Miroslav (c.945 - 959)

The 940s and 950s marked a period of turbulence. King Kresimir's death in 945 left a power vacuum and led to conflict within the Kingdom. From c.945, Miroslav ruled concurrently with Mihajlo Kresimir II and Jelena, until 959, when Governor (Ban) Pribina assassinated him.

Very few written sources (domestic or foreign) survived Miroslav's rule.

Mihajlo Kresimir II continued to rule Croatia together with his wife, Queen Jelena.
