After gaining possession of Konavle in the first half of the fifteenth century, the Republic of Dubrovnik distributed the territory among its patricians and citizens. On the basis of records pertaining to this distribution we have been able to reconstruct the settlements, churches, roads, and ponds that existed at that time. Almost all the placenames referred to in the land registers have been preserved to this day. Hamlets were named after the local feudal landlords (vlasteličići). As a result of this partition, Vitaljina covered three tenths of the total area. The description of Vitaljina provides an insight into the borders and nature of the 1391 bipartition of Konavle. The outer borders of Vitaljina and Konavle have remained intact to the present day. This article traces the names of the Ragusan nobility and citizens who owned land in Prevlaka, Ponta Oštra and Klačina, now the southermost points of the Republic of Croatia.
