of his father's brother Belaur in Niš and later to Dubrovnik. He was later expelled from there by Stephen Dušan (Stephen Uroš IV Dušan of Serbia) under the pressure of Ivan Alexander (Ivan Alexander of Bulgaria). Ivan Stefan probably died in Naples. Kodeksi The band history begins in 1969 in Sarajevo, SFR Yugoslavia. At the time, the future leader of Bijelo dugme, Goran Bregović was the bass guitarist for the band Beštije. He was spotted by the Kodeksi (trans. ''Codexes'') vocalist Željko Bebek. As Kodeksi needed a bass guitarist, on Bebek's suggestion Bregović became the member of the band. The band's lineup consisted of Ismeta Dervoz (vocals), Edo Bogeljić (guitar (electric guitar)), Željko Bebek (rhythm guitar (electric guitar)) and vocals), Goran Bregović (bass guitar), and Luciano Paganotto (drums (drum kit)). After performing in Dubrovnik (before these performances the only female member, Ismeta Dervoz left the band) Kodeksi were hired to perform in a club in Naples. After two months the band's guitarist Edo Bogeljić returned to Sarajevo, and Bregović switched to guitar. Local Italian musician was brought in to play the bass, but after he quit too, Bebek called up old friend Zoran Redžić. Redžić in turn brought along Milić Vukašinović as replacement on drums for Paganotto who also quit in the meantime. Vukašinović brought new musical influences along the lines of what Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath were doing at the time. Additionally, he convinced the rest of the band on incorporating the new sound into their set. Within two weeks of his arrival, Kodeksi were fired from all the places they were playing. thumb 210px Qadan's siege of Olmuc. (File:Zelnahora.jpg) During the winter of 1241-1242, Kadan sacked Buda on the way to Győr. While besieging Italian mercenaries defending Székesfehérvár, Kadan was forced to withdraw his troops after an early thaw flooded the land around the town. The Mongol prince was then sent south with one tumen to search for Béla in Croatia. Kadan first sought the Hungarian king at Zagreb, which he sacked, and then pursued him into Dalmatia. While Béla hid at Trogir, Mongols under the leadership of Kadan, in March 1242 at Klis Fortress in Croatia, experienced their first European military failure, while in pursuit for the head of Béla IV of Hungary.

Now La Pasionaria came face to face with the man she had slandered. She started to apologize profusely, but Tito cut her short and said, "Do not vex yourself, Dolores, do not worry. I know very well how things worked in those days. I know it perfectly. Furthermore, believe me, I most likely would have done what you did had I been in your situation."
