Sutjeska Rodoslovlje

The "great forgery" of the Ohmućević Family Tree, dating from the 16th century, which, according to some historians, marks the beginning of Illyrian heraldry. The document was written on a sheet of paper which was attached – rather significantly – to the back of a 15th c. painting by Lovro Dobričević, depicting the Bosnian king in the persona of a donor. Although the year 1482 is marked on the document, it is believed that it was ordered by Petar (Ivelja) Ohmućević in the late 16th century, to convince the authorities of the aristocratic origin of his family, tying them to some important individuals and families in the Balkans.
