Bol Brac history
Island Brac, now Croatia, was inhabited probably in Mesolithic, but for sure in Neolithic. After, in the II. Millennium, during time of metal cultures, island Brač was inhabited by Indo-European Illyrians who were cattle-breeders.
In the 12th century, these areas were officially a part of Byzantium, but were governed by the Venetians. During the reign of the king Koloman in 1107, Brac was a part of Croatian-Hungarian state. But in 1135, Venice conquered Brac, only to fall under Byzantium again for a short while in 1170, since already in 1180, it again became a part of Croatian-Hungarian state. Andrija II., Croatian-Hungarian king donated Brac to Krk Dukes Frankopans.
