Katharina Kotromanić was born circa 1336 to Stephen II of Bosnia (1292-1353) and Elizabeth of Kuyavia (c1317-aft1345) and died circa 1396 of unspecified causes. Notable ancestors include Charlemagne (747-814), Alfred the Great (849-899), Hugh Capet (c940-996). Ancestors are from the Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, the Byzantine Empire, Sweden, Belarus.

Catherine of Bosnia (Bosnian: Katarina Kotromanić; Slovenian: Katarina Celjska-Kotromanićka) was a Bosnian noblewoman. She was Countess of Cilli by her marriage to Hermann I, Count of Cilli, and a member of the House of Kotromanić by birth.

Family

It is known that Catherine was of Bosnian origins, but her parentage is disputed. Some [1] believes that Catherine was the daughter of Vladislav Kotromanić and his wife Jelena Šubić. Others [2] believe she was the second daughter of Stephen II, Ban of Bosnia and his third wife Elizabeth of Kuyavia. If Catherine was a daughter of Stephen, she is the sister of Queen Elizabeth of Hungary; if she was a daughter of Vladislav, she was sister of King Tvrtko I of Bosnia.

Catherine's parentage is not clear because there is no evidence to link Catherine to either of the couples.[3]

Marriage

Catherine was married in 1361 to Hermann I, Count of Cilli. The couple were married for twenty-three years and had at least two children:

  1. Johann of Cilli, died young
  2. Hermann II, Count of Cilli, married Countess Anna of Schaunberg and became father of Holy Roman Empress Barbara.

There is a famous coin with Catherine's image which confirms that Catherine died in the 15th century.[4]
