They apparently rose in revolt against the Slavic invaders but were put down by Bosnian chieftains. In 695 they attempted to interfere in domestic Ragusan issues but were repulsed again and submitted to the local Slavic leaders.''(13)

Interesting that the Dukagjinis family was founded by a Norman noble that settled there with his people after the crusades.
