v · Serbian Cyrillic: Санџак Црне Горе, Montenegrin: Sandžak Crne Gore, Turkish: Karadağ Sancağı) was a province (sanjak) of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkan Peninsula only roughly corresponding to today's Montenegro. It was created from the area of the former Principality of Zeta in the Scutari Vilayet (Shkodër/Shkodra/İşkodra).

History

A big part of Principality of Zeta lost its status of independent state, though vassal of Ottoman Empire, when it was added to territory of Sanjak of Shkodra in 1499.[1] In 1514 this territory was separated from the Sanjak of Shkodra and established as separate Sanjak of Montenegro, under the rule of Skenderbeg Crnojević. When he died in 1528, the Sanjak of Montenegro was joined to the Sanjak of Shkodra, as unique administrative unit with certain degree of autonomy.[2]

The province disappeared when the Montenegrins expelled the Ottomans and their rule from Montenegro. The Montenegrins used the Great Turkish War of 1683-1699 (Also known as War of the Holy League) to expel Ottomans.
