kraljevstvu mi pod Serь – Piro Grubešikь Marьtolь Črěvikь i Paske Gučetikь – i govoriše kraljevstvu mi na slugu Dabiživa, kako e učinilь trьgь na Trěbini i uzima ōd tovara dinarь kto grede i u Dubrovьnikь izь Dubrovnika, i ōd dobitka koi grede u Dubrov’nikь. i govorěe Dabiživь prědь kraljevstvomь mi: „uzimano e i prěžde, ōnazi carina ōnьdězii.“ A govorěke poklisarie dubrovьč’ci: „Tazi carina ne uzimana ōd veka, ōdkole světь stalь.“ I kraljevstvo mi iz’nage erě ne uzimana tazi carina i u moihь dědь i pradědь i u rodietelja kraljevstva mi i u kraljevstva mi. I sьtvori milostь kraljevstvo mi vsemь vlastelomь dubrovьč’cimь, vělimь i malimь, da ne ōnogazi trьga na Trěbini, kagō ga i prěžde ne bilo. I po sema sega da ne uzima Dabiživь Dubrovьčanomь ni carine da ni koega dohodьka, ni trьgov’cu dubrovьč’komu, ni vlahu, ni srьbinu, da nikōmu i k’to grede Dubrovьnikь, izь Dubrovьnika. I vsaci vlasteli koi te stagati po Dabiživě da ne uzima carine tezi do veka věk, ni u syna kraljevstva mi da ni u koga nastoeštago kralja u Srьblihь). In October 1349 he received together 10 perper from the Ragusans (In minori consilio, sono campane solito congregatio, captum fuit et firmatum de donando de havere communis Dabisco yppos X). He was probably buried in the Monastery Church of the Holy Mother of God at Treskavec near Prilep. His tombstone with an inscription has been preserved on the northern wall of the monastery church (měseca genara: uspe rabь božiei dabiživь: enohijarь: cara uroša: vьse srьbьskyi zemьle: grьčьskje: i pomorьskje vь leto: ѕ: ō: o: enьdikta).
Abrampakes Michael Person Mentioned in the sources from April 1346 to May 1355. He appears as οἰκεῖος and δοῦλος of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in the documents. He was a kephale (governor) of Serres in 1346. His mother was probably Eugenia Abrampakina Tatadena. Michael Abrampakes allowed Georgios Batatses Phokopulos to build a watermill. He issued a charter on this occasion. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the permission granted to Georgios Batatses Phokopulos by Michael Abrampakes in the prostagma charter from April 1346 (Ἐπεὶ ὁ οἰκεῖος τῆ βασιλεία μου κὺρ Γεώργιος ὁ Φωκόπουλος ἐδικαιώθε διὰ γράμματος τοῦ οἰκείου αὐτῆ κεφαλῆς τῆς θεοσώστου πόλεως Σερρῶν κὺρ Μιχαὴλ τοῦ Ἀβραμπάκη καὶ λοιπῶν ἀρχόντων τῆς βασιλείας μου καὶ τῶν ἐντιμοτάτων ἐκκλησιαστικῶν ἀρχόντων, ὥςτε ποιῆσαι σύνεγγυς τοῦ μύλωνος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕτερον ὑδρομύλωνα). His former estate is evidently attested in the land inventory the Monastery of Saint John Prodromos near Serres. The monastery bought his possession (ἕτερον ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ Ἀβραμπάκη). He signed in May 1355 the contract of his mother, who sold a large shop to the Monastery of Saint John Prodromos near Serres.

Alavanь Person Mentioned in the the chrysobull charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan, which confirmed the foundation of the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary by the Sebastokrator Dejan in the village of Arhiljevica and its landed property. The original charter has not come upon us and its content is preserved only in two later transcripts. The older one (Hil. 36) is probably an authentic transcript, but its dating is questionable, because it contradicts historical circumstances known from other reliable sources. Therefore, the date, when the lost orginal was issued, can only be approximated to the years 1354 or 1355. Hil. 150/152 differs from its predecessor in the dispositional section, containing two previously unmentioned villages which do not appear even in the Dragaš charter from 1378/1379. It was made in the 15th century or later with the intent of obtaining or confirming the enlargement of Hilandar's Arhiljevica metochion. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV. Dušan confirmed in the year 1354 or 1355 the Sebastokrator’s Dejan’s donation of several possessions to the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the village of Arhiljevica. In the boundary description of the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the village of Arhiljevica the part of land, which belonged to Alavanь, near the watermill is mentioned (A vo mege crьkvi matere Božijei Arьhilevьskoi. Ōtь krьsta putemь koi grede ōdь Podolěšanь u Stlьpčani, tere ōdь Stlьbičnogo děla, tere nis potōkь koi spada u Bělovodički potokь, tere nis potōkь bělovodički gde ishodi dolь na Klepala, tere prěhodi nadь jazь Parculeve voděnice, tere na Dobrišorь do mege Rugikě, tere uzь rěke Stlьpьčku, uzь dolь veli desni, tere na gradině děl u goru prěko više Matěja u Črьni Vrьhь, a ōdь Črьnoga Vrьha upravь na Kobilu, ōdь Kobile na Vodičnikь upravь. I ōdь Planinice putemь na Jablьčno, tere na kirь Todorovь ōdrь, tere po dělu na mramorь, tere na Alavanь deo u voděnicu).

He was asked together with others by the Bishop of Prizren, Geōrgii, and Markuš, to swear to tell the truth concerning the disputed land located on the hill called Pleš. He gave the testimony that at the time, when he was a child and his brother was the Archimandrite of the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo, the hill Pleš was not in Progonʼs possession (I reče kyr Aleksa: kьda běse moi bratь Vlaho jepiskopь u Htětově arhimudritь, toga běhь ja u manastiri dětetemь i dobrě znamь jere ne metehaše Progonь sь Plěšiōm, pače bě posějalь Progon ječmenь, i reče bratь mi Vlaho jepiskopь i sьbrahu gobeda vsego sela i popasoše ga).

He founded the church together with his wife Jelena, son Staniša and daughter Ana (Poče se: i sьzda se: božьstvьni, i vsečstnii hramь prěčistie vladičice naše bogorodice ōdigitrie: is temelna va dan prěvisokago kralě Uroša sь trudomь i sь pospešeniemь Iōvana velikago kaznca Dragoslava sь Elenomь sь podružjemь svoimь i Stanišomь synomь si i sь Anomь dьšteriju si vь lěto 6823 endikta 20).
Ananias Person Attested in the possessor note on the fol. 247 of the manuscript Ottob. gr. 405 from the 12th century preserved in the Vatican library. He was the Bishop in Strumica. The possessor note (αὕτη ἡ θεῖα καὶ ἱερὰ βίβλος ὑπάρχει τοῦ θεοφιλεστάτου ἐπισκόπου στρουμνήτζης ἀνανίου) does not mention any chronological details, when the book came in the possession of Ananias. Erich Trapp dates his occupation of the bishop’s office to the 14th century. Other scholars suggest that he was identical with Ananias, the Bishop of Strumica, who was active in the 16th century.
Ananze Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter from 1300 issued by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje.

He probably left Macedonia with his brother Dmitьrь following the meeting at Serres in winter 1393/1394, because they refused to serve the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid I. He and his brother Dmitьrь came in summer 1394 to Dubrovnik. They received on 10th August 1394 374 perper and 6 grossi from the treasury of their father, which was deposited at the place of the nobleman Pavle Barabić (Paulus de Baraba).

Benedikt Kuripešič Person between 01.01.1490 and 31.12.1490 'Little is known about Benedict Curipeschitz. He was born around 1490 in Oberburg in Southern Styria, modern Gornji Grad in Slovenia. Although he was of Slovenian origin, he regarded himself as a citizen of the German Holy Roman Empire: in his Itinerarium he remarks that he and his companions in Constantinople missed nothing ‘except for our German freedom’ (das unns nichts abganngen, dann allain unnser Teutsche freyheit, ed. Neweklowsky, p. 79). In 1508 Curipechitz was enrolled at the University of Vienna, and in 1525 he appears as a notary public in Laibach (modern Ljubljana). He was proficient in Slovenian, German and also Latin, which he probably learnt at the diocesan collegiate chapter at Oberburg, which had been established after 1473 when the monastery was closed by Pope Sixtus IV. It is most likely that his language skills led to his appointment as an interpreter as part of a diplomatic mission sent by King Ferdinand I of Hungary to the Ottoman Sultan Süleyman I in 1530, immediately after the first Ottoman siege of Vienna in 1529. Further details of his life after the return of the mission to Germany on 2 February 1531, and the date of his death are unknown. Curipechitz left two works, the Itinerarium and the Disputation."

They granted him all rights of the church together with the land, the people, the vineyards, watermills, bought estates, estates given for the sake of soul and hunting grounds.

Bladimer Person Mentioned in the prayer inscription on the southern pilaster in front of the apse of the Church of Saint Nicholas in Melnik from 1274/1275. He appears as a sebastos in the inscription. His brother was the sebastos Frangos. He commisioned probably the fresco decoration of the Church of Saint Nicholas in Melnik (δέησις τοῦ δούλου τοῦ θεοῦ σεβαστοῦ τοῦ Βλαδιμήρου αὐταδέλφου σεβαστοῦ τοῦ Φράγγου).
Blukasinos Demetrios Person 26.09.1371 The name Demetrios is attested in the memorial book (pomenik), which has been preserved at Protaton in Karyes on Mount Athos (Protaton 340 [113], 1v: Ἔτι δεόμεθα ὑπὲρ μακαρίας μνήμης καὶ ἀφέσεως τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν τῶν ἀειμνήστων δούλων τοῦ Θεοῦ Δημητρίου κράλη καὶ Ἰωάννου δεσπότου καὶ τῶν σὺν αὐτοῖς ἀναιρεθέντων ὀρθοδόξων χριστιανῶν). He died on 29th June 1371 during the battle against the Ottomans at Černomen/Marica. He held the dignity of Despot from January 1364 to September 1365 according to G. Ostrogorsky (Sь že Vlьkašin spodobi se ōt njego čьsti despotatskago sana, potom že i věnčavajetь jego). He worked as a royal wine-pourer (οἰνοχόος) of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. He held the position of Župan in Prilep, 1350/1351 (pri županě Vlьkašinu...vь dьnь blagověrnago cara našego Stefana i syna mu Uroša i carice Elene...kьga se ōtvrže Berь). He witnessed the apparently falsified charter issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V in 1355 for the inhabitants of the town of Kotor as he held the position of čelnik (e zeonich Vucasin). In January 1366 ugodni vlastelin Novakь Mrasorovikь addressed the request to the Serbian Despot Ioan Uglješa (Ioannes Unklesis) and also the Serbian King Demetrios Blukasinos to approve his donation of the village Koprivljane to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos. Both of them confirmed the endowment of Novakь Mrasorovikь to the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos in a separate chrysobull charter (kralь Vlьkašinь blagōvěrni Srьblemь i Grьkomь). In November 1366 he is mentioned as king in the archives of the Ragusan republic. He is attested in the Ragusan archives with name and the title of king for the first time in April 1367 (domino regi Rassie Volchassino). He was probably a co-ruler of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. between 1365 and 1368/1369. This is proven by the fact that his portrait is next to Stefan Uroš V. on the northern wall of the narthex in the Church of Saint Nicholas in Psača, they appear together on coins and they both accept embassies from the Ragusan republic. The situation changed in 1368/1369. The ktitorial inscription of Nobakos, apparently identical with Novakь Mrasorovikь, in the Virgin Maryʼs Church in Mali Grad mentions that the decoration of the church was painted during the reign of the highest king Demetrios Blukasinos (Άνηγέρθη ἐκ βάθρου καὶ κόπού καὶ μόχθοῦ ὁ θεϊος κὲ πάνσεπτος ναώς ουτος της υπεραγίας δεσπίνης ἡμων Θεοτόκου καὶ ἀνηστορίθην παρὰ του αὐφθέντου αὐτοῦ πὰνευτυχεστάτου κέσαρος Νοβάκου ἠγουμενέβῶντὸς δὲ Ἰωνὰ μοναχοῦ. Αὐφθεντεύβοντος πανυψηλοτάτου κραλήου τοῦ Βεληκασίνου. Άρχαηερατεύωντος δὲ τῆς ἀγιωτάτης ἀρχιεπησκοπῆς τῆς Πρότης Ἰουστινηανης, ετους ͵ςωοζʹ). It seems, that Demetrios Blukasinos took all the power immediately after the victory over the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V and his coalition at the Kosovo field in 1369. The proof that he ruled without Stefan Uroš V is the charter for the Ragusan republic issued on 5th April 1370, which he signed alone by himself (gospodina zem’li srьbьskoi i Grьkōmь i zapad’nimь stranamь...vь Hrista Bōga blagověrni i hristōljubïvi Vlьkašinь kralь). The Koporinjski and Pećki letopis (chronicle) recorded that the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. was expelled by Demetrios Blukasinos and his brother Ioannes Unklesis before the battle near the river Marica. A fragment of choros from 1365–1371 originally placed in the Saint Demetrius Monastery near the village Sušica (the so-called Marko’s Monastery), now in collection of the museums in Skopje, Sofia, Istanbul a Belgrade, with installed medallions bearing the name Vlьkašinь and the title of a king, confirm the suggestion, that he governed as a sole ruler. The priestmonk Mihailo wrote the Apostol manuscript from 1365–1371 at Lešnica in the region of Polog for the priest Miho in Debreše during the reign of the King Demetrios Blukasinos (Pisase sija kniga mnogogrěšnogo rukoju ieromonaha Mihaila popu Mihě iz Debreše Nikolinu synu…Azь ōbrěmeneni i ōkajanьni pisahь vь dьni Vlьkašina kralja, kьdi drьžaše Grьgurь Pologь, a pisavši beše iz Lešnice, nierei mnih’). His father was Margnaua (Orbini)/ Margna (Luccari), who was a poor nobleman from Livno in Hum. His brother was Ioannes Unklesis (Ioan Uglješa) and his sister Helene. The husband of his sister was Nikolaos Radochnas (Νικόλαος ῾Ραδόχνας, Nikola Radonja). He was married to Lena. They had together four sons (Marko, the King, Andrěašь, Dmitьrь, Ivanišь) and one daughter (Olivera). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan took his father and the family of Mrnjavcević to the Serbian court. The domains of Demetrios Blukasinos were in the southern Serbia, Kosovo and in the northwestern parts of historical Macedonia with strongholds in Prilep and Skopje. Since 1345/1346/1347 the Saint Demetrius Monastery near the village Sušica (the so-called Marko’s Monastery) was built under the patronage of Demetrios Blukasinos and his sons (Izvōlenïemь ōtca i voplьšenïem sina i sьšestviemь svetago duha ōbnovi se i popisa si svety i božestavni hramь svetago velikōmučenika Hristova pobědōnosca i myrotočьca Dimitrija sь usrьdïemь i potštanïemь blagověrnago kralja Vlkašina sь blagověrniei kralice Eleny i sь prěvazljublenym eju i prьvorodnimь sinomь blagověrnimь kraljemь Markomь i Andreašemь i Ivanïšemь i Dimïtrom vь lěto ·ѕ·ō·p·e· si že monastirь nače se zdati lěto ·ѕ·ō·n·g· vь dni blagověrnago cara Stefana i hristoljubivago kralja Vlьkašina a sьvrši se vь dьni blagověrnago i hristoljubivago kralja Marka). His fresco portrait is above the south gate of the monastery and flanks with the portrait of his son Marko the bust of Saint Demetrius. The Historia della casa Musachia records, that Andrea II Musachi defeated the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan or Demetrios Blukasinos at the Pelister Mountain. After 1361 Demetrios Blukasinos was very influential on the Serbian court, because the Ragusans often wrote letters to him. He deposited a treasury in Ragusa (denarii quondam regis Volchassini), which was withdrawn by his sons totally not until 1399. In summer 1371 Demetrios Blukasinos marched to Zeta, where he assisted his relative Đurađ Balšić in his war against Nikola Altomanović. Demetrios Blukasinos waited in Skadar for the naval support from the Ragusan republic. Despot John Uglješa informed his brother by letter about the invasion of the Turks to Europe. Demetrios Blukasinos and his brother commanded the Serbian forces, which fought against the Ottoman army commanded by the Beglerbeg Lala Şahin Pasha and Evrenos near the village Černomen on 26th September 1371. His portrait and its accompanying inscription (Vь hrista boga blagověrni kralь Vlьkašin) has been preserved on the southern part of the entrance to the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael at Prilep. The inscription in the chapel of the Panagia Eleousa on the shore of Lake (Great) Prespa, which mentions the three patrons of the church, gives detail about the date of the repainting (1410) and the name of the ruler, who was Demetrios Vlukasinos. The possibility of a later local ruler with the same name cannot be excluded, but a more probable version is that the construction of the church was realised during the rule of Demetrios Vlukasinos (Ανηγέρθει καὶ ἀνιστωρίθει ὁ Θείος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς τὴς Ὑπεραγίας Δεσποίνης ἠμῶν Θεοτόκου καὶ Ἀειπαρθένου Μαρίας διὰ σὶνδρομὶς κόπου τε καὶ ἐξόδου τοῦ τιμίὅτατου εν ἰερομονάχοις κῦρου Σάβα καὶ κῦρου Ἰακόβου καὶ Βαρλαὰμ τῶν κτητόρων. Αὐθέντης ὁ Βλουκασίνος. Ἐπἷ ἒτους ϛπιη).
Bobešanь Person Mentioned in the the so-called „zbirna hrisovulja” of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan, which has been preserved in four transcripts in the library of the Monastery Hilandar. They are dated between 1303/1304 and 1336/1340-1342/1345. He was the father of Draganь. Hrelja Dragovol erected the Church of Saint Archangel Michael in the town of Štip. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the act of Hrelja’s donation of the Church of Saint Archangel Michael to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian King bought courtyards, watermills, vineyards and added these possessions to the endowment of Hrelja.

