Krešimir I of Croatia

Krešimir I was a King of Croatian Kingdom from 935 until his death in 945. He was a member of the House of Trpimir.

He succeeded his father Trpimir II as King. He managed during his reign, like his father, to hold Croatia as great military power. After his death his two sons, first Miroslav and later Mihajlo Krešimir II, became kings, after a long struggle for succession, during which the Caslav Klonimirovic of Serbia strengthened the border at the river of Vrbas while his Narentines took Vis and Lastovo from Croatia.
