Nothing against you but keep the facts straight. All noble families from Hercegovina were serb, except one in the western part. Hercog gave the name for Hercegovina. My family stems from Vojvoda Bogut that had his ancestral lands in northeastern Bosnia (old Serbia). You can check up, I think Ugljevik or some city around it was his seat.

Damjanci, Kosaca and Pavlovic were serbian orthodox. Pec has some excellent documents on this. And tvrtko was afaik a 50/50 mix of serb nemanjic and croat Subic. But some say he had german mercenary heritage but whatever. Nice thread. Liked the text on the Stecak, he sure lost faith in God.