Bogota Person Mentioned in the inventory of property of the Church of Saint Stephen in the village of Konče. He possessed a vineyard with two cherry trees, which was located near the priest Filip (lozije Bogotevo pri popě Filipe a u nemь ·2· črěšьni).
Boichnas Person between 01.09.1370 and 31.08.1371 It it doubtful, that he is the same person as „lo jupan Voichna“, who appears in the charter of Vladislav, the son of the former Serbian King Dragutin, adressed to Ragusan authorities from the 25th October 1323. The confirmed terminus ante quem of his decease is September 1370/August 1371 (Prišьdšu že mi vь hramě prěsvetije Bogorodice Hilan’darě, i viděvь grobь gospodina mi i roditelja svetopočiv’šega kesara). It is possible that he was already death in 1369, because the Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa) approved in this year the donation of the Church of the Saint Archangels Michael and Gabriel above Gabrovo granted by Kaisar Boichnas (Voihna) for the monk and spiritual father Daniil (Kako pride kь carьstvu mi čьstni starьcь duhovьnikь kyrь Daniil…Mihaila i Gabrila više Gabrova, i prinese mi zapisanie gospodina….roditelě mi kesara, i viděhь pročtohь čto jestь zapisalь i….kesarь Voihna, i ini hristoljubivi crьkvi onoizi ljud…..zemle: bystь hotěnije carьstvu mi kudě godě mu se što nahodi……hru….ljud…..vinogradь, perivolja, ili i mlinь, ima hotěnije carьstvo mi kako da je……vь věkomь, i da jestь pace svobodna, nikiimь nepotьknovlenno….). He appears as vlastelinь, surodnikь carьstva mi bratučedь Voih’na in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Hilandar Monastery from 1348. He is mentioned as kaisar/kesar in 1351 (Voicha chiessar) and 1355 (Voichna chiesar) in two forged documents of the Serbian Emperors for the town Kotor translated into old Italian. Attested as kaisar and kesarь from 1357 to 1371 (Βοΐχνας ὁ Καῖσαρ). He was the governor of the town Drama in 1357 according to the Byzantine historian Ioannes Kantakuzenos (ὁ δὲ τῆς πόλεως, ἧς ἦρχεν, ἀποδημῶν, Δράμα δὲ ἦν). Sima Ćirković suggests that he held unter his control a much bigger region corresponding with the ruling area of his son-in-law, the Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa). In a later charter of Iakobos Kutaches Philanthropenos Tarchaneiotes from 1405 he is erroneously described as κράλης. His daughter was Euphemia (Jefimija/Elena). He was the father-in-law of the Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed in 1348 at the intervention of his nobleman and most probably also relative Voih’na the previous donation of the village Potolino in the valley of the river Struma to the Hilandar Monastery (I tu vьspomenu carstvu mi vlastelinь, surodnikь carьstva mi bratučedь Voih’na, ō izvěstneišemь po utvrьždeni sela Potolina, iže bě priložilo i po prěžde carьstvō mi Hilan’daru...I po blagosrьdnomu moljeniju i blagoutrobiju kь v’semь svetimь i božьstvnimь crьkvamь bratučeda mi Voih’ne, darova carьtvō mi vь postrum’skomь prědělě: Seloō Potolinovo sь zasel’ci i periōromь, s megjami i sь dohoci sь v’semi pravinami sela togoō). After the death of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan he was a prominent figure in the circle of the Dušan’s widow Jelena (Helene). He encouraged Mathaios Kantakuzenos at first to invade the territory of Eastern Macedonia. He then betrayted him and joined the army of Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. He defeated Mathaios Kantakuzenos at Philippoi in Macedonia in 1357. Mathaios Kantakuzenos was imprisoned by him. He handed over Mathaios Kantakuzenos in summer 1357 to the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos for a ransom. The Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa) confirmed in 1358 an endowment of his mother-in-law, the wife of Boichnas, for the Kutlumus Monastery (ὅπερ ἐπροσίλοσεν ἡ ἁγία μου κυρία ἡ Κεσάρισα πρὸς αὐτὴν τὴν μονὴν ἐν τι τοποθεσία τὴ ἐπικεκλημένι ἡ Προυνέα χάριν ψυχηκὴς δωρεὰς αὐτῆς ζευγαρίων τεσσάρον... ἐγὼ Οὔγλεσις μέγας βοεβόδας ἀπὸ τὴς αὐτοῦ ἐλεημοσίνης τοὺ αὐθέντου ἡμῶν τοὺ πανευτυχεστάτου δεσπότου καὶ τοὺ ἀδελφοὺ αὐτοὺ τοὺ [...τ...]ου μου στέργο καὶ βεβεῶ τὰ τιαύτα χωράφια εἰς τὴν Προυνέαν γὴν ζευγαρίων τεσάρον ὅπος νέμωσην οἱ τιαύτοι μοναχοὶ τὴς θείας βασιλεικῆς μονῆς τοὺ Κουτλουμούσι ἀκολείτος). The Metropolitan of Drama in 1359 gave his consent to return the metochia of Theotokos Koriliotissa and Hagioi Anargyroi to the Batopedi Monastery after the involvment of Boichnas and his wife. Boichnas and his wife endowed the Batopedi Monastery with the church of Saint Photeine. Boichnas was buried in the Hilandar Monastery at Mount Athos.
Bojko Person He held a possession near the village Matka at the river Treska by the time his mother Dьnica erected the Church of Saint Nicholas in Ljuboten (sьzida se sii božьstvьnyi hramь svetago velikago ōca nikoly podvigomь i trudomь gospožde dьnice vь dьni stefana kralě dušane a drьžaše synь starěi boiko matku a drugi synь zvečanь sitnicomь lěto ѕ. ōm. e.).

His garden near the garden of Vlčina was bought by Duke Dmitrь ((I sь one strane kupi vojevoda odь Radomirova perivolja što se nahodi i sь nameti i sь kipuriami do Vlьčinine gradine).

Among the donated people were freemen from the Byzantine Empire, who came at the time when the Turks plundered Anatolia and were well received on the churchʼs land by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. Their arrival might have a connection with the presence of the Serbian troops under the command of Novakь Grěbostrěkь in Anatolia. One of the migrants was Borilo (I kьdi plěniše Turʼci Anatoliju, tьdii prïidoše slobodni ljudije izь Grьkьь na crьkovnu zemlju pri svetomь krali; a se imь imena: Gradislavь, Radь Ohreda, Murьtatь Nanevь bratь, Stanilo i Nikita, Murʼta Prěkočelь, Borilo).

He was the lord of the village Něžičino (Boroslavь gospodar Nežičʼki).

Branko Person Mentioned in the the chrysobull charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan, which confirmed the foundation of the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary by the Sebastokrator Dejan in the village of Arhiljevica and its landed property. The original charter has not come upon us and its content is preserved only in two later transcripts. The older one (Hil. 36) is probably an authentic transcript, but its dating is questionable, because it contradicts historical circumstances known from other reliable sources. Therefore, the date, when the lost orginal was issued, can only be approximated to the years 1354 or 1355. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated the village Kolicko to the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the village of Arhiljevica. Branko’s boundary mark (a burnt area) is mentioned in the delimitation of the village Kolicko (A vo mege sela Kolicka: ōdь gumništa Čaikova prěko po srědě prokopannьnoga puta, tere po srědě Skačkova selišta na sipanu mogilu na drumь drobnihь krьstьcь, tere niže Běžana gde jestь kamenь na kameni, tere niz brьdo na Brankove žigove).

Zagorka Rasolkoska-Nikolovska proposed that Bratanь came from Macedonia to the road called after the village Kozjak (da dodohomь na ptь Kosnačiki).

He controlled the larger part of today’s Kosovo. His dominion reached the eastern parts of Raška, the Polimlje in Montenegro and since 1376/1377 Skopje in the east. After the death of Đurađ I Balšić (13th January 1378) he seized the town of Prizren, Peć and the area of Metohija. He minted his own coins and issued charters. He was the son of Prankos Mladenes (ja Grьgurь i bratь mi Vlьkь, synove velikago sevastokratora Bran’ka gospodina že gradu Ohridu).

The terminus post quem for the entry regarding the family of the Despot Ioannes Liberos (᾿Ιωάννης Λίβερος, Jovan Oliver) is 1353. He died on 25th November of an unspecified year. This date of memorial service is recorded by a later hand in the Oliver’s menaion from 1342 (Belgrade, National Library, Old collection Nr. 62, fol. 134v: Prěstavi se Dabiživь vь ·k·e· sego měseca) and also in the Lesnovian gospel from the 14th century (Zagreb, HAZU, Collection of A. Mihanović, Nr. 65, fol. 114: prěstavi se rabь boži Dabiživь vь ·k·e· sego měseca).

Damianos (1) Person It is very unlikely that he is the same person as Damijan, the Bishop of Prizren. The latter is attested in the collective charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Tower of Hrusija of the Hilandar Monastery on Mount Athos (jepiskupomь prizrěnskymь Damijanomь). Before 1307 he together with the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin took the fields near the Church of Holy Mother of God at Trhalě not far from Trěboš in Polog from Žegrь and they set his houses on fire (I u Trěboši pri crьkvi svetyje bogorodice pri Trьhalě nivije crьkovno što bylo ōt věka. I uzeli jesu byli Položani, i iznašьlь je roditelь kraljevьstva mi sь jepiskopomь Damijanomь i sь iepiskopomь Iliōmь, i ōtjelь ōt Žegra, i kušte mu popalilь). He was still alive in 1307 according to the ktitorial inscription of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin, which is preserved in the apse of the Church Bogorodica Ljeviška in Prizren (Stefan Urošь kralь hristě bozě blagověrьnь kralь srьbskyh i pomorskihь prěvnukь svetago simeōna nemane i zetь cara grьčkago kirь andronika paleōloga ponovihь hramь svetie bogorodice lěviške ot samogo ōsnovanija i ja směreni popь prizrěnьsky damijanь trudyhь se vь lěto ѕ ѱ ei). Damianos is mentioned in the sermon of the Byzantine writer Theodoros Metochites, who undertook the task to arrange the marriage of the Byzantine princess Simonis with the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. He was a Monk. He accompanied Dukaites around 1298 at the request of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš Milutin to Constantinople (κἀγὼ μὲν αὐτίκα τὸν καλὸν Δουκαίτην ἐς βασιλέα· καὶ αὐτὸς δὲ οὕστινας οἶσθα, σὺν αὐτῷ πέμπομεν, Δαμιανόν τινα αὐτὸν οἶμαι ὄνομα μοναχὸν).

