History

The annals of Patriarchate of Peć (Pećka Patrijarsija) mentioned Nevesinje in 1219, which is the earliest appearance of the municipality of Nevesinje in preserved historical sources.


The Nevesinje region was under the rule of different medieval lords until the end of the 15th century. The most significant ruler of Nevesinje from this period was Stefan Vuksic Kosaca, known as Herceg Stefan. The whole land Hercegovina was named after him. Stefan's lands were under the constant treat from advancing Turkish forces in the 15th century. Hercegovina, and thus Nevesinje were gradually incorporated into the Turkish Empire by the end of the 15th century.


During the period of Turkish rule Nevesinje was mostly part of Bosnian Pashaluk and was a seat of a qadi. Nevesinje was at the heart of the Great Eastern Crisis, 1875-1878 when peasants of the region rebelled against Turkish tax collectors. The rebellion soon spread to the rest of Herzegovina and to Bosnia Province and other parts of the Ottoman Empire. Neighbouring states, Serbia, Montenegro and Bulgaria got involved in the conflict which in turn pulled in great powers of the time. The conflict ended with Congress of Berlin in 1878 and the province of Bosnia and Herzegovina was placed under the administration of Austria-Hungary.
