The fall of the Serbian Empire was a decades-long process in the late 14th century. Following the death of childless Emperor Stefan Uroš V in 1371, the Empire was left without an heir and the magnates, velikaši, obtained the rule of its provinces and districts (in so called feudal fragmentation), continuing their offices as independent with titles such as gospodin, and despot, given to them ...

The period after 1371, known as the Fall of the Serbian Empire saw the once-powerful state fragmented into several principalities, culminating in the Battle of Kosovo (1389) against the rising Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans finally conquered the Serbian Despotate in 1459. The Ottoman threat and eventual conquest saw massive migrations of Serbs to ...

Imbris, please stop inserting the incorrect flag. That is not the Serbian Empire's flag. It was (and only partially) used in the Serbian Kingdom. Despite the fact that I have explained it to you, you again returned. --PaxEquilibrium (talk) 22:32, 1 March 2008 (UTC) You have not explained anything. You have pushed for the change from the day before. Both flags :Image:Serbian Empire flag.svg and this one which you push for should be deleted as unsourced. I do not know why do you think we should let you change something just to make your image un-orphaned. -- Imbris (talk) 00:12, 2 March 2008 (UTC) 1. I put it here not as a Flag (Flags in common sense were invented only with the passing of the Industrial Age), but as a symbol of the Nemanyiden - what do you mean not sourced? I have posted sources to you for how many times I don't even remember, but you constantly ignore them and very aggressively push to delete them. --PaxEquilibrium (talk) 11:48, 2 March 2008 (UTC) 1.1. http://www.crw...
I have one objection. I am from Romania, town Ovidiu near Constanţa and I am historic. I know that Dobruja (Constanţa County and Tulcea County) was part of Serbian Empire (actually Bulgarian Empire which was vassal). So, Serbian Empire was twice times long than your map say. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Blexandar (talk • contribs) 12:53, 2 October 2010 (UTC) 1. So, you are either no historian or have been misled by a book or a person because the Bulgarian Empire was never a vassal of Serbia. --Gligan (talk) 12:31, 9 December 2010 (UTC) TERÖRİST SIRPLAR KASAPLAR — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 14:24, 12 January 2012 (UTC) Actually Bulgaria was a Serbian vassalage at that timr, even more, because of the Bulgarians that supported him as their ruler, Tsar Dusan the Mighty became a Tsar, and Serbia an Empire. Bulgarian Slavs and Serbs are more or less the same people, just that Serbs call themselves by their native name, while Bulgarians adopted a denomin...
The Byzantine Empire was neither a predecessor nor a successor of the Serbian Empire, so I will remove that now. --Gligan (talk) 12:31, 9 December 2010 (UTC) Byzantine Empire with Serbian Empire as its succesor was recognized by all nations during the period, so I restore the information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:9A0:7:751:14E3:98C3:264:FD9D (talk) 20:24, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
Which part of Croatia was under the rule of the Serbian Empire because I can't see well on the map?Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:17, 26 May 2012 (UTC) 1. Southernmost Dalmatia.--Zoupan22:22, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
This coat of arms is a joke, it has nothing to do with the medieval Serbian Empire. It's probably a product of national romanticism. — Preceding unsigned comment added by N Jordan (talk • contribs) 02:47, 13 October 2012 (UTC) 1. Absolutely. Be WP:BOLDremove such nonsense when you see it. 1. The flag also seems a bit too "stylish", for the period. That shape of the two-headed eagle is actually based on the modern-day flag of the Greek Orthodox Church. The kind of two-headed eagle from the present-day Serbian coat of arms would probably be more accurate. But we know that the flag was a red two-headed eagle on yellow, and that's all, so I'm fine with this. -- Director (talk) 02:40, 21 October 2012 (UTC) 1.1. Correction: there is an actual 14th century flag (wow). We probably shouldn't replace it with the Greek Orthodox Church version. That said, I suppose we could use a stylized version. -- Director (talk) 02:46, 21 October 2012 (UTC) 1.1.1. That COA was removed from this article 100...
Bulgaria was Serbian vassal state between 1331 and 1365, a fact completely ignored both in the article (I just added it) and in most of the maps. There are just some maps showing this reality: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:SerbianEmpire.jpg or https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Balkans_in_1350_according_to_Gustav_Droysen_from_19th_century.jpg FkpCascais (talk) 02:54, 2 November 2014 (UTC) 1. Are you sure about that information? It sounds too much like a fringe view. I noticed you have added a single source, but how does it support the 1331-1365 claim? Ivan Alexander was not considered a vassal and a royal marriage is hardly proof for such a thing. --Laveol T 04:00, 2 November 2014 (UTC) 1.1. I haven't said that the marriage was the reason for the vassal relationship, just that the marriage of Dushan with Helena extended the influence of Serbia at Second Bulgarian Empire aerticle (maybe that part can be reworded, no problem). But the main issue, the vassal relationship...The historical name of the state wasn't "Serbian Empire", but rather "Empire of the Serbs and Greeks".

