Summary/Abstract: Vicko Niseteo (1857 – 1939) was a descendant of a distinguished family from Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. He graduated from law school in Graz where he, several years later, also obtained his doctorate degree. In 1882, he opened his own law practice in Stari Grad. The same year marked the start of his political engagement in the national revival. In 1887, he was appointed assessor of the Municipality. He remained in office until 1892. That was the year of major disagreements within People’s Party in Stari Grad that resulted in schism, which was provoked by the establishment of the so-called Croatian group within the Diet of Dalmatia. Vicko Niseteo moved to Split in 1908, where he opened his law practice. In addition, he was a co-founder and president of the Split Bar Association. In 1917, he was appointed municipal administrator. His tenure was rather short – it lasted for a month. Vicko Niseteo died in Split in 1939.
