Stefan Štiljanović (Стефан Штиљановић) was a Montenegrin Serb nobleman from the Paštrovići clan and last (unofficial) Serbian despot. He is also a saint in the Serbian Orthodox Church. Štiljanović most likely died around the year 1543, and was later buried in Šišatovac monastery in Syrmia.

Life

In 1498, Stefan Štiljanović moved from Paštrovići to Syrmia, where he had residence in the town of Morović (Štiljanović built this town in 1498). He escaped Ottoman subjugation and moved to the town of Siklós in Baranya, which he gained from Hungarian king in 1507. In 1527, he became administrator of Novigrad and Orahovica. He also gained villages of Miholjac and Glogovnica, estates in the Virovitica county and town of Valpovo, in which he had residence. Štiljanović was commander of frontiersmen in Slavonia who fought against Ottoman army. In 1543, he was defeated and captured by the Ottomans, but Murat-beg spared his life because of his famous heroism and let him go free. Leaving Slavonia, Štiljanović went to Siklos in Baranya where he died and was buried on Đuntir hill near Siklós. His mortal remains were later moved to Šišatovac monastery.

Title

Stefan Štiljanović did not officially gained the title of the Serbian despot, but according to people's tradition, he was unofficially called a despot, thus various sources claim that Štiljanović was last Serbian despot despite the fact that Pavle Bakić was the one who last gained official title of Serbian despot in 1537.
