Pribac Hrebeljanović (Serbian: Прибац Хребељановић (ca.1300-?) was a Serbian Logothete [1] [2] and a part of the Serbian nobility or Vlastela. He held the lands of Prilepac and Prizrenac. During the formation of the Serbian empire many Serb nobles gained higher titles and more land, however Pribac was not offered this [2]. Pribac played a big role in getting his son Lazar of Serbia to the title he bared during the fall of the Serbian empire.

Life on the Serbian throne

He was born around 1300, to an influental merchant Hrebljan, who came to prominance in the army of Stefan Milutin. Hrebljan became rich and likely became a minor noble, governor of Stalać, a wealthy and large city at the time. Pribac likely served in the army as well, as he is listet as a commander of 1000 soldiers in Dečani edict of 1330, and fought in battle of Velbazhd and capture of Prilep and Ohrid. During Dušan Nemanjić's revolts against his father Stephen of Dečani, Pribac gave Dušan full support [3][4] and was given the title of Logothete and given lands in Kosovo. Pribac wasn't a very rich noble but not a small one either and mostly organized royal feasts, weddings and meetings, and may have become royal chancellor. He died in 1362 in Uroševac, Kosovo. He had two sons, one unknown, and second was Lazar of Serbia, future Serb king who defeated the Turks at Kosovo, arguably the largest medieval battle. He is mentioned as logothete on Dušan's charter in 1343.
