Vladislav Jonima (Latin: Bladislaus Gonome; middle of 13th century — after 1319) was an Albanian and Serbian nobleman. A member of the Jonima family, he held areas of the Kingdom of Serbia in the regions of Doclea and northern Albania until the early 1310s. Last mentioned in contemporary documents in 1319, he was a participant of a Catholic coalition between the noblemen of the Kingdom of Albania led by Philip of Taranto against Milutin of Serbia.[5]

Life[edit]

Šufflay treats him as undoubtedly a descendant of sevast Jonima, mentioned in Angevin sources dating to 1274.[6] Oliver Jens Schmitt regards his position in Slavic state and (Slavic) name, despite his non-Slavic (Albanian) ethnicity as a sign of close relations between the nobilities of the two groups in the region.[2] In 1303 he appears present in the Serbian court.[6] His rank in the hierarchy of the Serbian Kingdom was below rank of kaznac Miroslav and čelnik Branko.[7] In 1306 he held the title of župan in the service of Serbian King Stephen Uroš II Milutin. Jonima was among the witnesses mentioned in a charter issued to Ratac by Serbian King Milutin in 1306.[8] Jonima was later is mentioned as Count of Doclea and coastal Albania.[2][9] The areas under his control appear to be related with the promotion of Catholicism by Queen Helen of Anjou.[5]

Mentioned in a papal bull of 1319,[6] Philip I, Prince of Taranto, who claimed the title Latin Emperor, had succeeded in uniting many lords in the Kingdom of Albania (barones regni Albanie) south of Scutari: William Arianit, Paul Matarango, count Vladislav Jonima, count Mentol Musachi, commander Andrew Musachi, protosebastos Theodore Musachi, protosebastos William Blenist and count Kaloyan Blenist.[10]
