History[edit]

In ancient times, Roman fortress named Burgene existed at this location. The village of Banovci existed here since the 16th century, and perhaps even before that. Another two villages, Darinovci and Tusa, were situated at this location, but both were later resettled.

According to the Ottoman census from 1566/7, most of the inhabitants of Banovci were Serbs. In 1734, the population of the village was composed of 53 houses. In 1756, population numbered 211 houses.

During the Axis occupation in World War II, 158 villagers were murdered, 52 were sent to concentration camp Sajmište, 38 were sent to forced labour, and 104 were held as war prisoners.
