  1. Stefan

    Stefan was a honorific name adopted by the monarchs of the Nemanjić dynasty, the rulers of Serbia in the Middle Ages. It is thought to be connected with the Byzantine Imperial association of the martyrdom of Saint Stephen; a symbol of the Empire. The name is derived from Greek Stephanos, meaning "crown". The name tradition began with Stephen Nemanja, and continued consecutively until the last ruler. St. Stephen was the patron saint of the Serbian state and royal government, and he was depicted on the reverse of the royal seals of the early Nemanjić rulers, and on their basic coins. According to Popović, the name was more of a title than name in the Serbian rulers, and according to Ćirković, the name had a special symbolical meaning to the Serbian state. Bosnian Ban Tvrtko also adopted the name when he was crowned King, and it was then used by all monarchs of the Kotromanić dynasty. According to Serbian historiography, Tvrtko adopted the name when crowned at Mileševa, as a descendant of the Nemanjić dynasty through a maternal line. According to Bašić, the adoption of the name cannot be said to stem from the Bosnian rulers' belonging to the Nemanjić dynasty, Byzantine cultural realm, or a Serb identity; it was simply a sign that they controlled areas previously held by the Nemanjić dynasty.
