Stefan Nemanja

   Ruler of Serbia (q.v.) from ca. 1168-1196; founder of the Nemanja (q.v.) dynasty of Serbia, which ruled Serbia to 1371. His declaration of independence faltered before an invasion of Raska by Manuel I Komnenos (qq.v.) in 1172. Nevertheless, after Manuel I's death he was able to extend his territory, uniting Zeta (q.v.) with Raska. In 1168 he founded Hilandar monastery on Mount Athos (qq.v.) with the aid of Sava of Serbia (q.v.). In 1196 he retired to a monastery he founded at Studenica, taking the monastic name of Symeon.
