Vojvodina



Vojvodina is the Serbian name for the territory of Northern Serbia, consisting of the southern part of the Pannonia Plain. Throughout history it has been a part of Dacia, the Roman Empire, the Hun empire, the Avar Caganate, the Gepid Kingdom, the Byzantine Empire, Bulgaria, the kingdom of Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, Austrian Empire, Austria-Hungary, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and the Slovenes, Yugoslavia, and finally Serbia&Montenegro.

The name "Vojvodina" in the Serbian language simply means Dukedom. Its historical name was "Serbian Dukedom", but since Vojvodina is now part of Serbia, there is no need for the prefix "Serbian" anymore. The Serbian language uses two more varieties of the word Vojvodina. These varieties are Vojvodovina and Vojvodstvo, which is equivalent to the Polish word wojewodztwo (which means Province)

The area of Vojvodina has been inhabited since the Paleolithic period. Before the Roman conquest in the 1st Century BC, the region was inhabited by Illyrian, Thracian, and Celtic tribes. Most important Illyrian tribe from this region were Pannonians. Latter Roman Pannonia was named after them.

Romans have conquered this region in the first century BC. Opposing the Roman rule, Illyrian tribes started uprising in 6 AD. Leaders of this uprising were Baton and Pines. They would be the first known Vojvodinians recorded in history. Sirmium(Sremska Mitrovica) was an important Roman town. It was main city of Roman Pannonia and one of four capital cities of Roman Empire. Six Roman Emperors were born in this city or surrondings. These emperors were Romanised Illyrians by origin.

The Huns drove the Romans out of Pannonia after A.D 395. The rule of the Huns lasted little over half a century, and the region become part of Byzantine empire. Pannonia (province of Byzantine empire) existed in Srem in the 6th century and the capital city of this province was Sirmium.

During the early medieval migrations, Slavs (Severans, Abodrites, and Serbs) settled today's Vojvodina in the 6th and 7th centuries, but pockets of Romanised Illyrians remained in the area.

In the 9th Century, territory of present day Vojvodina was part of Bulgaria. Salan (Bulgarian Duke)  was ruler in territory of Backa and his capital city was Titel. Another Bulgarian duke, Glad, ruled in Banat.His residence was city Vidin  in the territory of present day Bulgaria. His descendant was Ahtum duke of Banat, the last ruler who opposed to the establishment of Hungarian kingdom.

In the 11th Century, ruler of Srem vas Sermon vassal of Bulgarian emperor Samuel. Sermon produced his own golden coins in present day Sremska Mitrovica. After Bulgarians were defeated by Byzantine Empire, Sermon was captured and killed, because he didn’t want to comply with new authorities.

The Hungarians or Magyars  arrived in the Pannoian Plain during the last decade of the 9th Century.  Hungarian rule was established in the territory of present day Vojvodina starting with 10th century. Backa came under Hungarian rule in the 10th century, after Hungarians defeated Salan. Banat came under Hungarian rule in the 11th century after the defeat of Ahtum, and Srem came under Hungarian rule in the 12th century after Kingdom of Hungary conquered it from Byzantine Empire. Before Hungarian conquest, a province of Byzantine empire named Theme Sirmium existed in the territory of Srem.

Between 1282 and 1316 Serbian King Dragutin ruled a state consisted of srem, Macva, Usora and Soli. Name of his state was: Kingdom of Srem. His capital city was Debrc (between Belgrade, and Sabac) After Dragutin died, the ruler of Kingdom of Srem become his son, king Vladislav II (1319-1325)

Though Serbs were part of aboriginal population in the territory of Vojvodina (especially in Srem), an increasing number of Serbs began settling from the 14th Century onward. By 1483 according to a Hungarian source, as much as half of the population of Vojvodina territory of the Kingdom of Hungary at the time would have been made up of Serbs.

After Turks conquered Serbia (Yes, I Admitted it ) Serbian despots ruled in parts of Vojvodina territory as vassals of Hungarian kings. Residence of Serbian despots was city Kupinik (today Kupinovo) in Srem. Here are the names of these Serbian despots: Vuk Grgurevic (1471-1485), Djordje Brankovic (1486-1496), Jovan Brankovic (1496-1502), Ivanis Berislav (1504-1514), Stevan Berislav (1520-1535), Radic Bozic (1527-1528), Pavle Bakic (1537) and Stefan Stiljanovic (1537-1540). The last three didn’t ruled in the territory of present day Vojvodina, but they had possessions in the territories of present day Romania, Hungary, and Croatia. The fact that Despots of Serbia ruled in the territory of present day Vojvodina, but also the presence of large Serbian population, are reasons because in many historical records and maps, which were written and drawn between 15th and 18th centuries, territory of present day Vojvodina was named Rascia (Raska and Serbia) and Little Raska (Little Serbia).

