Bosnia

The province of Bosnia was originally part of Croatia, and then became Serb-controlled until it was conquered by Byzantium in the eleventh century. Byzantine control then collapsed at the end of the century, and the Serbs became independent again. Bosnia was not so fortunate, and immediately came under the Hungarians. They governed the region through a local ban (viceroy), but Bosnia drifted in and out of Hungarian control. It finally became completely independent in 1376, just as the Ottoman Turks were conquering the Balkans.
