Brda


BRDA

Region now in central Montenegro, which in the 18th century lay east and northeast of the Prince-Bishopric of Montenegro, though its tribal chieftains usually cooperated with the Prince-Bishop.

After the Montenegrins had trounced the Ottomans in battle in 1796, the Prince-Bishop added Brda to Montenegro.   This was recognised when the Ottoman government affirmed Montenegrin independence in 1799.