The Ottoman Empire took control of Vojvodina following the Battle of Mohaacs of 1526, and the fall of Banat in 1552. This turbulent period caused a massive depopulation of this region. Soon after the Battle of Mohács, leader of Serbian mercenaries, Jovan Nenad established his rule in Backa, Northern Banat, and a small part of Srem. He created an ephemeral independent state, with city Subotica as its capital. At the pitch of his power, Jovan Nenad proclaimed himself in Subotica for "Serbian Emperor". Taking advantage of the extremely confused military and political situation, the Hungarian noblemen from the region joined forces against him and defeated the Serbian troops in the summer of 1527. "Emperor" Jovan Nenad was assassinated and his state collapsed.

During the Ottoman rule, more than 90% of inhabitants of the Vojvodina region were Serbs. Serbs mostly lived in villages, while cities were populated with Muslims, among which were many Islamised Serbs. Elayet of Tamesver (Turkish province) existed in Banat after 1552), while Sandzak of Srem and Sandzak of Segedin existed in Srem and Backa. In 1594 Serbs in Banat started large uprising opposing Turkish rule. This was one of three largest Serbian uprisings in history, and the largest one before the First Serbian Uprising led by Karadjordje.

End of Ottoman rule dramatically altered the demographic character of the region. The original Serbian population was decimated. The Serbian patriarch, Arsenije III Čarnojević , fearing the revenge of the Turks, immigrated in the last decade of the 17th century to Habsburg Empire with as many as 36,000 families. The Austrian emperor promised these people religious freedom as well as the right to elect their own "vojvoda" (military governor), and incorporated much of the region where they settled, later known as Vojvodina, into the military border. Austrian Emperor also recognized Serbs as one of state nations of Austrian Empire and he recognized right of Serbs to have territorial autonomy. This right, however, was not realized before the revolution in 1848-1849.

During the Uprising of Rakoci (between 1703 and 1711), territory of present day Vojvodina was battlefield between Hungarian rebels and local Serbs, which fought on the side of Austrian Emperor. Serbs in Backa have suffered the great losses. Hungarian rebels have burned Serbian villages and many Serbs were expelled out of Backa. Darvas , the prime military commander of Hungarian rebels, which fought against Serbs in Backa, wrote: "We burned all large places of Rascia, on the both banks of rivers Danube and Tisa."

During the Austrian rule many colonists settled in the territory of present day Vojvodina. They were mainly (Catholic) Germans and Hungarians. Because of this colonisation, Serbs lost absolute ethnic majority in the region, and Vojvodina become one of ethnically most diverse regions of Europe. However, there was also some emigration from Vojvodina: after Tisa-Moris section of military frontier was abolished, Serbs from north-eastern part of Backa left from this region and immigrated to Russia(YEAH!!) in 1752, and this region was then populated with new Hungarian settlers. Especially many Hungarians come after 1867, when Hungary became autonomous part of Habsburg Empire. Serbs, however, still were single largest ethnic group in Vojvodina, until the second half of 20th century, when they become absolute majority again.

Between 16th and 19th centuries, Vojvodina was cultural centre of Serbian people. Especially important cultural centres were: Novi Sad, Sremski Karlovic and monasteries of Fruska Gora . In the first half of the 19th century, Novi Sad was largest Serbian city (In 1820 this city had about 20,000 inhabitants, of which 2/3 were Serbs). Novi Sad had an elected mayor that was alternately German or Serb. The Matica Srpska moved to that town from Budapest in 1864. The Serbian gymnasiums of Novi Sad and Sremski Karlovic were at the time considered to be among the best in the Hungarian Kingdom. Novi Sad was being called the "Serb Athens."

The Hungarian government replied by the use of force: on June 12th 1848, a war between Serbs and Hungarians started. Austria took side of Hungary at first, demanding from the Serbs to "go back to being obedient". Serbs were aided by the volunteers from Serbia. As a negative consequence of this war, was the expansion of the conservative fractions. Since the Austrian court turned against the Hungarians in the later stage of revolution, feudal and clerical circles of Vojvodina formed an alliance with Austria and became a tool of the Viennese reaction to Hungarian revolution. Serbian troops from Vojvodina then joined the Habsburg army and helped in crushing the revolution in Hungary. The forces of reaction smothered the revolution, helped by the Russian Czarism , in the summer of 1849 and in that way defeated all the national and social movements in the Habsburg monarchy.

During the second half of the 19th century the region's Hungarian, German, Serb, Croat, and Slovak farmers turned it into the most productive agricultural region of the Kingdom, and it's excellent products were exported all over Europe.

At the end of the World War I the Austro-Hungarian Empire collapsed. On November 25 in 1918 the Serbian Assembly of Novi Sad proclaimed the union of Vojvodina with the Kingdom of Serbia.

The Axis Powers occupied region between 1941 and 1944. Backa and Baranja were attached to Hungary, while Srem was attached to Independent State of Croatia. Smaller Dunavska banovina (including Banat and Sumadija) existed as part of Serbia between 1941 and 1944 and its administrative centre was Smederovo However, Banat itself was separate autonomous region ruled by German minority. Occupants have committed countless crimes against the civilian population and especially many crimes were committed against the Serbian and Jewish population (Jewish population of Vojvodina was completely exterminated, dreadful).