The chapel was erected between the years 1347–1350. Ioannes Liberos together with his wife and their son Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) are depicted within the ktitorial composition on the western wall of the chapel. Ioannes Liberos, Maria Liberissa, Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) and Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) sponsored a new narthex as a addition to the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo. The painted ktitorial composition with Ioannes Liberos, Maria Liberissa (Μαρία Λιβέρισσα, Ana Marija), Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) and Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) is on the northern wall of the narthex. The fresco inscription above the entrance from the narthex to the naos gives details about the donors and the date 1349, when the narthex was decorated (Ἀνηγέρθη ἐκ βάθρων, καὶ ἀνηστορίθη ὁ θεῖος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς τοῦ ταξιαρχου Μιχ δι’ ἐξόδου τοῦ πανευτυχεστάτου δεσπότου Ιωάννου τοῦ Λύβερί. καὶ τῆς πανευτυχεστάτης βασιλείσης Μαρίας τῆς Λυβερίσης καὶ τῶν τέκνων αὐτῶν, Κραίκου καὶ Δαμιανοῦ. ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλεί Στεφάνου καὶ Ἐλένης, καὶ τοῦ ύιοῦ αὐτῶν κράλη τοῦ Οὐροσι μηνὶ αὐγύστῳ ѕʹ ἔτους ϛωνζ ἰνδ β).

The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the act of Hrelja’s donation of the Church of Saint Archangel Michael to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian King bought courtyards, watermills, vineyards and added these possessions to the endowment of Hrelja. Stefan Uroš IV Dušan also gave 50 people from the suburb of Štip to the Church of Saint Archangel Michael (I prida kraljevьstvo mi crьkvi arhïstratigu ōt pod’gradija štip’skago .n. ljudi).

Dmin᾿ko Person He was probably already dead in 1343. He lived in Mel. He donated a 30 dnin field under the traverse road for the salvation of the soul to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo (Niva što je dalь Dmin᾿ko ōd Mela za dušu, 30 dьninь, nizь prěčni putь).
Dmitrь (1) Person He was probably already dead in 1343. He lived in Želino. He donated the field called Trstěnica with meadows in Nikiforovec, which was situated in the vicinity of Vladimirʼs field, for the right to have a grave and tonsure to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo (Niva Trьstěnica u Nikiforov᾿ci i s livadomь blizь Vladimirove nive, što jestь dalь Krasevь unukь, Dmitrь ōtь Želina, za grobь i za postrigь).

The second son of Dьnica held Zvečan by the time his mother erected the Church of Saint Nicholas in Ljuboten (sьzida se sii božьstvьnyi hramь svetago velikago ōca nikoly podvigomь i trudomь gospožde dьnice vь dьni stefana kralě dušane a drьžaše synь starěi boiko matku a drugi synь zvečanь sitnicomь lěto ѕ. ōm. e.). Ivan M. Đorđević discovered a monogram on the lintel of the western entrance of the Church of Saint Nicholas in Ljuboten. He interpreted the monogram as the name Dmitrь and associated it with the second son of Dьnica.
Dmitrь (3) Person Probably identical with the duke Dmitrь. He is attested for the first time as milostnikь (guarantee of the legal procedure) in the charter of the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for the Hilandar Monastery concerning the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael in Lesnovo from 15th August 1381. He is also mentioned in the charter of the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for the Hilandar Monastery from the year 1388 and the confirmation charter of the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for the Church of Ascension in the Štip from 26th March 1388, which has been preserved in the Monastery Hagios Panteleemon on the Holy Mount Athos. The expression „istini i vьsesrьdьčni surodnikь i brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь“ used in both charters was perceived by Matanov as a description of blood relationship between Konstantin Dragaš and Dmitrь. Matanov assumes that Dmitrь was the son of Dejan (Dragaš) and Konstantin was his brother. Dmirь got three villages (Kozjak, Rurak and Krivi Dol) as his inherited property from the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for his loyal service (I sela iže jestь iznašьlь brat gospodstva mi vojevoda Dmitrь, iže mu jestь darovalo gospodstvo mi za jegovo pravověrno porabotanie). Dmitrь bought before 1388 an estate in the town of Štip and erected the Church of Ascension on this place (I město ježe jestь iznašьlь bratь gospodstva mi Dmitrь vojevoda i kupilь u Štipu gradu sь v’sěmi pravinami města togo, ideže i sьzidalь otь osnovania crьkvь Vьznesenia Gospoda Boga i spasa naša Iisusa Hrista). Dmitrь endowed the Church of Ascension in Štip with the three villages and other properties and asked the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš to legalise his donation. The Serbian Despot confirmed his endowment in front of witnesses. Probably in the same year Dmitrь petitioned the Serbian Despot again. He donated the Church of Ascencion in Štip with the possessions and rights to the Hilandar Monastery. Konstantin Dragaš allowed and confirmed the transaction of Dmitrь in a separate charter). Mentioned in the supplicant inscription on the facade above the southern door of the Church of the Presentation of the Virgin in Kučevište. The inscription can be dated between 1331 and 1334. His parents were Dejanь and Vladislava. His brother was Iō(v)anь. He appears in the supplicant inscription on the facade above the southern door of the church of the Presentation of the Virgin in Kučevište (Primi gdi moleniie rabe svoie Vladislave i čěda eie Iōvana i Dmitra bg da ihь pomene v carstva svoemь).
Dmitьrь Person between 01.07.1407 and 31.12.1410 Vladimir Ćorović suggested that Dmitьrь was the patron of the fresco painting of the Saint Nicholas in the lunette of the Church of Saint Nicholas in Prilep (primi gospodi molenie raba svoego dimitra). Gojko Subotić showed that the corresponding inscription was made in 1477/1478. He is mentioned in the sources from 1376/1377 to 1412. He died after 30th June 1407 and before 1410. A certain terminus ante quem is the charter of the Court judge Simon Rozgonyi from 29th July 1412, where the death of Dmitьrь is attested (tempore mortis condam Demetrij filij Vilkuli, Regis tunc similiter Castellani de Wylagusuar). He appears as kraljevikь, dominus, viro magnifico ac spectabili in the sources. He held the position of the castellanus of the town Világos (now Şiria), 1404–1409/1410? and comes comitatus of the Zaránd (now Arad) county, 1404–1407/1408. He was the son of the Serbian King Demetrios Blukasinos and Lena. His siblings were Markos, Andrěašь, Ivanišь and Olivera. He is attested in the ktitorial inscription above the south door in the interior of the Church of the so-called Marko’ Monastery (Saint Demetrius Monastery in Sušice near Skopje), which was completed in 1376/1377 (Izvōlenïemь ōtca i voplьšenïem sina i sьšestviemь svetago duha ōbnovi se i popisa si svety i božestavni hramь svetago velikōmučenika Hristova pobědōnosca i myrotočьca Dimitrija sь usrьdïemь i potštanïemь blagověrnago kralja Vlkašina sь blagověrniei kralice Eleny i sь prěvazljublenym eju i prьvorodnimь sinomь blagověrnimь kraljemь Markomь i Andreašemь i Ivanïšemь i Dimïtrom vь lěto ·ѕ·ō·p·e· si že monastirь nače se zdati lěto ·ѕ·ō·n·g· vь dni blagověrnago cara Stefana i hristoljubivago kralja Vlьkašina a sьvrši se vь dьni blagověrnago i hristoljubivago kralja Marka). After the death of his father in 1371 he remained at the court of his mother Lena.

The last part of the treasury was reserved for their brother King Markos (denarii quondam regis Volchassini....due partes Andree et Dymitrio, filiis et heredibus condam regis Volcasini, mandato prescripti domini rectoris perperos trecentos septuaginta quatuor et grossos sex, tertia parte dictorum yperperorum reservata pro Marcho rege).

He also picked up the last part of the treasury of his father on this occasion. Before he received the money, he had to prove that no legitimate heirs of King Marko exist (partem depositi, quod posuit ipse dominus rex Volchassin, que spectabat Marcho eius fratri, probando ipso Dymitras nobis, quod ipse Marchus non dimisit heredes legitimos). In 1400 Dmitьrь stayed in the town of Dubrovnik as an envoy of the Hungarian King Sigismund according to the charter of the Ragusan Republic for the Grand duke Hrvoje Vukčić. Dmitьrь asked the Ragusians to not relaese the Ottoman embassy to the Sultan (ōvьde se naměri Dmitьrь kraljevikь i tьdi se prigōdiše posli Turačski u našemь grafu da minu prěko mora. Doide k namь Dmitьrь mole da ihь ne propustimo, a mi tozi ništorь ne čusmo propustismo ihь, i prigōše slobodno tolikog je i dьnasь i vьzda mogu vsakōi posli slobodno poki). The Ragusan archives record between 20th and 22th December 1402 that Dmitьrь collected the tribute for the Hungarian King Sigismund.

The Hungarian King Sigismund issued on 30th June 1407 a charter, where he appealed on Dmitьrь to give up the acts of violence towards the possession of Sigismundus, who was the son of Ban Ladislaus, the lord of Lučenec (Losonci) at Pankota (now Pâncota).

The Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos was according to Nikephoros Gregoras in so dire situation, that he even proposed a marriage between his son Manuel and the daughter of Liberos. Ioannes Kantakuzenos gives account of the effort of Ioannes Liberos to realise the marriage between his daughter and Manuel Kantakuzenos. Ioannes Liberos brought even the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan to convince the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos in regard of the engagment beween the daughter of Oliver and Manuel. Dьnica (Danica) is attested in the Lesnovo pomenik along with her family as a ktitorica (Poměni, gospodi, blagočьstivyihь ktitorь našihь vь carstvi si: Olivera děspota, i podružie Mariju, i čeda ihь: Dьnicu, Kraika, Damiana, Vidoslava, Dabiživa, Rusina, Olivera).

A marble slab in the narthex of the church dedicated to her bears three inscriptions. The monogram is written in Greek and describes the slab as her tombstone (Τάφος Εἰρῄνης θυγατρός Μιχαήλ Κριβαβατζιτζ?). The slavic inscription contains the details concerning the death of Eirene (měseca julě ki dьnь prěstavi se raba božija erina kьki mahaila krьvavčiikě? ѕ ō o ie). The last Greek inscription in four dodecasyllables gives an account of her old and noble descent (Σὺ δ’ εἰπὲ, λίθε τίνα κρατεὶς νεκρόν κόρην τρίφεραν τοῦ Μιχαὴλ πάλαι γόνῳ τρισευκλεῦ μεγίστῃ ἐκ βασιλέων ἐρρεύσεν εἰς τὴν ἀλλὰ παπαῖ τῆς τύχης).

Niva Unьzereva kon Bělu Crьkvu; i druga Eksefilinova konь crьkve jože tь priloži; i Topila jože dade Kalojanь Pečkopulь za dušu).
Eltimeres Person between 01.01.1305 and 31.12.1305 He was probably killed in 1305. He held the title of Despot. The question, who bestowed him with the title of despot, remains unresolved. He ruled almost independently in the region of Krounos (Krŭn) in Rhodope (κατὰ τὸν Κρουνὸν ἐξάρχοντα). He received this territory probably as dowry. He was the brother of the Bulgarian Tsar George Terter I. He was the son-in-law of the Bulgarian Tsar Smilets and his wife Smiltsena Palaiologina (γαμβρόν γε ὄντα Σμιλτζαίνης), since he married their daughter Maria (Marina). His nephew was Theodor Svetoslav. He was the father or the father-in-law of Ioannes Dragusinos (ΕΚΟΙΜΙΘΕΙ Ο ΔΟΥΛΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΘΕΟΥ ΙΩΑΝΝΗΣ Ο ΔΡΑΓΟΥΣΙΝΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΟΙΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΔΕΣΠΟΤΟΥ ΤΟΥ ΑΛΔΙΜΙΡΟΥ). He was apparently of Cuman origin. He acted as a loyal supporter of Smiltsena after the death of her husband. He offered her a place of refuge in the region of Krounos (Krŭn). The Bulgarian Tsar Theodor Svetoslav gained his trust after he donated the fortresses Diampolis (Jambol) and Lardaia to him. Eltimeres defeated and blinded sebastokrator Radoslav, the brother of the Bulgarian Tsar Smilets, who aspired to the Bulgarian throne with the aid of the Byzantines. He handed over Radoslav and the captured byzantine noblemen to the Bulgarian Tsar Theodor Svetoslav. He marched in 1304 with Theodor Svetoslav against the Byzantines, although his mother-in-law and a byzantine embassy tried to dissuade him with gifts and pronoia promises from joining the alliance with the Bulgarian Tsar. Another intercesssion of his mother-in-law ended with success. He switched the sides and fought with the Byzantines against the Bulgarian Tsar. The hostilities led to the reconcquest of the fortresses Diampolis and Lardaia and the capture of the territory of Krounos by the Bulgarian Tsar Theodor Svetoslav.
Eudokia (1) Person She together with her son and Mpoeikos sponsored in 1344/1345 the painted decoration of the Virgin Maryʼs Church in Mali Grad (Δέησης του δουλου του Θεοῦ Μπώεῖκου καὶ Εὐδῶκείας, τῆς εὐγενὲστάτης καὶ τὸν τέκνὸν αὐτης. Ανὴστωρϊθὲν τὸ βίμα παρ αὐτῶν. Έτους ͵ς ω ν γʹ).

