Summary/Abstract: In the sources from the late 14th and mid-15th centuries, Nekudim is mentioned as the fort, settlement, and residence of Serb rulers, Despots Stefan Lazarević and Đurađ Branković. The earliest and hitherto unknown information about the Nikodim fort (castrum Nicodem) comes from a 1389 Charter of the Hungarian King Zsigmond. Nekudim was located near the village of Pridvorice, Southwest of Smederevska Palanka, and during the reign of the despots was the center of the military-administrative county (Nekudim's «vlast»). Following the Ottoman conquest of Serbia in 1459, the Nekudim nahia was formed, while the settlement Nekudim itself was a smallish village — in 1476, it consisted of 12 houses.
