Čelnik
Čelnik (Serbian Cyrillic: челник) was a high court title in the Kingdom of Serbia, Serbian Empire
Serbian Empire
and Serbian Despotate. In its early form, the holder was entrusted with the security of property belonging to the Orthodox Church from the aristocrats (compare Catholic Vidame), so the holder appeared in the role of a judge or executor of the ruler's decisions, in disputes between the church and the nobility. At the beginning of the 15th century, during the Serbian Despotate, the title of Veliki čelnik was the equivalent of count palatine and was the highest court title, with the title-holders holding great provinces, property and honours.Contents1 History1.1 List of incumbent čelniks2 Veliki čelnik 3 List of incumbent veliki čelniks 4 See also 5 References 6 SourcesHistory[edit] During the reign of King Stefan Milutin