(Ἀνηγέρθει ὁ θεῖος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς οὗτος τῆς πανυπεράγνου δέσποινης ἡμῶν Θεοτόκου τῆς περιβλέπτου διά τε συνδρομῆς καὶ ἐξόδου κυροῦ Προγόνου τοῦ Σγουροῦ τοῦ μεγάλου ἑταιρειάρχου καὶ τῆς συζύγου αὐτοῦ κυρὰς Εὐδοκίας καὶ γαμβροῦ τοῦ κραταιοῦ καὶ ἁγίου ἡμῶν αὐτοκράτορος καὶ βασιλέως· ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλείας τοῦ εὐσεβεστάτου βασιλέος καὶ αὐτοκράτωρος Ῥωμαίων Ἀνδρονίκου τοῦ Παλαιολόγου· καὶ Εἰρήνης τῆς εὐσεβεστάτης αὐγούστης· ἀρχιερατεύοντος δὲ Μακαρίου τοῦ παναγιωτάτου ἀρχιεπισκόπου τῆς Πρότης Ἰουστινιανῆς καὶ πάσης Βουλγαρίας· ἐπὶ ἔτους· ϛ ω γ ἰνδικτιῶνος η). An epigram embroidered on an altar cloth in the thirteenth or fourteenth century and now kept in the National Historical Museum at Sofia indicates that it is also a gift of her husband Progonos Sguros. Eudokia is described on the altar cloth as a relative of the renowned family of the Komnenoi (Δῶρόν σοι κλεινὸς μέγας ἑταιρειάρχης/ τύπον σῆς σταυρώσεως ἀνατυπῶ σοι/ ἐκ τῆς δοκούσης τάχα τιμίας ὕλης/ σὺν Εὐδοκίᾳ τῇ ὁμοζύγῳ, Λόγε,/ οὔσῃ Κομνηνῇ μητροπαπποπατρόθεν/ ἵνα λύσιν λάβωμεν ἀμπλακημάτων).
Euphemia Person between 01.01.1404 and 31.12.1405 Died after 1404/1405. She appears as καισαρίσις Σερβίας, βασιλείσης Σερβίας and despotica kyra Eupraxia in the sources. She became a nun after the death of her husband Ioannes Unklesis (26. 9. 1371). She wrote poems. Her father was kaisar Boichnas (Vojihna). She was married to Ioannes Unklesis. Her son was Uglješa. Euphemia composed a lament over the premature death of her son. Between 1368 and 1371 was the lament over Uglješa (Despotović) inscribed under the patronage of Euphemia on the silver revetment, which connected the two icons of Uglješa (Despotović) and made a diptych. Euphemia donated the diptych icon to the Hilandar Monastery for the salvation of the soul of her son. It is suggested that she commisioned in 1371 the double sided icon with the Virgin Kataphyge and the Vision of Ezechiel, the so-called Poganovo icon. After the death of her husband she lived at the court of the Serbian Prince Lazaros (Lazar). When Milica became widow after the Kosovo battle in 1389 both took monastic wows. Euphemia and Milica were initially at Županja Monastery near Kruševac. They lived later at Ljubostinja Monastery. Euphemia accompanied the princess Milica on her diplomatic mission to Bayezid I., who was at Serres. Her epitaphios is preserved in the collection of the Putna Monastery (Μνήσθητοι, κ(ύρι)ε, τὰς ψυχὰς τῶν δούλων σου καισαρίσις Σερβίας ’Εφημίας μοναχῆς σὺν θυγατρὶ βασιλείσης Σερβίας Εὐπραξίας μοναχῆς). She wrote a prayer for Lord Jesus Christ influenced by the work of Saint Symeon the New Theologian. She mentioned also her father kaisar Boichnas (Voihna), who was buried at Hilandar, in the prayer. Her prayer was embroidered on a curtain (katapetasma) made of silk and gold for the altar door. It was decorated with the figure of Christ as a priest flanked by Saint John Chrysostom, Saint Basil and two archangels. Euphemia donated the curtain in 1398/1399 to the Hilandar Monastery. In 1402 Euphemia composed a laud for the Prince Lazaros (Lazar). Her text was embroidered on the shroud for the head of Prince Lazaros (Lazar). The Relic is preserved in the Museum of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Belgrade. The Serbian Despot Stefan Lazarević granted the village Jabučje to Euphemia (Eupraxia).

He defected therefore from Ioannes Kantakuzenos to the party of Alexios Apokaukos and the Byzantine Empress Anna Palaiologina. He wanted to conclude peace with Kantakuzenos for a while, but Alexios Apokaukos discouraged him. Alexios Apokaukos promised him his daughter, but the marriage never took place.

Georgios (3) Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Orestes from August 1323. He and his brother Theodoros were inherited serfs of Ioannes Sguros Orestes in Melnik (ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρ̣ου Μελενίκου ὀσπήτια ἀπὸ γονικότητος καὶ ανθρώπους γονικοὺς αὐτοῦ τινάς, ἤγουν … τοὺς υἱοὺς τῆς Βίσεως τὸν Γεώργιον καὶ τὸν Θεόδωρον).

According to the proposed reconstruction it probably mentions Georgios (ΓΕΩΡΓΙΟΣ ΚΕ Η ΣΙΝΕΥΝΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΑΥΤΟΥ ΤΗΧΟΣΛΑΒΑΣ ΚΤΗΤΟΡΙΣΑΣ).
Georgios (5) Person Probably identical with the mesazon Georgios (PLP 4030), who is mentioned by the Byzantine historian Georgios Pachymeres. The mesazon participated in the peace negotiations between Byzantium and Serbia between 1267 and 1269 (καὶ ἤδη καὶ πρὸς Λιπαίνιον ἰόντων, πέμπεται μὲν πρέσβις ἐκεῖθεν ὁ καὶ μεσάζων ἐκείνων, Γεώργιος τοὔνομα, ᾧ δὴ καὶ λόχος ἀνδρῶν ἐνεδρεύσας προσεζημίου). He partook in the arrangment of the marriage project between the Byzantine princess Anna and the Serbian prince Stefan Uroš Milutin, which collapsed. Georgios (PLP 4030) was involved in several Serbian diplomatic envoys to Charles I Anjou, the King of Sicily. Mentioned in the sermon of the Byzantine writer Theodoros Metochites, who undertook the task to arrange the marriage of the Byzantine princess Simonis with the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. Theodoros Metochites expressed his position and dignity on the court of the Serbian King with the words „καθάπαξ τῷ δεσπότῃ καὶ τῶν σφόδρα, πιστῶς τε καὶ οἰκείως ἐχόντων“. He was the second commander of the Serbian army in the ranking (καὶ μάλιστα ἐν τοῖς ἡμετέροις, τιμῆς τε διὰ ταῦτ’ ἄρα πάντα ἀξιοῦται τὲ καὶ ἐπικέκληται, ἧστινος δὴ ταύτης, ἡγεμὼν ἐν τοῖς τοῦ γένους στρατεύμασι δεύτερος). He was the member of the Serbian advisory council (καὶ κοινωνούντων βουλῆς τε καὶ λόγων καὶ φροντισμάτων· καὶ πάσης σκέψεως· ἅτ’ εὔνους τὲ ὢν αὐτῷ, δὴ, καὶ σφόδρα· καὶ νοῦν ἔχων ἐφ’ ἑκάστοις αὐτῷ κοινωνεῖν· καὶ μεταχειρίζειν τὲ καὶ συμβάλλειν τῶν τε ἔργων καὶ τῶν λόγων). He was the father of the Monk (starec) Isaias according to the opinion of Miodrag A. Purković. Starec Isaias came to the court of the Serbian king in his younger years at his father’s wish. Purković argues for the identity of the commander Georgios and the father of starec Isaias exactly on the account of the closeness to the Serbian king (Rodi že se pri blagočastivěmь i hristoljubivemь samodrьžci vsee srьpskie zemle i podunavskie i pomorskie i arbanaškïe svetomь krali Uroši. Ōtь blagorodnu i blagōčastivu roditelju, ōtьca Geōrgïa matere že Kalïni...běše bo mnogoljubimь roditeli svoimi. i hotěhu jego prědati vь polatu carevi. onь že poslušavь stvori imь volju vь malo vreme). The Father of starec Isaias was married to Kalina. He became a monk with the name Gerasimos. His wife Kalina became a nun with the name Theōdosïa (i sihь prěimenovavь, ōtьca Gerasimь, matere že Theōdosïa). He fought against the byzantine emperor in a battle before 1298. He was captured and imprisoned by the Byzantines. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II and the Constantinopolitan elite knew him according to the report of Theodoros Metochites. He was of the initiators and a main proponent of the peace negotiations between the Serbians and Byzantines and the preparation of the marriage. (ἦν δ’ ἐν τούτοις μάλισθ’ ὁ λέγειν ἔχων καὶ πρῶτα φέρων, Γεώργιος· Γεώργιος οἶσθ’ ὃς πρότερον, ἐνειρκτο δέσμιος ἐκ μάχης τῷ βασιλεῖ· συνήθης τὲ ἐκεῖθεν μάλιστ’ ἐκ τῆς χρονίου καθείρξεως αὐτῷ τε βασιλεῖ γεγονὼς, καὶ ἡμῖν· καὶ τὰς παρούσας καταλλαγὰς καὶ συμβάσεις, ἐπὶ τῷ κήδει πρῶτος αὐτόθι προδείξας καὶ ἐνηργμένος· καὶ καθυπουργήσας εἰς τὰ μάλιστα· ὡς ἐντεῦθεν ἄρα, καὶ μάλισθ’ ὡς πεῖραν ἤδη τιν’ ἡμῶν καὶ τῶν ἡμετέρων ἐσχηκὼς κρείττω, ἢ κατὰ τοὺς ἄλλους τῆς ἐκ τοῦ ἔθνους, καὶ τῆς ἁπάσης ἡμῖν προξενεῖν ἀμέλει πρεσβείας ἀξιοῦσθαι. ἕστι δὲ κἀν τοῖς μάλισθ’ ὁ ἀνήρ, καθάπαξ τῷ δεσπότῃ καὶ τῶν σφόδρα, πιστῶς τε καὶ οἰκείως ἐχόντων).
Georgios (6) Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Serbian Despot Ioan Uglješa (Ioannes Unklesis) for the Monastery Simonos Petras on the Holy Mount Athos from 1368. The charter is preserved only in a copy produced in 1622/1623 during the Patriarchate of Kyrillos Lukaris. He appears as κῦρ in the charter. He was a military commander. He had two brothers (Nikolaos and Demetrios). E. Trapp supposes that he was the grandchild of the Serbian commander Georgios, but he does not give any evidence to support his thesis. He sold together with his brothers their possession between the villages Bernarus and Esphagmenu near Serres to the Serbian Despot Ioan Uglješa (Ioannes Unklesis) for 879 nomismata. The Serbian Despot Ioan Uglješa (Ioannes Unklesis) donated their former possession to the Monastery Simonos Petras on the Holy Mount Athos (Ἐν δέ τοῖς μέρεσι τοῦ στρώμονος, ὑπάρχει μετόχιον ἀναμέσον τῶν δύω συνόρων τοῦτε Σεῤῥῶν καί τῶν Ζυχνῶν, φημί, ἐν ᾧ ὑπάρχει κλῆτος, αὐτό καθ’ αὐτό κεχωρισμένον ἐκ τῶν ἀνέκαθεν καιρῶν ὁ δ’ αὐτός χῶρος ξύμπας, ἐτύγχανε κτῆμα κῦρ Γεωργίου τοῦ στρατηγοῦ μετά τῶν αὐτοῦ αὐταδέλφων Νικολάου, καὶ Δημητρίου, ὑπάρχει δέ μεταξύ τῶν δύω κομῶν τοῦ τε βαρνάρου καὶ ἐσφαγμένου, ἐξωνησάμην δέ καί τό αὐτό κλῆτος, παρά τῶν πρό μικροῦ ἄνωθεν εἰρημένων αὐταδέλφων ἅπαν διά νομισμάτων ὀκτακοσίων ἑβδομήκοντα ἐννέα).

(siju knigu dade Gjurgь logothetь gospožde carice presvetěi bogorodici Gory Sinaiskyje, bog da go prostit). According to the hypothesis of Konstantin Jireček he was the brother of Radoslav’, the Governor of Serres, and čelnik Miloš from the Povika family. In 1361 the Ragusan republic sequestrated the deposited money of Georgios for the purpose of war (Prima pars est, de accipiendo de manibus Milçe de Lebro denarios Jurech Logofeti, et ponere ipsos in manibus comunis pro serviçiis guerre). On 27th February 1367 Georgios sent his will from his residence in Thessalonike to the Ragusan republic. His decision was to sell his property and belongings in Ragusa administrated by Milac Lebrović and Lovro Razumenović. He donated according to the testament the earned sum and also other gifts, including notary’s books, to his relative Živko Dlьžić (prědal dobitьkь i rěznicu moju vašimь Dubrovčanomь, na ime Milcu Dumonikju i Lavretevi Razumenikju, a bě i vsi znate a ōdь vasь ne se utajalo. Da znate vlastele, moja bratija, ere sьmь bilь dlьžьnь ō-davno za mnogo godištь za potrebe, koe ni je iznosilь Živko, sinь Radoslava Dlьžica, vašь Dubrovčaninь, za mnogo mu sьmь drьžnь bilь do denesь, ere ni jestь rodinь krьvьno, a i da znate, vlastele, ere mu prodahь i darovahь vesь moi dobětьkь i riznicu, što mi je u Dubrovnici, no je na Milci Dumoniki i na Lavrete Razumenoviku, i kuke i vinograde, inonikatske knige da e volьnь Živko uprašati i prodati i knigami inonikatskimi i kaželeriskimi, kleti se i dušiti se na moju dušu, kakono ja samь Gjuregь logofetь, i da slobodi, kogo mu se vidi, kano ja samь Gjuregь logofetь. a sezi mu prodahь i darovahь u Sulune na ·kz· dьnь febrara měseca). His brother Radoslav’, the Governor of Serres, wrote to the Ragusan republic and confirmed that the belongings of the deceased logotet Georgios (Gjurgь) were rightly bequeathed to his second brother Miloš. He issued the respective document „in domo suo in civitate Serrarum“ on the 15th May 1368.

