Montenegro History

Montenegro's native name, Crna Gora, is mentioned for the first time in 1276 by Serbian King Stefan Uro I in his edicts to the Serbian Orthodox Zeta Episcopate seat at the Vranjina island in Lake Skadar. The origin of the term lies in the Slavic reference to excessively mountainous regions, often emerging in the medieval Serbian realm. Mentioned afterwards in most House of Nemanji's edicts and in subsequent Venetian sources in the 13th and 14th centuries, signifying the area of the Upper Zeta, the name stabilized itself for a Principality in the second half of the 15th century under Lord Ivan Crnojevi, mostly confounding erroneously the term with the dynasty's name, which both have similar roots. The region itself became remembered as Old Montenegro as by the 19th century the The Highlands were added to the state, and Montenegro further increased its size several times by the 20th century during wars against the Ottomans, expanding its name to and annexing Old Herzegovina and parts of Old Serbia, most notably Metohija and southern Rashka. The state changed little to modern day reference, losing Metohija and gaining the Bay of Kotor. The name of the region gave the name to its people, the Montenegrins."

The country's name in most Western European languages, including English, reflects an adoption of the Venetian term monte negro, meaning lack mountain"

which probably dates back to the era of Venetian hegemony over the area in the Middle Ages. Other languages

particularly nearby ones

use their own direct translation of the term ""black mountain"". Names from further afield include Russian:
