The Unknown Archon (Serbian: непознати архонт/nepoznati arhont, непознати кнез/nepoznati knez)[1] or Serb Archon (архонт Србин/arhont Srbin)[2] refers to the Serbian prince who led the Serbs from their homeland to settle in the Balkans during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Heraclius (610–641), as mentioned in Emperor Constantine VII's De Administrando Imperio (950s). The work states that he was the progenitor of the first Serbian dynasty (known as the Vlastimirović), and that he died before the settlement of the Bulgars (680).[3] Serbian historiography commonly treats him as the first Serbian ruler.

Studies[edit]

According to German historian Ludwig Albrecht Gebhardi (1735–1802), the Serb archon was a son of Dervan, who was the Duke (dux) of the Surbi, east of the Saale.[6] This theory was supported by Miloš Milojević,[7] and Relja Novaković included the possibility that they were relatives in his work.[8]