Geōrgi Person There are several opinions regarding his tenure of office as a bishop. Radoslav M. Grujić states that he became Bishop of Prizren after the conquest of Polog in 1282. Đorđe Bubalo argues that he was ordained as the Bishop of Prizren after 1333 and before 1342. Janković suggests that he held his office until 1346. He and Markuš requested the gathered local noblemen and people at the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo on 4th november of an unspecified year to swear to tell the truth concerning the disputed land located on the hill called Pleš (I zakle ih jepiskopь prizrěnьski Geōrgii Markušь vse starce i vlastele, i idoše na Plěšь na brьdo, da iznaidutь po svědočʼbě čija je Plěšь, ili jestь crьkevna ili Progonova). After the testimonies of witnesses confirmed the churchʼs possession of the hill Pleš, Geōrgi gave a speech to the present noblemen, where he declared himself as a real master of the local church estate (. I tako reče jepiskopь: boljare i horo, azь kьda prědrьžu crьkvu po izvoleniju božiju i gospodina mi arhiepiskopa da i tō i drugo ōtьkupiti hkju, gde nahogju crьkovno město, poneže jesmь sušti gospodarь i ōtьkupihь).

The Despot Ioannes Liberos granted this stlьpь in or before 1346/1347 to the Eparchy of Zletovo with its seat in the Monastery Lěsnovo (1). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation of Ioannes Liberos in the founding charter for the Bishopric of Zletovo (I priloži despotь zemlje stlьpь vyše svetago Ilije dola, i drugy stlьpь povyše koi je Gjurenь drьžalь uzь vložinu).

Gonь Person Mentioned in the the so-called „zbirna hrisovulja” of the Serbian Kings Stefan Uroš II Milutin and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan, which has been preserved in four transcripts in the library of the Monastery Hilandar. They are dated between 1303/1304 and 1336/1340-1342/1345. He had sons. One was Dobroslavь. The name of the other son is not mentioned in the source. Hrelja Dragovol erected the Church of Saint Archangel Michael in the town of Štip. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the act of Hrelja’s donation of the Church of Saint Archangel Michael to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian King bought courtyards, watermills, vineyards and added these possessions to the endowment of Hrelja. Stefan Uroš IV Dušan also gave 50 people from the suburb of Štip to the Church of Saint Archangel Michael (I prida kraljevьstvo mi crьkvi arhïstratigu ōt pod’gradija štip’skago .n. ljudi).

Gradislavь (1) Person Mentioned in the sources from 1333 to 1379/1380. He was the son of Boril (Gradislauo Borilli). Vojvoda Gradislav (or vexillifer Gradislau, son of Boril in the Latin version of the document) signed along with the Metropolitan of Prizren Arsenije, Kaznac Baldovin, Župan Vratko, Knez Grgur Kurjaković, Stavilac Miloš, Vojvoda Dejan Manjak, Gradislav Sušenica, Nikola Buća, and Archdeacon Marin Baranić in Polog the charter issed by Stefan Uroš IV Dušan from the 22. January 1333 regarding the sale of Ston to the city of Dubrovnik (A tu imь milostь učini kraljevstvo mi u Polozie vь lětoь 6833 měseca ženvara 2 i 2 danь. A tui běhu: sveōsvešni jepiskupь prizrěnski Arsenie, kaznacь Balьdovinь, voevoda Gradisavь, županь Vratkō, knezь Grьgurь Kurjakovićь, stavilacь Miloš, vo(e)voda Deganь Manijaakь, Gradisavь Sušenica, Nikola Bučga, arhidjak Marinь Baraninь/ Actum est hoc datum in Pollogo, presentibus uenerabili patris, domino Arsenio, episcopo Prisirenensis, ac nobilibus viris, casneçio Baldouino, Gradislauo Borilli, uexillifero, çuppano Vratcho, comitate Gregorio Curiaçi, staluileçio Milosio Voyni, uoieuoda Deiano Maniiacho, stauileçio Gradislauo Suseniçe, Nicolao Buchia, archidiacono Antibarensis et Marino Miroslai Antibarensis, et aliis quam pluribus currente anno Domini, millesimo, trecentessimo tercio decimo tercio, mensis Januari uigessimo secundio die, indictione prima). Gradislav bearing the title of tepčija donated the settlement site Běla Vodica with all rights to the Monastery of Treskavec. This donation was confirmed by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in the second charter for the Monastery in Treskavec (Selište Běla Vodica sь vsěmi pravinami, što priloži tepci Gradislavь). Gradislav figures again in the charter of Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of the Holy Archangels in Prizren issued probably in August 1347. As tepčija he confirmed the boundary mark of the land Trstena during the reign of the Stefan Uroš III Dečanski (i sь zemlomь na Trьstěnoi što si jestь drьžalь u roditelь carьstva mi, i što mu je utesalь tepʼči Gradislav i igumьnь carьstva mi). In 1352 the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan sent to the Byzantine Emperor John V Palaiologos an auxiliary cavalry force under the command of Borilović, who was in charge of the office of kaznac. They fought together against John VI Kantakuzenos and the horsemen of Orhan I in the battle of Didymoteichon. According to Kantakuzenos almost all 7,000 Serbs fell at the battle and the kaznac could escape only with a small number of troops (γενομένου δὲ ἐκεῖ τοῦ βασιλέως ἀδελφοῦ, ἡ στρατιὰ ἐξεπέμφθη παρασκευασθεῖσα ἑπτακισχίλιοι ἱππεῖς, ὧν ἐστρατήγει Κασνιτζὸς ὁ Μποριλοβίκης προσαγορευόμενος, ἐκ τῶν ἐπιφανεστάτων μάλιστα ὢν τῶν παρὰ Τριβαλοῖς… Κασνιτζὸς δὲ ὁ στρατηγὸς μετά τινων εὐαριθμήτων ἠδυνήθη διαδρᾶναι, τῶν ἄλλων ἁπάντων τῶν μὲν πεσόντων, τῶν δ’ ἑαλωκότων). It is not clear, if Borilović is the same person as Gradislav. Naumov suggests, that Borilović was in fact his brother or close relative. He owned the village Jelašnica. The Serbian Despot Lazar donated in 1379/1380 the village Jelašnica, which belonged previously to Gradislav, with church, boundaries, hamlets and all right to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian Patriarch Spiridon confirmed in 1380 the wording of the deed of Lazar (selo Elʼšanica Gradisava tepčije i sь crьkviju i s megami i zaselci, s pravinami sela togo). Gradislav was probably buried in the Treskavec monastery. This was proposed by Gligorijević on the grounds of an inscription under the ktetor composition of a man carrying a church model and his wife preserved on the western facade of the parekklesion of the Treskavec monastery (τοῦ τεπέτζηα καὶ κτήτορος τοῦδε τοῦ ναοῦ). On the sheet 436 of the pomenik of the Church of the Holy Virgin Ljeviška in Prizren, the pomen of Peter kaznac Gradislav is mentioned. It might be suggested that Peter was the monk name of Gradislav. Highly questionable is the suggestion of Branka Ivanić, which identifies Gradislav with the bearer of the goldring in the collection of the National Museum in Belgrade. The inscription along the rim of the goldring reads namely Gradislav čelnik.
Gradislavь (2) Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for Iakobos (Iakovь), the Metropolitan of Serres, concerning the Church of Saint Nicholas on the river Pčinja beneath the fortress of Kožle from 1352/1353. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan together with his son and his wife donated the Church of Saint Nicholas on the river Pčinja under the fortress Kožle, which was founded by his grandfather Stefan Uroš II Milutin, for life to the metropolitan of Serres. They granted him all rights of the church together with the land, the people, the vineyards, watermills, bought estates, estates given for the sake of soul and hunting grounds. After the death of Jakob, the metropolitan of Serres, the rights should devolve on the Monastery of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel near Prizren. Among the donated people were freemen from the Byzantine Empire, who came at the time when the Turks plundered Anatolia and were well received on the churchʼs land by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. Their arrival might have a connection with the presence of the Serbian troops under the command of Novakь Grěbostrěkь in Anatolia. One of the migrants was Gradislavь (I kьdi plěniše Turʼci Anatoliju, tьdii prïidoše slobodni ljudije izь Grьkьь na crьkovnu zemlju pri svetomь krali; a se imь imena: Gradislavь).

He commisioned the painted decoration of the church, which was accomplished by John, a deacon and refendarios, in 1270/1271 (Ὁ ναὸς γὰρ ἦν σμικρώτατος, σαθρὸς, ῥακοθεὶς δὲ καὶ διατετρωμένος ἀρραγῆς καὶ μὶ φέρων ὁρᾶν τὴν τοῦ ναοῦ σβέσιν ὁ πανοσιώτατος καθηγούμενος τῆς μονῆς ὁ κυρὸς Ἰωαννίκιος, ὁ καὶ διὰ τοῦ ἁγίου σχίματος ἐπωνομασθεὶς Ἀκάκιος καὶ χωρέσας ὑπὲρ χρημάτων ἀναχωρεῖ τοῦτον θεῖαν εὐσεβῆς ἐπιχωρῖν καὶ ἐν ὑπηρεσία ἄγειν ὁ καὶ προκαλέσας τοὺς ἐν Χριστῶ ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ...ἅμα καὶ εὐθὺς χαλάσας τὴν ἐκκλησίαν ἀνήγυρεν ἐκ βάθρων τὸν πάνσεπτον ναὸν τοῦτον καὶ οραΐσας καὶ καλεῖ ἐν αὐτοῖς τὸν ἐν χρωματουργίμασιν πικυλοτρόποις καὶ ἐν βαθεῖ γνόμονας χεῖρας ταπινότατος Ἰωάννης διάκονος καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν κρίσεων τῆς ἁγιωτάτης ἀρχιεπισκοπῆς, καὶ...ἐν ἔτει ἐξακισχιλιστὸ καὶ ἑπτακοσιοστό τε ο δ, ἰνδικτιῶνος θ, ἀνιστορίθι δὲ ἐν ἕτι ς ψ ο θ, ἰνδικτιῶνος ιδ, ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλείας τοῦ εὐσεβεστάτου μεγάλου βασλέως καὶ αὐτοκράτωρος Ῥωμαίων Δοῦκα Ἀγγέλου Κομνηνοῦ Μιχαήλ τοῦ Παλαιολόγου καὶ Νέου Κωνσταντίνου). He is portrayed with the model of the church on the western wall of the northern aisle of the Church of Saint Nicholas in Manastir. The ktitorial painted composition is accompanied by the inscription, which stresses the role of Ioannikios/Akakios as the second ktetor of the church (δέησις τοῦ δούλου τοῦ θεοῦ Ἀκακίου ἱερομονάχου καὶ καθηγουμένου ...ορεντος. καὶ δευτέρου κτήτωρος).

He erected the Church of the Holy Trinity in Melnik. He supervised the fresco decoration of the interior of the church (ἀνηγέρθη ἐκ βάθρου καὶ ἀνιστορίθη ὁ θεῖος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς τοῦτος τῆς ὁμοουσίου καὶ ζωοποιοῦ Τριάδος διὰ συνδρομῆς καὶ ἐξόδου Ἰωαννικίου ἱερομονάχου ἐπὶ τῆ ποληχρονίω χαρᾶ τοῦ κραταιοῦ καὶ ἁγίου ἡμῶν αὐθέντου μεγάλου βασιλέως Ἀνδρονίκου τοῦ Παλεολόγου καὶ Εἰρήνης τῆς εὐσεβεστάτης αὐγούστης τοῦ ἔτους ςψϛε).
Ionas Person He was the Abbot of the Monastery at the Prespa lake at that time, when Kaisar Nobakos sponsored the renovation and decoration of the Virgin Maryʼs Church in Mali Grad (Άνηγέρθη ἐκ βάθρου καὶ κόπού καὶ μόχθοῦ ὁ θεϊος κὲ πάνσεπτος ναώς ουτος της υπεραγίας δεσπίνης ἡμων Θεοτόκου καὶ ἀνηστορίθην παρὰ του αὐφθέντου αὐτοῦ πὰνευτυχεστάτου κέσαρος Νοβάκου ἠγουμενέβῶντὸς δὲ Ἰωνὰ μοναχοῦ. Αὐφθεντεύβοντος πανυψηλοτάτου κραλήου τοῦ Βεληκασίνου. Άρχαηερατεύωντος δὲ τῆς ἀγιωτάτης ἀρχιεπησκοπῆς τῆς Πρότης Ἰουστινηανης, ετους ͵ςωοζ).
Ionas Person Mentioned in the deed of donation of Michael Elaiodorites Spanopulos for the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Spelaiotissa near Melnik from the late 13th century or the beginning of the 14th century. He was a monk and dikaios of the metropolitan of Melnik. He authenticated the deed of donation of Michael Elaiodorites Spanopulos for the Monastery of the Holy Mother of God Spelaiotissa near Melnik.
Isaakios Nikephoros Person A short notice of the capture of Berat in 1342/1343 by the sebastokrator of Serbia Isaakios Nikephoros is inserted in the colophon of the manuscript (Dionys. 216/3750) written by the scribe Iakobos, kept in the library of the monastery of Dionysiu (ἐπόνησα πρὸς ταῦτα τῷ ἑξακισχιλιοστῷ αὖθις ὀκτακοσιοστῷ πρὸς τοῖς πεντήκοντα καὶ ἑνὶ ἔτη ἰνδικτηώνος δὲ ἐνδεκάτης. Ἰστέον ὅτι τὸ παρὸν βιβλίον ἐγράφη ἐν τῷ πρώτῳ ἔτω τῆς εἰς τὰ Βελλάγραδα εἰσελεύσεως τοῦ σεβαστοκράτωρος Σερβείας κῦρ Νικηφόρω τὸ Ἰσαακίω, χειρὶ δὲ Ἰακώβῳ ἱεροθύτῳ). Isaakios Nikephoros is with all probability identical with the ambassador Chiersacchio mentioned in a document from 25.05.1344 preserved in the archives of the city Dubrovnik (In consilio rogatorum captum fuit "de mittendo unum ambassiatorem Chiersacchio ad honorandum ipsum et presentandum et recommandandum mereatores in partibus illis conversantes". Item "de mittendo dona eidem Chiersacchio, cuidam alii baroni Suberto de yperferis CC"; et alia fuit de perperis CL que vicit".) The sebastokrator Kerьsakь also appears as a donator of the village of Rodokali with hamlets and all rights to the Church of Holy Mother of God Peribleptos in Ōhrid, which was confirmed by the Serbian king Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. (I kako prihodi vseōsvešteni jepiskopь Děvolьski kirь Gligori i uspomenu mi kako jestь priložilь prěljubovni vlastelinь kraljevstva mi sevastokratorь Kerьsakь selo Rodokali, i sь zaselьci i sь vsěmi pravinami sela toga crьkvi Periblepьtu, monastiru kralevstva mi i kraličinu. I kralevstvo mi zapisa i utvrьdi, jako da jestь tvrьdo i nerazorimo do věka i da jestь otь crьkve neotiemlemo do dni i do věka). The Serbian King names him in the same charter as the brother of his kingdom and as the Sebastokrator of the town Ōhrid. The Serbian king mentions his help in the conquest of the region (i sь Hristovomь pomoštiju i prědanijemь brata kraljevstva mi, sebastokratora grada Ōhrid). He is attested together with the archbishop Nikolaos as donor of the large mid-14th century icons of Christ Pantokrator and the Virgin Psychosostria destined for the templon of the Cathedral of St. Sophia at Ōhrid. An inscription is attached to the lower rim of the revetment of the Icon with Christ Pantokrator, which describes him as the sebastokrator Isaakios Dukas (ΥΜΝΟΝ ΕΠΙΝΙΚΟΝ ΩΣ ΘΕΩ ΦΕΡΕΙ ΑΥΤΟΣ Δ· ΕΝΥΛΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΧΟΙΚΟΣ ΤΥΓΧΑΝΩΝ ΔΟΥΚΑΣ ΙΣΑΑΚΙΟΣ ΣΕΒΑΣΤΟΚΡΑΤΩΡ ΙΛΑΣΤΗ ΕΙΚΟΝΑ ΗΡΥΣΟΥ ΑΡΓΥΡΟΥ ΤΕ ΤΕΧΝΟΥΡΓΗΜΕΝΗΝ ΗΝ ΚΑΙ ΔΕΧΟΙΟ ΠΑΜΜΕΔΟΝ ΘΕΟΥ [ΚΡΑΤΟΣ...ΕΙΣ] ΕΞΙΛΑΣΜΑ ΤΩΝ ΑΜΑΡΤΗΜΑΤΟΝ). It is not clear whether the sebastocrator Isaakios is the same person as the Caesar Dukas portrayed together with his prematurely deceased son Demetrios in the ruins of St. Panteleimon in Ōhrid, which is dated 1321 or 1331, shortly before the conquest of Ōhrid by the Serbian king Stefan Uroš IV Dušan.
Isaha Person Probably died before summer 1343. He was a monk. His wife was Isašina. He donated his court in Sedlarevo with meadows, oak forest, mill, pasture and all boundaries and rights to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo. This endowment was confirmed by the Kefalija of Polog Vladoje (I što priloži Isaha u Sedlarevě město, dvorь i s livadami i sь dubravomь. Povelěnijemь i milostiju gospodina kralja izdade Vladoje kefalija pološki sь vsěmi megjami i pravinami, i sь mlinom i s pašištemь, i vse što jestь imalь Isaha). According to the Bogorodica Htětovska charter he and his wife granted one fourth of the village Sedlarevo with all boundaries, rights, mills, meadows and an enclosure to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo for tonsure (Selo Sedlarevo, što daa Isaha za postrigь i za svojega podružija postrigь, četvrьtu čestь vsego sela sь vsěmi megami i sь mliny i sь livadami, sь ōgradijemь i sь vsěmi pravinami.

