Vladislav (c.821 - 835)
Very few records on this prince have been preserved. Vladislav first appears after the bitter dispute between the Pannonian Croats and Dalmatian Croats over Frankish suzerainty. The latter, whom Vladislav belonged to, were closely allied with the Franks and succeeded in maintaining Frankish and Papal protection of Croatia from the rapidly expanding Byzantine Empire. These events had a significant impact on the Croats, binding them to the political, cultural, moral and spiritual values of Western Europe.
Under Vladislav, Dalmatia emerged as the nucleus of Croatian politics and remained so until the 12th century.
