Duke Ljudevit (810-823)

Ljudevit governed thereby for a certain time the area from the Sava source to the Danube. Owing to its stout-hearted and courageous rebellion against Frankish rulers, who tortured the Croatian people, Ljudevit shook the large realm of Franconia. With Ljudevits death, which was murdered on initiative of Franks, failed not only the first large fight of the South Slavs for independence and liberty, but probably also the attempt of the establishment of a first Croatian state.
Duke Domagoj (864-876)

Its fame and high reputation owed Domagoj of its strong war fleet - thus he had a saying in the policy both sides the Adriatic Sea. Pope John V referred to Domagoj in letters as "famous ruler of all Croats". Because of its cruelty in the fight the Arabs and Venetians called it "pessimus Sclavorum dux"/"The worst duke of Slavs”. In its fleet were also ships from Dubrovnik, and thus this federation is the first reliable connection Dubrovnik’s with that later people and national territory.
Duke Branimir (879-892)
Branimir was a first ruler of Croatia who achieved a political independence. During the solemn divine service in S. Peter’s church in Rome in 879, Pope John VIII gave his blessing to the duke and the whole Croatian people, about which he informed Branimir in his letters. The Pope called him "dux croatorum", which suggests the European acknowledgment of a kingdom of the Croats. Apart from the independence its rule brought strength to the Croatian language in the church service. Branimir became the guiding figure of the Croatian people and the effective instrument in the fight of Croatian and at all slavenian consciousness against Latin and any foreign influence.
Duke Tomislav (910-928)
Tomislav defended the Croatian Principality of Dalmatia against the attacks Hungarian robbers. At the same time it extended however its rule to the Pannonian areas of Croatia. For the first time Croatian countries joined in a one state - of the Adria up to the Drava, of the Raša in Istria to Syrmia. Tomislav became the first king of Croatia. Pope Johannes X addressed it in a letter as “Rex Croatorum”. Croatia covered at that time 119,823 km². Tomislav developed an armed force, which counted 100,000 foot soldiers, 60,000 riders, 80 large (sagins) and 100 smaller (kondurs) warships. Tomislav was celebrated as a grounder of the Croatian kingdom, to which it succeeded to expand the realm border up to the Drava. He is considered as a defender of the Croatian people against Hungarian and Bulgarian attacks.