This was attested by Strězo, Vladь, Lěto, Kosta, a certain priest, the son-in-law of Ljuj, and Janicь from Velgošt (Niva u Careva Studenca, Kraimirovo selište, što kupi igumьnь Isaije u Kjure, Kraimirove čtjere, i u sestre jei Jere, i u nih dětei, u Vitomira i u Leia i u Milja i u Romana, za 20 kьbьlь žita u gladno vrěme, i priuzesmo měhь sirenija i polutьkь slanine.

Palaiologos gave in December 1350 several landed estates to Demetrios Kokalas in addition to his oikonomia. He mandated Georgios Isaris with Manuel Chageres to execute the task. He had a 11 years lasting quarrel with the Hilandar Monastery. He required the sum, which Georgios Stanisas, his son-in-law, paid in order to obtain adelphata.

Karabides Georgios Person According to the Vita of Saint Nicodemus written by the Patriarch of Constantinople Philotheos Kokkinos he was a Serb. But his name does not sound like a Serbian anthroponym in any way. Either Karabides himself derived the Greek variant from the word καραβίς, which means ship, and adopted it as his name, or Kokkinos simply translated his original Serbian epithet, which actually expressed his professional activity, into Greek in order to make it more accessible to the public. Mentioned in the charter from 28 June 1336, which has been preserved in the archives of the town Dubrovnik and in the Life of Saint Nicodemus written by the Patriarch of Constantinople Philotheos Kokkinos. His son-in-law was Ioannes Liberos (Oliuer Gherchinich, baro domini Regis Raxie et gener Charauide). He came to Thessalonike from Dalmatia according to the Vita of Saint Nicodemus. Philotheos Kokkinos designates him as a deserter. He was afflicted by a terrible paralysis. He spent almos all of his fortune on doctors. Finally he was healed at the shrine of the Saint Nicodemus sometimes after 1307 (Γεώργιός τις τὸ γένος Τριβαλλός, τὴν ἐπωνυμίαν Καραβίδης, ἐκ Δαλματίας ὁρμώμενος, ἧκέ ποτε Ῥωμαίοις αὐτόμολος· οὗτος εἶχε τὰς διατριβὰς κατὰ Θεσσαλονίκην. Καί ποτε τούτῳ πάρεσις δεινὴ μάλα ἐπισκήπτει, ἣν ἄρα καὶ φύσις καὶ τέχνη ἰατρικὴ ἀπειρήκει, τὸ χαλεπὸν ταύτης, ὥσπερ οἶμαι, μυσαττομένη. Πολλὰ τοιγαροῦν καμὼν καὶ ἰατροῖς δήπου τὸν ἅπαντα βίον σχεδὸν ἀναλωκὼς οὐδὲν ἐκεῖθεν ἀπώνατο ἢ τὸ καταγνῶναι πάντως ἐκείνων. Ὀψὲ δὲ καὶ μόλις ἑαυτὸν ἀνενέγκας, ἔγνω δεῖν καὶ πρὸς τὸ τοῦ ἁγίου τοῦδε τέμενος καταφυγεῖν. Καὶ δὴ θᾶττον ἐκεῖσε γεγονὼς πολλὰ τὸν ἅγιον ἱκετεύει, ναὶ μὴν καὶ δάκρυσι, τὸ ἀνυσιμώτατον εἰς πειθὼ φάρμακον, κατὰ τῆς ἱερᾶς τοῦ ἁγίου ἐκχέει σοροῦ, καὶ τηνικαῦτα τοῦ πάθους μὲν εὐθὺς ἀπαλλάσσεται, τῷ ἰδίῳ δὲ οἴκῳ ὑγιὴς χαίρων ἐπάνεισιν). Georgios Karabides gave in pawn a silver belt, silver drawer and 195 ducats in gold to Junije Lukarević. Ioannes Liberos, the son-in-law of Georgios Karabides, stated on 28th June 1336 in the presence of Nikola Falletro, the comes of the town of Ragusa, that he received the former treasury of Karabides from Junije Lukarević. Liberos swore that he will give the treasury to the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan and request a charter for Junije Lukarević from the king, which will confirm the receipt of treasury and ruled out the possibility of demand by the king, Liberos or the children of Karabides (Oliuer Gherchinich, baro domini Regis Raxie et gener Charauide, constitutes ante presentiam nobilis et potentis viri domini Nicolai Falletro, honorabilis comitis Ragusii, contentus e confessus fuit habuisse et recepisse et apud se habere a Junio de Lucarom de Ragusio unam centuram de argento et unam ladicam de argento, ponderis inter ambas librarum tredecim et unciarum V, et centum nonaginta quinque ducatos de auro, que centura et ladica et ducati acomandati fuerunt per dictum Carauidam, socerum olim dicti Oliueri, eidem Junio, ut idem Junius confessus fuit. Et similiter idem Oliverius confessus fuit tantas fuisse res et ducatos, accomandatas eidem Junio per dictum Charauidam et non plures, cum infrascriptis pactis et condictionibus, uidelicet quod ipse Oliuerius teneatur et debeat predictam centuram et ladicam et ducatos dare in manibus domini Regis Raxie in presentia Petri de Ribica et Marini filii Junii de Uolcasso de Ragusio et fieri facere ab ipso Rege eidem Junio de Lucaro unam apouiliam, sigillatam suo sigillo, continentem, qualiter ipse dominus Rex uel suus successor nec frater, filii seu filia dicti Charauidi seu aliqua alia persona de dicta centura et ladica et ducatis non possint facere uel mouere aliquam litem uel questionem in regno Raxie et Slauonie seu in aliquo loco, in curia uel extra, eidem Junio). According to the later historian Mauro Orbini a certain Karabides Fratnut with Đuraš Ilijić were among the closest counsellors of the Serbian Young King Stefan Uroš Dušan. They were with the young king, when he planned to owerthrow the government of his father Stefan Uroš III Dečanski.

He bought an 11 modioi vineyard with a nearby wasteland in Malesta from Mitas and sold it to Ioannes Sguros Orestes (Καὶ εἰς τὴν Μάλεσ̣τ̣αν ἀ̣μ̣πέλιον ἐξ ἀγορᾶς ἀπὸ τ̣ο̣ῦ̣ δηλωθέντο̣ς Καρβωνά̣ρ̣η̣ παρὰ τοῦ ε̣ἰ̣ρ̣ημένου Μιτᾶ ἐκείνου μοδίων ἕνδεκα, καὶ χέρσον μερικὸν συμπαρακ̣είμ̣εν̣ον).

He vended also a vineyard in Malesta to Ioannes Sguros Orestes, where a 20 modioi vineyard was set out by the latter (Ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἀμπέλιον εἰς τὴν Μάλεσταν ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ δηλωθέντος Καρβωνάρη, ἐν ὧ κατεφυτεύθη παρ’ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕτερον ἀμπέλιον μοδίων εἴκοσι, σὺν τῆ ἐκεῖσε εὑρισκομένη χερσαία γῆ).

He endowed it with vineyard, field and hayfields and gave it to the Hilandar Monastery. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the donation and approved the claims of the Hilandar Monastery on the property. He also exempted the subordinates of Kar’b and all free people, who wished to settle near the church, from all the services for the Serbian king (I pride[a] kraljevьstvo mi crьkvь svetu Petku na Brěgalnici, što jestь zidalь Kar’ba samь svoima rukama i sь trudomь pace i popisьlь i ukrasilь krasotami crьkvnimi, da jestь metohь svete Bogorodice hilan’dar’ske sь vinogradomь i sь nivjemь i sěnokosi, pače i pašišta i zemlja, što mu je dalь gospodinь i roditelь kraljevьstva mi, i tu da si ima crьkvь.

I kraljevьstvo mi ōsvobodi ōnezi ljudi ōt vsěhь rabotь kraljevьstva mi malihь i velikihь, jakože i više pisano).

Her second husband was Konstantinos Dragases (Konstantin Dragaš) or the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos after 24th October 1386. Her grandson was the Byzantine Emperor Konstantinos XI Palaiologos. Michael Panaretos relates about her journey from Constantinople to the Monastery of Saint Phocas at Kordyle on 4th September 1395. On the following day she returned back to Trapezunt. Georgios Sphrantzes wrote as an argument for the marriage of the Byzantine Emperor Konstantinos XI Palaiologos with Mara Branković the fact, that also Eudokia had married a Turkish chieftain and bore him a child, before she became the wife of Konstantinos’ XI. grandfather.

Raymond-Joseph Loenertz, Ivan Đurić, Radivoj Radić, Hristo Matanov, Mihailo Popović and Anthony Kaldellis suggest that her husband was Konstantinos Dragases, other scholars plead for the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos, who appears as the husband of Eudokia in the historical work of Laonikos Chalkokondyles.