Vojvodina was liberated in 1944 and region was politicaly restored (In 1945) as a province of Serbia (incorporating Srem, Banat, and Backa). Instead of previous name (Dunavska Banovina), region officially gains its historical name: Vojvodina, and its capital city remained Novi Sad.

It was only nominally autonomous at first but enjoyed extensive rights of self-rule under the 1974 constitution, which also gave it voting rights equivalent to Serbia itself on the country's collective presidency.

Under the rule of Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic, Vojvodina and Kosovo lost most of their autonomy in September 1990. The outbreak of the Yugoslav wars contributed to the increase of ethnic tensions, with many refugee Serbs who were driven out from Croatia and Bosnia being resettled in Vojvodina.

The fall of Milošević in 200 created a new climate for reform in Vojvodina, with the province's ethnic minorities strongly supporting the new democratic government in Belgrade. Following talks between the parties, the province's autonomy was partially restored by the omnibus law in 2002. Vojvodina's new flag was also introduced in 2004.

Some Facts:

Official Languages: Serbian, Hungarian, Slovak, Romanian, Croatian, and Rusyn.

Capital: Novi Sad

Ethnic groups: Serbs 65.05%
                      Hungarians 14.28%
                     Slovaks 2.79%
                     Croatians: 2.78%
                     Others 15.1%

It's much greater than Medieval, I think it's fine here...

But I think that your approach to Vojvodina's history is a little strange. Vojvodina has not existed before Titoist Yugoslavia. It was mostly divided in about three territories:
  • Banat of Temesvar/Timisoara (now mostly Rumanian)
  • Syrmia (between Danub and Sava - Srem)
  • Backa or Voivodina of Serbia, eventually an integral part of Hungary
You make comments like if they would affecting to all the territory of modern Vojvodina, when they actually only affect parts of it.


This map gives a better idea of the 3 parts that make up modern Vojvodina.

Politicaly Vojvodina was astablished with Maria Teresia as i know my history,before that and after(except 1974-1990) it did not exsist.
There is a saying in Serbian -(Sve damo,Kosovo ne damo.......a Vojvodinu ni za zivu glavu).....We will give all but never Kosovo...........Vojvodina while our head is on our shoulders).
Autonomy is necesary,not in means of minority rights but the mayority that lives in Vojvodina-workers,peasents,hard working people.
I just hope it becoms a EU region soon,this is indurable.
And now the hatred,hm hm:
What is Vojvodina without autonomy?A part of Serbia right.
What is Serbia with Vojvodina as an region with autonomy?Just a poor eastern Europian state.Maybe harsh but in my opinion true.
Yeah, try making bread with berry-fruits.
Who the hell am i kidding- Vojvodina never again.All it has now is its history.

Ah, more lies from the Serbian imperialist Jay...

The truth is that Serbian presence in Vojvodina dates only as far as the 18. century. Serbs became a majority only after WWII, when all the local Germans and a lot of Hugarians, Romanian and Croats were expelled and replaced with Serbs from central Serbia.

Vojvodina played a big part in the balanse of blood thirsty feelings during there centuries and if that is the only thing that Vojvodinians did then i am proud of that,but beleve me, it did much more.
Sufering the injustice for many years these people have still so much to ofer.
It is well known that it is a tolerant region.
And Vojvodina is not olny serbian but croatian also and every country that has some people in it.It is a small Europe-most people dont know that.
Dont try to clame it yours if you arent a Vojvodinian but say it is yours if you share these feelings of understanding and if you beleve in hard work.

To make things clearer Vojvodina was recovered from the Turks at the end of the seventeenth century, and was reunited to a liberated Hungary under Habsburg rule. Vojvodina was the chief area of settlement of refugee Serbs fleeing across Danube in front of the advancing Ottomans. Although the very same name of the province derives from the promise of Emperor Leopold I that the immigrant Serbs would be given the right to elect their own vojvoda or Duke, Habsburgs did not honour this pledge, and the area was incorporated in the military frontier under direct Habsburg control. In 1691, during one of the many episodes in the interminable struggle between Austria and Turkey for control of the balkans the patriarch Arse III, fearful of Turkish reprisals following an abortive Austrian advance into Serbia, organised a mass migration of Serbs (more than 30,000 families) to follow the retreating Austrians back across the Danube where they joined their compatriots in Vojvodina. .

One fact about Vojvodina- before Maria Teresia(holly be thy name,..lol) Vojvodina had 1 inhabitant per 100 km square.It was all swamps and not a realy friendly place to live in. Then came Serbs and Hungarians and Germans and Slovaks and Croats........and made it paradise.

As far as I know the first Serbian immigrants appeared in the XV. century in the so-called Lower Parts of Hungary. I do not know there later fate, but you are right a large wave of Serb settlers arrived to modern Vojvodina during the rule of Mary Theresa.
