decanski was not born of any of the wedded wives of tsar Milutin, instead decanski (= Urosh III) was illegitimate, by Milutin's some early concubine. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:53, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

His full title[edit]

I think his full title was "King of all the Serbian and the coastal lands" (Kralj svih srpskih i pomorskih zemalja). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:26, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

His mother[edit]

Stefan Dečanski is not son of Bulgarian princess. He is son of Serbian noblewoman Jelena, first wife of Stefan Uroš II Milutin. Could please somebody help with cite notes. Book is Веселиновић, Андрија, Љушић, Радош Српске династије. Платонеум, Нови Сад, Београд, 2001. ISBN 86-83639-01-0 --Dalibor Đurić (talk) 19:34, 11 November 2012 (UTC)


What is the "Branivojevići"? The term is referenced without explanation in the article. The best I can guess from reading other references on the internet is that it is a group of Serbian nobility, perhaps a family based in Hum. Why is this group of particular importance? Can someone with knowledge of this area provide more explanation?--Rpclod (talk) 05:37, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Stefan Uroš III Dečanski of SerbiaStefan Dečanski – As per common name. See above section. Zoupan 05:45, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment Is there any information available on how many WP readers go to the page directly versus how many hit the redirect first? 1bandsaw (talk) 21:36, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment There are twenty (20) redirects for this page:

which makes any title choice dubious. I prefer the English Stephen Decanski. One can use Wikipedia article traffic statistics to see how many readers come in from each redirect, but the statistics are skewed by the use of redirects in other artciles, such as the use of Stefan Dečanski is about fifty articles, and the use of Stephen Decanski in only one. --Bejnar (talk) 23:22, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Comment Don't see why redirects make "any title choice dubious", and why "the statistics" are used for this move discussion. The common name is "Stefan Dečanski". Apart from the Google books hits that clearly favour "Stefan Dečanski", Google scholar has 204 hits for "Stefan Dečanski" and 14 hits for "Stephen Dečanski". I think this is as decisive as it gets.--Zoupan 07:06, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
