I recall stories of Džerzelez Alija which in Sarajevo-Višegradski folklore was a half breed who did some pretty awesome things, forged his own kingdom in lands beyond the Black Sea and was killed by a pagan in mid prayer.

I think the "zemlje iza Crnog Mora" might have been actually based on Bosniak missionaries reports, who went into North Caucasus region amongst the Vainakh people to spread Islam there.

I've never heard of this guy before, if only Bosnian folk tales and mythology was better documented and recorded throughout the years. Thanks for your input.
