From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Berislavić or Beriszló (Cyrillic: Бериславић) was a medieval noble family from Slavonia.

They are descendants of the first native Bosnian Ban, Borić. They got their name from their land in Grabarje, Slavonia.

Following the execution of King Stephen Tomašević by the Turks in 1463, Stjepan Berislavić became the heir to the Bosnian throne and the heir to the Serbian despot throne.[1] Turks then executed him too, in 1535.[2][3] Stjepan's heir Duke of Dubočac Ivan Berislavić converted to Islam in 17th century.[4]
