Following Tomislav’s death, there were civil wars that brought much destruction and hardship to Croatia and its people. Some territories were lost. But once the situation was stabilized under a series of new kings the country was able to continue its existence on through the 10th and 11th centuries. By the end of the 11th century, the Croatian kingdom had weakened and external forces were able to make their influence felt in the country’s domestic affairs. To make the situation even worse, King Dimitar Zvonimir (1074–1089) did not leave any successors to occupy the Croatian throne.
The majority of ethnic Serbs that lived in Croatia wanted to stay in the federation with Serbia and other republics. But the majority of Croatians (who make up almost 80 percent of Croatia’s population) decided it was time for independence. These differing views quickly triggered a heated ethnic conflict. By 1995, Croatian forces had finally recaptured Serb-controlled territories and eliminated their pseudo-state called the Republic of Srbska Krajina. The war took approximately 30,000 lives and forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.
The rise of Venice helped to weaken the regional influence of Croatia and its leaders. Antagonism between Croatia and Venice, and among Croatian leaders themselves, continued for several centuries as Venice gained absolute control of the Adriatic Sea. In the first part of the 10th century Croatian leaders began to establish independent states. This was the time when the most famous Croatian ruler, Tomislav (910–928), expanded his dominance well beyond his own ethnic border. Tomislav, who belonged to the Trpimirovic dynasty (named after the duke Trpimir, 845–864, and his descendants), is an individual who remains controversial in the eyes of historians.
