Sažetak This paper will review the historical facts about Polimlje
(Middle and Lower) at the time of Herzog Stjepan Vukcic
Kosaca. The term Polimlje refers to the space of medieval
parishes: Black Stone (the territory of the municipality of
Prijepolje, Serbia) and Dabra (includes the municipality
of Priboj in Serbia and Rudo in Bosnia and Herzegovina).
The most important document about the settlements and
fortresses of this area is the Charter of Herzog Stjepan
Vukcic Kosaca which was twice released by Aragon and
Naples King Alfonso V of Aragon (1444, 1454) and one
by German "Roman" Emperor Friedrich III of Habsburg
(1448). According to the plans of towns in these charters,
the defense system of the Herzog Stjepan's area and all
fortified towns with military crews which were protecting
important roads and passes in the Herzog's authority can
be seen. A special review is given to towns and fortresses:
Milesevac, Kovin, Ostrik, Klek, Severin and Hrsovac.
Based on archival documents, diplomatic materials,
and relevant historical literature we show the boundary
between Kosaca and despotate. In October 1448, Sjepan
takes the title of Herzog. In the charter dated 6 April 1449,
especially prominent is the cult of Saint Sava. The Herzog
emphasized through Mileseva monastery (with the relics
of Saint Sava) his countries' relationship with the old Serbian
state and dynasty of Nemanjic. The title was showing
Saint Sava as protector of Kosaca and their possessions.
After this title 'Herzog' the country was named Herzegovina,
and that name has been preserved until today.
Prijepolje in Polimlje had a special role in the caravan
traffic: it became the most important commercial and
economic center. According to the dynamics of the station
wagon ride in Polimlje there were two groups, the first
included those that were active at the end of XIV and the
first two decades of the XV century: Bukovica, the church
of St. Nicola in Banja, Ivanje, Ravno and the church Mili.
The second group included Breza and Drenova that have
reached their peaks in the 20-ies and 30-ies of the XV century.
In the early summer of 1465 the vicar of Sultan Isa
Beg Ishakovic began with the conquest of Herzegovina.
On this occasion Prijepolje, Milesevac and Lower Polimlje
