Selected biography

Fresco of Stefan Uroš IV Dušan

Stefan Uroš IV Dušan Silni ("the Mighty") (Serbian: Стефан Урош IV Душан Силни, Greek: Στέφανος Ντουσάν, in English also Stephen Dushan) (c. 1308 – December 20, 1355) was king of Serbia (September 8, 1331 – April 16, 1346) and Tsar (emperor) of the Serbs and the Greeks (April 16, 1346 – December 20, 1355).

Under his rule Serbia reached its territorial peak and, as the Serbian Empire was one of the larger states in Europe at the time. Apart from significant territorial gains, in 1349 and 1354 he made and enforced Dušan's Code, a universal system of laws. He is also the only ruler from the house of Nemanjić who may not have been canonised as a saint soon after his death. Dušan was also noted as a man of gigantic proportions, and according to Papal ambassadors he was the tallest man of his time, estimated at close to seven feet tall.

His Crown is kept at the Cetinje Monastery in Montenegro.
