Milutin

 

(also Stefan Uros II). Date of birth unknown; died Oct. 29, 1321. Serbian king whose reign began in 1282; member of the Nemanja dynasty.

Supported by the church, Milutin significantly strengthened central authority and beginning in 1282 waged a successful war against Byzantium. The war’s outcome was affirmed by the peace of 1299 and by Milutin’s marriage to the daughter of the Byzantine emperor. One result of the war was Serbia’s annexation of most of Macedonia, including Skopje, as well as Vidin and other territories.
