Božidarević coat of arms

The Božidarević (known as Bosdari in Italian) was a noble family (patrician) of the city of Dubrovnik, dating from the Republic of Ragusa.

History[edit]

In 1450 the Božidarević family participated in the defense of Habsburg Croatia against the Ottoman Empire. Vlaho Božidarević (*c.1635), son of Miho Božidarević, was admitted to the council of Dubrovnik on 5 November 1666, who contributed with 5,000 ducats to the Republic treasury. On 30 July 1667 Božidar Božidarević was admitted to the council of Ragusa as a token of gratitude for community service in the period after the earthquake.

Bosdari of Ancona[edit]

The brother of Vlaho, Frano, moved to Ancona, founding the Ancona branch of the family with the name Bosdari. An Imperial Diploma of 4 July 1753 created the Bosdari of Ancona nobles. The family later moved to Bologna.
