[ANCHOR=1]Introduction to Ragusa[ANCHORLINK=100][^][/ANCHORLINK][/ANCHOR]
The city of Ragusa/Dubrovnik was based on land and maritime trade, and in the Middle Ages it became the only eastern Adriatic city-state that rivalled Venice. Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy, the Latin/Slavic Ragusa/Dubrovnik achieved a remarkable level of development during the 14th 15th, and 16th centuries. Dubrovnik was one of the centers of the development of the Croatian language and literature, home to many notable poets, playwrights, painters, mathematicians, physicists and other scholars.

His Grace, Duke Andrija of House Sorkocevici - 1349
Exceptionally devoted to his work, but regrettably for his family he has ignored everything that does not relate to the workings of his beloved Ragusa. He sees his son Viseslav as his copy, and treasures his only daughter Anna which he would guard with all of his power. His time with them may be limited but still full of love.