I have been watching several articles of other nations and I noticed that when they have a sort of "maximum extent" map, or sometimes they don't even mention that, that they add the vassal states in the map as well, sometimes in a different color. I have found several sources claiming Bulgaria became vassal state of Serbia in this period. It would be good to have it in a map. Sources: 1. The Cambridge Medieval History Series Volumes I-V by J. B. Bury: "But for the ruler (referring to Dushan) of so vast realm, the title of King seemed insignificant, specially as his vassal, the ruler of Bulgaria, bore the great name of Tsar." 1. Europe in the 19th and 20th Centuries by E. Upson: "...including (talking of Dushan Empire) Bosnia, the Herzegovina, Macedonia, and the vassal State of Bulgaria herself." 1.

Should there be a flag used in the infobox, and if so, which one? There are several variants on commons (seen here).--Zoupan22:06, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Inaccurate map without context and explanation shouldn't be allowed to stand. Map from late XIX century (Allgemeiner historischer Handatlas 1886), by Gustav Droysen is obsolete and inaccurate - why would anyone use this map, anyway?! Even file description acknowledge that this map is inaccurate & doesn't comply with worldwide view! WP:SPS Also read: Wikipedia:Using_maps_and_similar_sources_in_Wikipedia_articlesIt's very simple - this map, with present article format and context shouldn't be allowed to stand because it is misleading piece of (dis)information !This is particularly interesting problem when other, more accurate & reliable, maps exists.--Santasa99 (talk) 20:04, 24 December 2015 (UTC) 1. I replaced the map for time being while a consensus is established here. The problem is not as serios as you put it, since at the begining of the article we have the infobox that includes a map, and that one ends up being the most representative of the article. The map you are disputing i...
The Second Serbian Uprising (1815–1817) was a second phase of the national revolution of the Serbs against the Ottoman Empire, which erupted shortly after the brutal annexation of the country to the Ottoman Empire and the failed Hadži Prodan's revolt.

The Vlastimirović dynasty was the first royal dynasty of the Serb people. Byzantine emperor Constantine VII Porphyrogenitus (r. 913–959) mentions that the Serbian throne is inherited by the son, i.e. the first-born, though in his enumeration of Serbian monarchs, on one occasion there was a triumvirate. The Serbs established several polities by the 10th century: Serbia or Zagorje (hinterlands) which consisted of Serbia (known as "Rascia" in historiography of the High Middle Ages), and Bosnia;...
With the annexation of Rascia, the previous crownland and seat of Serbia, the county around the city of Doclea emerges into a Principality, where the leaders adopt the title archon of Serbs (signifying supreme leadership among Serbs) alongside their given offices under Byzantine overlordship. The first office-holder was Peter of Diokleia, of which we only have a seal found in the 19th century. The next known is Jovan Vladimir, who became a Bulgarian vassal. Stefan Vojislav succeeds in giving...
In the mid-11th century, Mihailo I had liberated Rascia from Byzantine rule, and appointed his son Petrislav to rule as Prince, independently. In 1083, Constantine Bodinappoints brothers Vukan and Marko, sons of Petrislav, as rulers of Rascia. In 1089, the Byzantines capture Bodin, and Vukan retains independence, founding the Vukanović dynasty. The Vukanovići quickly claim the following Serbian domains in the following decades, and by 1148, the maritime possessions are united with the inland....
The Nemanjić dynastyruled the Serb lands between ca. 1166 up to 1371.
The crumbling Serbian Empire under Stefan Uroš V (called "the Weak") was to be of little resistance to the powerful Ottoman Empire. In light of conflicts and decentralization of the realm, the Ottomans defeated the Serbs at the Battle of Maritsa in 1371, making vassals of the southern governors, soon thereafter, the Emperor died. As Uroš was childless and the nobility could not agree on the rightful heir, the Empire was ruled by semi-independent provincial lords, who often were in feuds with...
The Branković family descends from the Nemanjići and the Lazarevići via female line. The family rises to prominence during the time of disintegration of the Serbian Empire under the last Nemanjić. The original family domains were centred around Kosovo region, one of the heartlands of medieval Serbian state. Later members of the house extended their rule over all remaining independent regions of Serbia making them the last suzerain rulers of medieval Serbia.

Uglješa Mrnjavčević (Serbian Cyrillic: Угљеша Мрњавчевић; fl. 1346–1371), known as Jovan Uglješa (Serbian Cyrillic: Јован Угљеша), was a Serbian medieval nobleman of the Mrnjavčević family and one of the most prominent magnates of the Serbian Empire.
