Realm of Nikola Altomanović

Nikola Altomanović (Vojinović) (Serbian:Никола Алтомановић/Nikola Altomanović) was Serbian župan from 14th century. He ruled vast areas from Rudnik, over Polimlje, Podrinje, east Herzegovina with Trebinje, till Konavle and Dračevica, neighboring the Republic of Dubrovnik. He was defeated and blinded in Užice (fortress Užice) in 1373 by a coalition of his neighbors supported by the king of Hungary.


His father was Altoman, a vojvod in Zeta. In 1363, Nikola's uncle Vojislav Vojinović was killed and Nikola used his uncle's death to gain a piece of his land. In 1371, he allied himself with King Vukašin Mrnjavčević.

In 1373, a military alliance against Nikola was created, which included Bosnian Ban Tvrtko I Kotromanić, Zetan Ruler Đurađ I Balšić, Mačvan Prince Nikola Gorjanski, and Hungarian King Ludovik I. In the same year, they battled against Nikola and Nikola lost, thus his territory was split between Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović of Serbia, Đurađ I Balšić of Zeta, and Ban Tvrtko I Kotromanić of Bosnia.
