Despot Stefan Lazarevic (1389-1427)

Coin - Dinar - Despot Stefan Lazarevic

Dinar, Obv.: Cyrillic legend: DESPOT; Rev.: Christ enthroned

HISTORICAL NOTES: A capable and educated ruler, Prince Lazar's elder son was saddled with the task of maintaining the core Serbian statehood in the wake the Kosovo defeat, and reviving it after Turkey's temporary decline after the Battle of Angora. Belgrade was a fluorishing city in his time, and Stefan's walls still form the core of the fortress' Upper City.
