Tadić brotherhood in Piva[edit]

See also: Piva (tribe)

In Piva, a historical tribe of Old Herzegovina (now western Montenegro), there was a brotherhood (bratstvo) named Tadić. This brotherhood was one of the largest and oldest brotherhoods of Piva.[1] Blagojević 1971 recorded 45 houses of Tadić in Piva.[1] They have for long lived in Smriječno (in Plužine), where they are mainly concentrated, while one or two houses exist in Potprisoje, Donja Brezna and Stabna, which they settled later.[2] The brotherhood has the slava (patron saint veneration) of Jovanjdan (John the Baptist).[3] It belongs to the family tree of the old brotherhood of Branilović,[3] one of two family trees in Piva from which many Pivan families descend from according to tradition;[4] the Branilović either left or was absorbed by other families.[5] A knez Jovan Tadić is mentioned in a 1673 document from the Piva Monastery, as one of the witnesses regarding the bequest of Bare on Jezerce to the monastery.[3] According to one story, 17th-century hajduk Bajo Pivljanin's mother was a Tadić.[6] Families descending from the brotherhood are widespread in former Yugoslavia. Former President of Serbia, Boris Tadić, is a descendant of the brotherhood.[7]
