Serbian Language History

The first official establishment of historical significance in modern day Serbia occurred during the 6th century BC. During this period, ethnic Serbs founded a settlement in the mountainous regions of the Balkan Peninsula. The Ancient Roman Empire, during one of its many conquests, traveled to Central Europe and began to colonize parts of Serbia. Throughout the expansion of the Roman Empire in the 2nd century BC, Serbian lands continued to experience Roman invasion and were subsequently taken under the rule of the Romans. Centuries later, still under the Roman authority, the Byzantine Empire ruled over Serbian territories from the 6th to 13th centuries. Migrating Slavic tribes came and settled into Serbia under a period of Byzantine rule which further expanded the Roman power.

The following Serbian period is scattered with a series of wars between many elite Serbian families that fought for centuries attempting to gain power. In the 8th and 9th centuries, the first Serbian monarchy was established under the rule of Prince Višeslav. The first Serbian Prince is remembered for unifying the Serbian territory and expanding the power of the Serbian monarchy. Following the series of wars that usually fought among dualling families was the Nemanjić dynasty over the land of Raska.

Raska is known as the first region that continued to develop into the current Serbian nation. Raska was established in the 12th century and grew over the following two centuries as the Serbian empire began to expand its borders. The state of Raska was eventually taken over towards the end of the Middle Ages as the Ottoman Empire moved west and invaded several territories in eastern and central Europe. The Ottoman Empire reigned over Serbia for nearly 500 hundred years while neighboring states attempted to overthrow the Ottoman Turks. Eventually after centuries of turmoil in the region, the Serbian state declared its independence from the Ottoman Empire in the beginning of the 19th century. Serbian is written using two different alphabets, the Cyrillic alphabet and the Latin alphabet.
