Historical early area of Donji Kraji, after Mrgić- Radojčić (2002)[1]

Donji Kraji ("Lower Regions" or "Lower Ends") or Olfeld (In Hungarian), known in Latin as Partes inferiores ("Lower Parts"), was a small medieval region in present-day northwestern Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the southwestern size of Bosanska Krajina.

Name and geography[change | change source]

At first, Donji Kraji referred to a region around Ključ on the Sana.[2] From the 13th century on, the region was more often called Donji kraji Slavonije than Donji kraji Bosne or Donji kraji Bosanski.[2] The territory of Donji Kraji in the 13th century included the parishes: Uskoplje, Pliva, Luka, Vrbas, Zemljanik (Resnik), Vrbanja, Tribava (Trijebovo), Mel, Lušci and Banjica. During the reign of Hrvoje, Donji Kraji merged with Sana, Glaž, Vrbas (which has since been lost), and briefly Dubica.
