Branivojević noble family
The Branivojević (Serbian: Бранивојевићи) was a Serbian noble family that held possessions in Hum. The progenitor, Branivoje, served King Stefan Milutin (r. 1282–1321), and was given rule of Ston and Pelješac. The family had by 1325 emerged as the strongest family in Zahumlje ("Hum"). In 1326, while serving Serbian king Stefan Dečanski (r. 1321–31), Branoje Branivojević, the lord of Ston and Pelješac, was given a great two-handed sword. Probably at their highest point they ruled from Cetina river to the town of Kotor. Internal fights provided opportunity for the peripheral nobility, which would have bad consequences in the west, Hum; the Branivojević brothers entered politics in the relations with Venice, Croatian magnates and Bosnian ban. Though nominal vassals of Serbia, the Branivojević family attacked Serbian interests and other local nobles of Hum, who in 1326 turned against Serbia and the Branivojevići. The Hum nobility approached Stjepan Kotromanić II, the ban of Bosnia, who then annexed most of Hum. The Draživojevići of Nevesinje, as vassals of the Bosnian Ban, became the leading family of Hum in 1330s.
