The Travunian dynasty[1] was the ruling family of Travunia, that served the first Serbian Principality under the Vlastimirović dynasty. The progenitor, Beloje, was mentioned as the župan of Travunia in the chapter on the Serbs in De Administrando Imperio (DAI) of Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII (r. 945–959). Prince Vlastimir (r. 836–851) married his daughter to Beloje's son Krajina, and elevated him to the rank of archon, some time prior the Bulgar–Serb War (839–842).[2] Krajina's descendants were entitled the rule of Travunia under Serbian suzerainty.[3] They ruled the hinterland of Dubrovnik and Boka Kotorska, with seat at Trebinje.[4] No more is known of the family after DAI. In 969, Serbia was conquered by the Byzantine Empire.
