A decisive battle (28 July 1330) in the history of the medieval Balkan Peninsula (q.v.) that laid the foundation for the rise of Serbia (q.v.) as a great power. Andronikos III Palaiologos and his Bulgarian (qq.v.) allies were defeated by Stefan Urosh III Dechanski and his son Stefan Urosh IV Dushan (qq.v.). The Serbian victory (q.v.) opened up Byzantine Macedonia (q.v.) to further Serbian expansion.
