Michael of Bosnia (after 1243 – before 23 March 1266),[1] Duke of Bosnia from 1262 to 1266,[1] was a member of the Rurik dynasty.[2]

He was the son of Duke Rostislav of Macsó and his wife, Anna, a daughter of King Béla IV of Hungary.[1] When Duke Rostislav died in 1262, his lands were divided between his sons: Michael inherited their father’s part of Bosnia, and Béla inherited the Banate of Macsó.[3]

When Michael died, his lands were inherited by his brother.[1]