The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated in October 1345 his estates to the Monastery of Saint John Prodromos near Serres (εἰς τὸ χωρίον τὸ Λεγγίνιον τὴν οἰκονομίαν τοῦ Λάσκαρη ἐκείνου μετὰ τοῦ ζευγηλατείου τοῦ κατεχομένου παρὰ τοῦ Καντακουζηνοῦ καὶ τῶν ἐν αὐτῆ τριῶν χειμερινῶν ὑδρομυλώνων καὶ τοῦ εἰς τὸ χωρίον τὸ Μελενικίτζιον παροίκου καὶ τῶν οἰκημάτων καὶ τῆς ἑτέρας γῆς ἣν εἶχεν ὁ ῥηθεὶς Λάσκαρης μετὰ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ ἐν διαφόροις τόποις, καὶ τοῦ παλαιοχωρίου τοῦ λεγομένου Πρωτοκνέτζη, καὶ τοῦ Βελιδόλου καὶ τῶν ἐκεῖ δύο μυλώνων καθὰ προκατείχοντο καὶ παρὰ τοῦ ἐπὶ τοῦ κανικλείου ἐκείνου).
Laskaris Georgios Person He is mentioned in the donation deed of Konstantinos Palaiologos Laskaris for the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos from June 1374. He appears as δοῦλος of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos in the charter. He was the son of Makarios Laskaris Koteanitzes. His brothers were Konstantinos Palaiologos Laskaris and Leon Koteanitzes Laskaris. He signed the donation deed of his brother for the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos from June 1374 concerning the village of Mpresnitza near the town of Strumica.
Laskaris, Konstantinos Palaiologos Person It is very unlikely that he was identical with Konstantinos Laskaris, who was a resident at Serres in 1377. He was the issuer of the donation deed for the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos from June 1374. The charter refers to him as κῦρ and δοῦλος of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos. He was the son of Makarios Laskaris Koteanitzes. His brothers were Georgios Laskaris and Leon Koteanitzes Laskaris. He inherited the village Mpresnitza near the town of Strumica from his mother. His father donated in 1364 the village Mpresnitza to the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos. The monks from the Hilandar Monastery accused his father of unlawful seizure of their land. Konstantinos Palaiologos Laskaris appealed the case to the patriarchal tribunal requesting to nullify the donation on account of the inalienability of the dowry. After he received a favourable decision from the patriarch, he confirmed in June 1374 the donation of the village Mpresnitza to the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos as legal (τὸ μητρόθεν μοι περιελθὸν εἰς κληρονομίαν χωρίον περὶ τὴν Στρούμπιτζαν μὲν εὐρισκόμενον, Μπρέσνιτζαν δὲ ἐπονομαζόμενον, μετὰ πάσης ἧς νῦν ἔχει νομῆς καὶ περιοχῆς).
Laskaris, Leon Koteanitzes Person He is mentioned in the donation deed of Konstantinos Palaiologos Laskaris for the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos from June 1374. He appears as δοῦλος of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos in the charter. He was the son of Makarios Laskaris Koteanitzes. His brothers were Konstantinos Palaiologos Laskaris and Georgios Laskaris. He signed the donation deed of his brother for the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos from June 1374 concerning the village of Mpresnitza near the town of Strumica.
Laskaris, Makarios Koteanitzes Person Mentioned in the two variants of the chrysobull charter confirming the donations of Hrelja to the Hilandar Monastery in the area of Štip and Strumica issued by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan and in the decision of the Protaton on Mount Athos from December 1370. Died before 1374. He appeared as κῦρ in the decision of the Protaton on Mount Athos from December 1370. He was a monk. He was the father of Konstantinos Palaiologos Laskaris, Georgios Laskaris and Leon Koteanitzes Laskaris. He donated in 1364 the village Mpresnitza to the Saint Panteleimon Monastery on Mount Athos. The monks from the Hilandar Monastery accused him of an unlawful seizure of their land (οὗ τινος δὴ χωρίου γῆ προσηνέχθη μετὰ τοῦ δηλωθέντος χρυσοβούλλου παρὰ τοῦ ἐν μοναχοῖς κῦρ Μακαρίω Λάσκαρη τοῦ Κοτεανίτζη, ὅπερ μετὰ δολιότητος διὰ τὸ κλαπῆναι καὶ τὸ χρυσόβουλλον παρὰ τῶν δηλωθέντων Ῥωσῶν, καὶ συναρπαγεῖς ὁ Λάσκαρις ἐξέδοτο καὶ πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ τοιοῦτος τόπος). They insisted on their claim on the grounds of a chrysobull granted to their monastery. The Protaton on Mount Athos gathered in December 1370 at the behest of the Serbian Despot Ioan Uglješa (Ioannes Unklesis) ruled the dispute over the village of Mpresnitza in favour of the Hilandar Monastery. Makarios Koteanitzes Laskaris probably possessed also the village of Sekirnik and a parcel of land (Selište Sekir’nik i komat zemlje što jestь drьžalь Laskarь Kotanicь/Selo Sěkir’nykь i zem’lja što jestь drьžalь Laskarь Kotanicь).
Lebunes Manuel Person Mentioned in the deed of sale from 1344. He was Domestikos, Anagnostes and Nomikos of the Metropolis of Melnik.

Lena Person Mentioned in the sources from 1348 to 1388/1389. The sources refer to her as kyra. She was Serbian queen (kralica). She became nun probably before 1385. She was married to Demetrios Blukasinos (Δημήτριος Βλουκασῖνος). They had together four sons (Marko, the King, Andrěašь, Dmitьrь, Ivaniša) and one daughter (Olivera).

The executors of the last will of Pavle Barabić from the Ragusan republic contacted on 8th June 1374 her logotet Dabiživь (cum logofeto, misso per consortem condam dicti domini regis et per heredes suos) in order to control the treasury of Demetrios Blukasinos, which the Serbian King had deposited at Pavle Barabić. Dabiživь became 30 ducats for his expenses. Her name appears in the ktitorial inscription above the south door in the interior of the Church of the so-called Marko’ Monastery (Saint Demetrius Monastery in Sušice near Skopje), which was completed in 1376/1377 (Izvōlenïemь ōtca i voplьšenïem sina i sьšestviemь svetago duha ōbnovi se i popisa si svety i božestavni hramь svetago velikōmučenika Hristova pobědōnosca i myrotočьca Dimitrija sь usrьdïemь i potštanïemь blagověrnago kralja Vlkašina sь blagověrniei kralice Eleny i sь prěvazljublenym eju i prьvorodnimь sinomь blagověrnimь kraljemь Markomь i Andreašemь i Ivanïšemь i Dimïtrom vь lěto ·ѕ·ō·p·e· si že monastirь nače se zdati lěto ·ѕ·ō·n·g· vь dni blagověrnago cara Stefana i hristoljubivago kralja Vlьkašina a sьvrši se vь dьni blagověrnago i hristoljubivago kralja Marka).

Her name appears in the Bigorski pomenik (prisnopominaemuju kralicu monahïju Elisavethu).
Leo Person Mentioned in the charter from 26th March 1388, in which the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš confirmed the endowment of the Duke Dmitrь for the Church of Ascension in the town of Štip.

He donated a field beyond the village of Krušica and the road to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo. His land ran from the boundary mark of Sipundin to the boundary mark of Kanaděj (Niva koju dade kalogerь Leondije, poredь Krušice, prěs-putь, ōtь Sipun᾿dinove mege do Kanaděja).
Levunь Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter from 1300 issued by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin for the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje. Probably already dead before 1300. He owned a property near the possession of the Monastery of Saint Georg-Gorg near Skopje (Niva u Srědorěcě do Mogile, i do popa Huda, i do nive Levunove). He probably held also the village, which was mentioned in the boundary description of the village Črěševo (A mege čreševьske počinajutь: ōt Črьne Gore kako slazi dolcь na Dlьbinu, na Mogilu, ta na Mramorь do Krьsta, ta nizь dělь na butelьski putь, ōt butelьskago puti prězь Kavijanovo brьdo, kako grede putь k Ralici na visu, stavь na Rudině, na cěstu koja grede na Levunovo selo, i ōt Levunova sela na Běli kami, ōt Běloga kamʼne uz děl na Dlьgu polěnu, ta nad Svetuju Bogorodicu črьnogorьsku do Črьnoga kamene). His estates in and near Skopje were granted by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin to the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg near Skopje. They consisted of two ruins or building grounds near the old residence of the Monastery of Saint George-Gorg, a 20 pogonь field in the vicinity of the watermill, which belonged to the monastery and a 7 pogonь garden under the monastery.

Liberissa Maria Person The hypothesis of J. Radonić that Maria Liberissa was identical with Maria Palaiologina (Μαρία Παλαιολογίνα) was refuted by M. Laskaris. Mentioned in the sources between 1340/1341 and 1349. She is mentioned as a deceased person in the charter of the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for the Hilandar Monastery from the 15th August 1381. She appears as Despotica (1347–1350, before 1381) and βασίλισσα (1349). It is not clear, if her father was Georgios Karabides (Γεώργιος Καραβίδης). She was married to Ioannes Liberos (᾿Ιωάννης Λίβερος, Jovan Oliver). They had together six sons (Kraikos [Κράϊκος, Krajko], Damianos [Δαμιανός, Damjan], Vidoslavь, Dabiživь, Rusinь, Oliverь) and one daughter (Danica). According to the stone inscription above the Western Entrance of the Katholikon in the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo from 1340/1341, she, her husband Ioannes Liberos (Ioan Oliver) and her son Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) sponsored the reconstruction and the painted decoration of the monastery. She, her husband and her son Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) endowed the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo with lands in the surrounding area (sьzda se světlyi i čьs(t)nъï.hramь.velikago vojevode vьïšnih silь.

Her name appears on a metal polycandilion with an inscribed medallion, which was ordered for the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo by Ioannes Liberos, when he held the position of the Grand Duke (voevoda oliver anna marija). Maria Liberissa together with her husband and her sons Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) and Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) were the patrons of the parecclesion of the Saint John the Baptist in the Church of Saint Sophia in Ōhrid. The chapel was erected between the years 1347–1350. Maria Liberissa together with her husband and her son Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) are depicted within the ktitorial composition on the western wall of the chapel. The portrait of Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) is situated on the northern wall of the chapel. Maria Liberissa and her family sponsored a new narthex as a addition to the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo. The painted ktitorial composition with Ioannes Liberos, Maria Liberissa (Μαρία Λιβέρισσα, Ana Marija), Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) and Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) is on the northern wall of the narthex. The fresco inscription above the entrance from the narthex to the naos gives details about the donors and the date 1349, when the narthex was decorated (Ἀνηγέρθη ἐκ βάθρων, καὶ ἀνηστορίθη ὁ θεῖος καὶ πάνσεπτος ναὸς τοῦ ταξιαρχου Μιχ δι’ ἐξόδου τοῦ πανευτυχεστάτου δεσπότου Ιωάννου τοῦ Λύβερί. καὶ τῆς πανευτυχεστάτης βασιλείσης Μαρίας τῆς Λυβερίσης καὶ τῶν τέκνων αὐτῶν, Κραίκου καὶ Δαμιανοῦ. ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλεί Στεφάνου καὶ Ἐλένης, καὶ τοῦ ύιοῦ αὐτῶν κράλη τοῦ Οὐροσι μηνὶ αὐγύστῳ ѕʹ ἔτους ϛωνζ ἰνδ β). According to the charter of the Serbian Despot Konstantin Dragaš for the Hilandar Monastery from 15th August 1381 Maria Liberissa expressed short before her death the will that the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo should devolve after her death on the Hilandar Monastery. (I kako je i despotica Ōlivera despota na sьmrьti rekla i sь synōma svoima Kraikōmь i Rusinomь da je paki tai crьkvь Hilandaru).
Liberos Ioannes Person Mentioned in several sources between 1336 and 1354. The inscription placed next to the portrait of Ioannes Liberos on the north wall of the naos in the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo lists all dignities, which were granted to him during his career (azь rabь hristovь iōanь ōliverь po milosti božiei i gospodina mi krala stefana bihь u srьblemь veliky čelnikь potom veliki sulga potomь veliki voevoda potomь veliky sevastokratorь i/a za věrnoe emu porabotanije po milosti božiei i veliki despotь vseja srьbskije zemle i pomorьskije i učestnikь grьkomь). Srdjan Pirivatrić presumes that the titles of grand sebastrokrator, grand despot and učestnik, were bestowed upon Ioannes Liberos by Byzantine imperial authorities before coronation of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in 1346. He held the position of veliki čelnik, before 1341. veliki sluga (megas domestikos), 1332–1341 (ja sluga veli Ōliverь/Iōanь veliki sluga Ōliverь vьse srpskie zemlie i pomorskie). veliki vojvoda (megas dux) 1341/1342 (sь trudomь i podanijemь raba božija ioana velikago voevode olivera; Veliki voevoda Ōlïver povelě pisati, a Stanislavь pisa; ōbьdrьžeštu ōblastiju vseju ōvčepolьskoju velikomu vojevodě Ōliveru, vь horě Zletovcěi; jegože velikyi vojevoda Ōliverь sьzda is temelja; povelěnijemь gospodina velikago vojevode Ōlivera; Bogь da prostitь velikago vojevodu Ōlivera). He was the son-in-law of Georgios Karabides (Γεώργιος Καραβίδης). His brother was Mpogdanos (Μπογδάνος, Bogdan). He was married to Maria Liberissa (Μαρία Λιβέρισσα, Ana Marija). He had six sons (Kraikos [Κράϊκος, Krajko], Damianos [Δαμιανός, Damjan], Vidoslavь, Dabiživь, Rusinь, Oliverь) and one daughter (Danica). Already in 1334 he got acquainted with Ioannes Kantakuzenos during the meeting between the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos and Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in Rhadobosdion (Radovište). They became friends. Jovan Oliver entrusted before 1341 his subordinate Todorь with the task to settle the deserted settlement site Sveti Dimitrije in Jastrebnica, which was in possession of the Monastery of Saint Demetrius in Kočane. Jovan Oliver issued between 1332 and 1341 a charter, in which were listed the rights and duties of Todorь at Sveti Dimitrije in Jastrebnica (Naidohь selište pusto Svetago Dimitrija u Jastrebnicě i podahь moga člověka Todora, koi mi se prěda izь Grьkь, po ruce da naseli ōmozi selo). Ioannes Liberos, the son-in-law of Georgios Karabides, stated on 28th June 1336 in the presence of Nikola Falletro, the comes of the town of Ragusa, that he received the former treasury of Karabides from Junije Lukarević. Ioannes Liberos swore that he will give the treasury to the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan and request a charter for Junije Lukarević from the king, which will confirm the receipt of treasury and ruled out the possibility of demand by the king, Liberos or the children of Karabides (Oliuer Gherchinich, baro domini Regis Raxie et gener Charauide, constitutes ante presentiam nobilis et potentis viri domini Nicolai Falletro, honorabilis comitis Ragusii, contentus e confessus fuit habuisse et recepisse et apud se habere a Junio de Lucarom de Ragusio unam centuram de argento et unam ladicam de argento, ponderis inter ambas librarum tredecim et unciarum V, et centum nonaginta quinque ducatos de auro, que centura et ladica et ducati acomandati fuerunt per dictum Carauidam, socerum olim dicti Oliueri, eidem Junio, ut idem Junius confessus fuit. Et similiter idem Oliverius confessus fuit tantas fuisse res et ducatos, accomandatas eidem Junio per dictum Charauidam et non plures, cum infrascriptis pactis et condictionibus, uidelicet quod ipse Oliuerius teneatur et debeat predictam centuram et ladicam et ducatos dare in manibus domini Regis Raxie in presentia Petri de Ribica et Marini filii Junii de Uolcasso de Ragusio et fieri facere ab ipso Rege eidem Junio de Lucaro unam apouiliam, sigillatam suo sigillo, continentem, qualiter ipse dominus Rex uel suus successor nec frater, filii seu filia dicti Charauidi seu aliqua alia persona de dicta centura et ladica et ducatis non possint facere uel mouere aliquam litem uel questionem in regno Raxie et Slauonie seu in aliquo loco, in curia uel extra, eidem Junio). Ioannes Liberos owned and received from the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan landed estates in the region of Ovče Pole, Zletovo and Tikveš for his service. According to the stone inscription above the Western Entrance of the Katholikon in the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo from 1340/1341, he, his wife and his son Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) sponsored the reconstruction and the painted decoration of the monastery. He, his wife and his Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) endowed the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo with lands in the surrounding area (sьzda se světlyi i čьs(t)nъï.hramь.velikago vojevode vьïšnih silь.

