Vladislav II (c. 1270 – after 1326) was the son of Serbian King Stefan Dragutin (1276–1282, d. 1316) and Queen Catherine Árpád. Forced to hand the Serbian throne over to his younger brother Stefan Uroš II Milutin (1282–1321), Dragutin retained the royal title and the northern parts of the Serbian state. In 1284 he received Hungarian possessions south of the Sava and the Danube (Belgrade and Mačva) from his brother-in-low, Hungarian King Ladislas IV. Stefan Dragutin asserted the rights of his sons to the Serbian throne, and because of that he wagged the war with his brother Milutin for several years (1301–1312). At the same time, Dragutin married Vladislav with the daughter of the Transylvanian voivode Ladislas Kán and declared his candidacy to the Hungarian throne. Although it caused the military conflict between Charles Robert and Stefan Dragutin (1307–1313), pretensions of the Serbian prince did not seriously jeopardise the authority of the young Angevin king. Vladislav II succeeded his father as the ruler of his state (1316), most likely as the vassal of King Charles Robert. However, Vladislav was soon captured by his uncle Milutin, who occupied his territories. That led to the conflict between Milutin and Charles Robert, and after the death of the Serbian king, Vladislav II temporary re-established his state (1321–1326). Expeled by Milutin’s son King Stefan III Dečanski (1321–1331) in 1326, King Vladislav II escaped to Hungary, where he most likely died
