SERBIA vs SERBS[edit]

Why did you undo my changes concerning Tvrtko I, even though my sources were varied, international and unbiased, but you still removed them without a question. I wrote that he was the King of Serbs and Bosnia, and you changed it back to King of Bosnia and Serbia, claiming that it was cleared in the main body of the text. But the problem is that the title King of Serbia is entirely incorrect, and therefore, shouldn't even be on the page. I mean, the LAND/STATE and NATION are different things. Tvrtko was not the ruler of Serbia, because there was NO SERBIA in that particular time period, ever since the death of Tsar Urosh in 1371! There were several petty states ruled by Serbs (for example, Knez Lazar's Moravian state, Đurađ's Zeta, Marko Kraljević's land, Vuk Branković's state, Konstantin Dragaš's land, etc.). That's why, when Tvrtko proclaimed himself King, he added of the Serbs in his title, because it encompasses the people, whether they live in Bosnia, Zeta, Macedonia, Moravska, or any other petty state. Here's an example... when Tsar Dušan proclaimed himself the Emperor/Tsar, his full title was Emperor of Serbs and Greeks. Why Greeks and not Rhomeia or Roman Empire, as was the name of the Greek country? Simple - because he didn't conquer the WHOLE Greek state. But since Dušan's empire had a lot of Greeks in it (from conquered territories), it was logical for him to add of the Greeks to his title. Same thing with Tvrtko - he could claim the title of the Serbs but not of Serbia, since he didn't rule over all the Serbian states.

A question[edit]

Hi Surtsicna,

do you have any interest in Bosnian or ex-Yugoslav history other than medieval? I might need your help with an imminent issue. Praxis Icosahedron ϡ (TALK) 11:05, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi! Yes, I do occasionally edit modern history articles. Surtsicna (talk) 19:31, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Re: Aiko[edit]

Sole reason I reverted you is because I saw "Crown Prince Naruto" and immediately assumed you were a troll rofl. Didn't know you were just trying to shorten his title. --Booyahhayoob (talk) 07:33, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

I apologize, I have no idea how I managed to shorten the name too. I have never read the manga :D Surtsicna (talk) 10:33, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
