Nicholas I or Nikolaj I was the Archbishop of Ohrid in 1346.

On Easter Day, 16 April 1346, the Serbian King Stefan Dušan convoked a huge assembly at Skopje, attended by the Serbian Archbishop Joanikije II, Nikolaj I, the Bulgarian Patriarch Simeon and various religious leaders of Mount Athos.[1] The autocephalous Serbian Archbishopric was raised to the status of a Patriarchate.[2] The new Patriarch Joanikije II now solemnly crowned Dušan as "Emperor and autocrat of Serbs and Romans (Greeks)".[2]
