Regents of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia was a remote mountain area, which for a long time managed to preserve its freedom from foreign rulers. It was however conquered by Hungary 1137 and was then ruled by so called bans. But even after this was Bosnia practically an autonomous region and became later more and more independent. This process was completed with the coronation of Tvertko I to king 1377. The Bosnian kingdom experienced a brief period of greatness until it was conquered by the Ottoman Empire 1463. Thereafter was Bosnia together with Herzegovina (the southern corner of the present day republic) an Ottoman province, which 1878 came under Austrian control and after the First World War was part of Yugoslavia until it became independent 1992.

Herzegovina

The origin of Herzegovina was the small principality of Zahumlje (also called Hum). I changed hands between Duklja (Montenegro) and Serbia before it became a part of Bosnia in the 14th century. Herzegovina got its present name because of its ruler, who rebelled against the Bosnian king, chose to style himself as a "hercog" (duke). The name Herzegovina actually means "the duchy". The period of independence was however brief and it was conquered by the Ottoman Empire 1481. Since 1853 have Herzegovina been included in the name of the Ottoman province of Bosnia and its successors of which the modern republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina is included.
