Ivan Kosančić

Recommended Posts

I am looking for information about Ivan Kosančić. I can't find any reliable information about this supposed hero of the Battle of Kosovo in 1389. Did he even exist as a historical person or is he a creation of epic poetry?

Sorry for non-militaria topic! :)

Ivan Kosancic is a historical person, medieval Serbian knight and nobleman who died in battle of Kosovo with Turks in 1389. He was from  Gornje Toplice, Kosanica river area , near Kursumlija. He was son of Ognjen Kosancic, nobleman and knight from the personal guard of Emperor Dusan Silni. He was recognized as one of the best  swordsman (mačevalac) in Serbian army of that time. He was very famous for his style, fighting with two swords at the same time ,  the long one and short  sword.

Thanks for the reply!

That's the exact info I've found on wikipedia but I couldn't find a reliable source that confirms that info.
