The meeting between Roman Emperor Manuel I Komnenos and Grand Župan (Grand Prince) of all Serbia Stefan Nemanja, 1172 AD.

The meeting between Roman Emperor Manuel I Komnenos and Grand Župan (Grand Prince) of all Serbia Stefan Nemanja, 1172 AD.
In 1172, Roman Emperor Manuel I Komnenos had launched an expedition against Stefan Nemanja, and Nemanja's defeat seemed certain. Thus, the Grand Župan sought leave to parley and met the Emperor in Niš with his head and feet bare and a halter around his neck, and received reinstatement. However, although Nemanja bowed before Emperor Manuel and surrendered his personal sword, he was imprisoned and brought to the Imperial Capital of Constantinople to take part in a triumphal entry as a defeated barbarian. Nemanja vowed to never again attack Manuel, while the Emperor in return recognized Stefan Nemanja and his bloodline as the rightful Grand Župans of the Rascian lands.