He supplied the monastery with the Menaion. The scribe Stanislavь, who wrote the menaion, recorded, that Ioannes Liberos donated also frames for the screen icons and church vessels to the monastery with the intention to grant the monastery to the Hilandar Monastery (velikyi vojevoda ōliverь sьzda is temelija i sьvrьšivь i popisa i vsakimi dorotami ukrasivь, sьsudï zlatьïmi i srebrьnьïmi pokova velikyje ikony srebromь i zlatomь, jakože jestь lěpo domь božii ukrašati, podavь sela i metohije i pašišta i livade i planine milostiōvь kralevovь utvrьdivь vse sinore i zapisavь zlatopečatnymь hrisovulomь i prědastь ju u svetu goru stoi bogorodici hilandarьskoi sь vsakymь utvrьždenijemь). As a Grand Duke, Ioannes Liberos, ordered the fabrication of a metal polycandilion with an inscribed medallion for the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo (voevoda oliver anna marija). When the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos had proceeded in 1342 with his army along the right bank of the river Vardar, he discovered the forces of Ioannes Liberos near Belesos (Veles). The Byzantine emperor sent an envoy to Liberos in order to remind him of the friendly contacts they had before. Very short after the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos had crossed the river, Ioannes Liberos hosted him and his troops for three days. The Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos, who placed reliance on Liberos, even proposed a marriage between his son Manuel and Danica, the daughter of Liberos. Ioannes Liberos provided accomodation for the Byzatine emperor and his troops in Skopje. In the meantime Liberos visited the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in the area of Morava. Liberos persuaded the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan to receive the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos favourably. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan then sent Mpogdanos (Μπογδάνος, Bogdan), the brother of Ioannes Liberos, to the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos in order to let him know about his soon arrival in Tao (Pauni) near Pristenon (Priština). In July/August 1342 the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan formed an alliance with the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos. Ioannes Liberos brought the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan to convince the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos in regard of the engagment beween Danica and Manuel. Ioannes Liberos then accompanied the Byzantine Emperor with the Serbian auxiliary forces on the campaign to the town Serres. He fell ill before the gates of town of Serres. As sebastokrator Ioannes Liberos donated another medallion with monogramms for the polycandilion in the Monastery of Saint Archangel Michael and Holy Father Gabriel in Lěsnovo. The monastic endowment of Ioannes Liberos became a seat of new founded Episcopy of Zletovo between 1346 and 1347, which is documented in the charter of confirmation issued by the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (v’seljubimomu vlastelinu svetago carьsva mi despotu Ōliveru, iže jestь sьzdalь svetyi hramь ōnь ōtь osnovanija, iže vь městě Lěsnově, i ukrasivь v’sěkymi lěpotami crьkьvnymi, i udarovavь sel’mi i sь zaselьci, i sь planinami, i sь pročïimi ōtesy zemlje te). Ioannes Liberos together with his wife and his sons Kraikos (Κράϊκος, Krajko) and Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) were the patrons of the parecclesion of the Saint John the Baptist in the Church of Saint Sophia in Ōhrid. The chapel was erected between the years 1347–1350. Ioannes Liberos together with his wife and his son Damianos (Δαμιανός, Damjan) are depicted within the ktitorial composition on the western wall of the chapel.

ΤΗΣ ΒΑΣΕΙΛΙΣΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΟΝΟΜΑΣΘΕΙΣΗΣ ΜΑΡΙΝΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΚΤΙΤΟΡΙΣΑΣ ΤΟΥ ΝΑΟΥ). She is depicted as a nun wearing the model of the church. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated the Church of Saint George at Pološko with endowment at the request of Marina (Maria) to the Monastery of Hilandar (da jestь tazi crьkvь i s těmizi selami Bogorodice hilan’dar’ske do dьni i do věka u pomenь kraljevstva mi i bratu kraljevstva mi Dragušinu i u večnu pametь, s volomь i sь hotěnijemь kraljevstva mi despotice).
Marinos Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Sguros Orestes from August 1323. He had brothers. He and his siblings sold a meadow to Ioannes Sguros Orestes (Ἕτερον χωράφιον ἐξ ἀλλαγωγῆς σὺν τῶ ἐκεῖσε λιβαδίω καὶ ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ Μαρίνου καὶ τῶν αὐταδέλφων αὐτοῦ μοδίων πεντήκοντα).
Marïo Person Mentioned in the third charter (1343/1345) of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Monastery of Treskavec. The charter denotes him as a kirь. His property is attested in the boundary description of a 80 kьbьl large in the middle of Kučьkověne and near Vinci, which was given to the Treskavec Monastery by the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan (Niva po srědě Kučkovьanь u Vinьcehь; niva Plisvareva i Kondrova kьblomь p. do puti kučkovianskoga idušte u kira Marïo i do rěčišta Evrěiskoga i puti ōbrьšanskoga).
Marko Person He lived before summer 1343. He donated one half of a 15 pogon field under Suhačja for the sake of salvation to the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo (Niva pod tom᾿zi Suhači, što dade Drag᾿čo polovinu a Marko polovinu za dušu, na 15 pogonь).
Markos Person 17.05.1395 The fragmentary preserved inscription above the entrance on the south wall of the Church of the Holy Mother of God in Drenovo, which is dated to 1356 or later, refers to a painter Dimitr’, who worked on the decoration of the church Drenovo after the death of the Serbian Emperor Stefan (probably Uroš IV Dušan) at the same time as the dominion was controlled by Nikola (Nikola Stanjevikь?) and Marko (Markos, the King?) (sьzda se hram’ si v’ lě.. ѕ i ō.....i azь Dimitr’ zugraf priloh’ vь hramь sei...lě..z i d i pisah’ pri drž’avě Nikole i Markě po smrьti svetorodnago cara Stefana). The hypothesis about the identity of Marko from the inscription and Markos was refuted by Evgenij P. Naumov. He died on 17th May 1395. He appears in the sources as mladi kralj. He was the co–ruler of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V, 27.9.1371–2. (4.) 12. 1371, since 2. (4). 12. 1371 formal king of the Serbian Empire. He was the son of the Serbian King Demetrios Blukasinos and Lena. His siblings were Andrěašь, Dmitьrь, Ivanišь and Olivera. He was married to Jelena, the daughter of Radoslabos Chlapenos. He divorced her and lived then with Thodora, who was the daughter of a certain Grьgurь, probably Grьgurь Branković. After the romance with Thodora ended, Markos gave Thodora to Radoslabos Chlapenos and remarried Jelena according to dijak Dobre, who wrote about it in a note in the festal Menaion (Pysa se sija knyga u Porěči, u selě zovom Kalugerecь vь dьni blagověrnago kralja Mar’ka, jegda ōdade Thodoru Grьgurovu ženu Hlapenu, a uze ženu svoju prьvověn’čan’nu Jelenu, Hlapenovu dьštere). Markos divorced her again because of her bad behaviour according to Mauro Orbini. The later Greek chronicler Makarios Melissenos relates that Andronikos IV Palaiologos, the son of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos, together with his father-in-law Markos, who ruled over the Bulgarian land, sought help at the court of the Ottoman Sultan (καὶ τοῦ πενθεροῦ αὐτοῦ Μάρκου τοῦ τῆς Βουλγαρίας ἔτι μέρος δεσπόζοντος). In July 1361 he was in Dubrovnik as an emissary. The Ragusans gave him back his silver deposit under the condition that he will not trade with it and with the 25 pounds of silver, which belonged to Lena, his mother (Prima pars est de restituendo Marco ambaxiatori argentum suum cum hac conditione, quod non possit emere mercationes cum ipso nisi de libris XXV argenti uxoris Volcassini). Demetrios Blukasinos intended to marry Markos to the daughter of the Croatian nobleman Gregor Pavlović Šubić. Demetrios Blukasinos contacted therefore the Bosnian King Tvrtko at whose court the woman lived as a protégé. The plan of Demetrios Blukasinos failed because of the opposition of Pope Urban V, who did not allow to marry the catholic princess to schismatic Markos. Pope Urban V expressed his point of view to Tvrtko in a letter from April 1370 (quodque tu eandem puellam tradere nuptui filio mangnifici viri Regis Rascie scismatico absque dictorum parentum voluntate procuras, in anime ipsius puelle periculum, eorundem parentum iniuriam et offensam fidei christiane). Markos is attested along with his mother Lena and his brother Andrěašь in the charter of the Serbian King Demetrios Blukasinos for the Ragusan Republic, which was issued on 5th April 1370 (i po vʼse dni veselešti mi se vь zemʼli kraljevstva mi sь prěvьzljubljenʼnomь kraljestva mi kralicomь kyra Lěnom i sь prěvьzʼljubʼljenʼnimi synovi kraljevstva mi Markomь i Anьdrějašemь). The Church of Saint Sunday (Sveta Nedela) in Prizren was renovated under the patronage of Markos in 1370/1371. He is attested as a young king in the ktirorial inscription (izvōljenjemь ōtca i vьplьštenijemь sina i blagodětiju svetago duha. sii svety i božьstvny hramь prěčьstïe vladičice naše bogordice. vьhoda ne sьzda se ï popisa. Pōvělěnïemь ï sь ōtkupōmь gospodina mladago krala marka lěto ·ѕ·ō·o·th· indiktiōn th). Ioannes Unklesis mentioned Markos in the charter for the Monastery Lavra on the Holy Mount Athos from April 1371 as his anepsei. Markos and Demetrios Blukasinos planned a campaign against Nikola Altomanović in the spring 1371. They camped near Skutari, on the territory of their ally Đurađ I Balšić, in July 1371 and were ready to attack Onogošt in the land of Altomanović (Li çintili homini et lo comun di Ragusa reçevi una littera, la qual lor mandasti tu Andrea Pastrovich, dando lor a savere, ca Jura cum misser lo re Volchassin et cum Marco suo fio, cum lor hoste son suta Scutari, et va sovra çuppan Nicola o in Anagast). The attack never took place, because the Ottomans threatened Ioannes Unklesis. Demetrios Blukasinos rushed to help his brother. After Ioannes Unklesis and Demetrios Blukasinos were killed at the battle of Marica on 26th September 1371, Markos became the co–ruler of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. When the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. died on 2th (or 4th) December 1371, Markos became the formal king of the Serbian Empire, but his rule was never accepted by the local Serbian aristocrats. Subsequently, the Serbian local aristocrats took advantage of the militarily weakened position of Markos and gradually seized large parts of his lands. Lazar took very early Priština and Novo Brdo, in 1372 Đurađ I Balšić occupied Prizren, later Kastoria, Bulkos (Vlkь Brankovikь) controlled since 1376/1377 the Skopje area and Konstantinos Dragases with his brother Ioannes expanded also their territory at the expense of Markos. Markos ruled since then over the area of Pelagonia and had his stronghold in Prilep. Markos minted his own coins. Markos renovated also the Church of the Saint Archangels in Prilep around 1372. The main entrance to the church is flanked by the painted portrait of Demetrios Blukasinos and Markos, who is depicted in the white sakkos. The portrait of Markos bears an inscription (Vь hrista boga věrenь kralь Marko). Markos became the vassal of the Ottoman sultan following the meeting at Serres in winter 1393/1394. Markos rebuilt the Saint Demetrius Monastery near the village Sušica (the so-called Marko’s Monastery) between 1376/1377 and 1381 (Izvōlenïemь ōtca i voplьšenïem sina i sьšestviemь svetago duha ōbnovi se i popisa si svety i božestavni hramь svetago velikōmučenika Hristova pobědōnosca i myrotočьca Dimitrija sь usrьdïemь i potštanïemь blagověrnago kralja Vlkašina sь blagověrniei kralice Eleny i sь prěvazljublenym eju i prьvorodnimь sinomь blagověrnimь kraljemь Markomь i Andreašemь i Ivanïšemь i Dimïtrom vь lěto ·ѕ·ō·p·e· si že monastirь nače se zdati lěto ·ѕ·ō·n·g· vь dni blagověrnago cara Stefana i hristoljubivago kralja Vlьkašina a sьvrši se vь dьni blagověrnago i hristoljubivago kralja Marka). The lunette of the south door of the monastery church is decorated with his portrait. Markos is shown holding a horn in his right hand and a scroll with the inscription Azь vь Hrista Boga blagověrьni kralь Markos sьzdahь i popisahь sy božestvni hramь. He together with his brother Markos marched in 1389 with the troops of the Ottoman Sultan Murad I against the army of the Serbian Prince Lazaros (Lazar Hrebeljanović) and Bulkos (Vuk Branković) according to the Tronoški rodoslov from the 18th century (Amuratь že ōbrativь voinstvō skoe na deržavu lazarevu, predvodimь markomь i andreemь). He together with Konstantinos Dragases as Ottoman vassals marched on the side of the Sultan Bayazid I. against the Wallachian army led by Mircea the Elder. He perished in the battle of Rovine on 17th May 1395. Markos is the hero of the Serbian epic poetry.
Markušь Person Mentioned in the so-called Nomic’s charter, which is included in the inventory of property of the Holy Virgin Monastery in Htětovo from 1342/1343. He and Geōrgi,the Bishop of Prizren, requested the gathered local noblemen and people at the Monastery of the Holy Virgin in Htětovo on 4th november of an unspecified year to swear to tell the truth concerning the disputed land located on the hill called Pleš (I zakle ih jepiskopь prizrěnьski Geōrgii Markušь vse starce i vlastele, i idoše na Plěšь na brьdo, da iznaidutь po svědočʼbě čija je Plěšь, ili jestь crьkevna ili Progonova). One of the elders, who testified in the procedure, was Pribislav. Vrěviō refers to him as a man of Markuš (I reče starcь Pribislavь, Markuševь člověk).
