Stjepan Tomaš Kotromanić


Stjepan Tomaš Kotromanić

Stjepan Tomaš Kotromanić (Cyrillic:Томашь), first name also rendered Stipan, Stefan, and Stephen, from Latin "Stephanus", ruled from 1443 to 1461 as „By the grace of God, King of the Serbs: Rascia, Bosnia, the Seaside, the Hum Land, Dalmatia, Croatia, the Western Lands, the Lower Edges, Usora, Soli and the Drina.“.

After the death of king Tvrtko II, Tomaš took the throne. He is known to have had a wife Vojača, a commoner he had promised to marry. After his enthronement, it became clear that she was unsuited to be a queen. Because of this he sought out Pope Eugene IV, who absolved the marriage and declared Tomaš to be the legitimate king of Bosnia on May 29, 1445.

Tomaš soon made peace with Stjepan Vukčić Kosača, a powerful noble ruling today's Herzegovina region. The king was now searching for a new wife, and decided to marry Vukčić's daughter Katarina Kosača-Kotromanić, which brought some political stability to the kingdom. They were married on May 26 1446 in Milodraža near Fojnica. The couple had three children: Katarina, Sigismund, and another son about whom very little is known. Stjepan Tomaš died in 1461. He was succeeded by his son from his first marriage, Stjepan Tomašević. Tomašević recognized Katarina as queen mother, and she continued to live at the royal dwellings at Bobovac and Kraljeva Sutjeska.
