In 1314, heir apparent Stephen Uroš III was exiled to Constantinople after quarrels with his father King Stephen Uroš II Milutin. In 1317, Uroš III asked Nikodim to intervene between him and his father. In 1320, King Milutin allowed Uroš III to return upon the persuasion of Nikodim. Stephen Constantine, Uroš' half-brother and heir to the throne, was crowned King upon the death of Milutin in 1321. Civil war erupted when Constantine refused to submit to Uroš III, who then invaded Zeta, and in the ensuing battle, Constantine was killed. After the victory, on January 6, 1322, Nikodim crowned Uroš King and Dušan Young King.
