 Stefan Uroš II Milutin of Serbia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stefan Uroš II Milutin (Serbian: Стефан Урош II Милутин), (born around 1253-died in 1321), was a king of Serbia (reigned 1282–1321), and member of Nemanjić dynasty.
The peace was concluded in 1299 when Milutin kept conquered lands as dowry of Simonis, daughter of emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos.
This meant that Stefan Dečanski was to be heir to the throne in Serbia and not Dragutin's son Stefan Vladislav II.

Uros was adroit enough to maintain friendly relations with the Nicaean Empire, though the Nicaean Emperor was never quite sure of his true intentions.
Uros was dethroned by his son Dragutin, who was deeply dissatisfied with his father's distrust.
Milutin took advantage of it, mounted an attack on his nephew, defeated him, threw him in captivity and conquered Rudnik, the mining village of Lipnik, the city of Macva and, probably, Belgrade.

 [Project Rastko] THE HISTORY OF SERBIAN CULTURE - Sima Cirkovic: Rises and falls in Serbian statehood in the middle ages
Stefan Nemanja abdicated the throne, appointing his middle son, Stefan, to replace him; Stefan was the son-in-law of the Byzantine imperial family.
Due to the activities of the king's brother, Sava, the position of the church changed significantly within the Serbian state, having a bifurcated tradition: it was Roman Catholic in the towns on the Adriatic coast and in their vicinity, and it was Byzantine-Orthodox in the territory of the archbishopric of Ohrid.
Milutin conquered northern and central Macedonia (up to the town of Prosek, today known as Demir Kapija), while Dragutin was given the banate of Macva and Belgrade with its environs because he was the son-in-law and vassal of the Hungarian king.
