The Mongol invasion of Serbia of 1291 was a joint invasion of the Mongols and the Bulgarian Empire into the Kingdom of Serbia. Serbia ultimately fought off the invading forces and won the war.

To ensure the uneasy peace between the Golden Horde and Serbia, King Stefan Uroš II Milutin sent his son, Stefan Dečanski, the future king of Serbia, as a hostage in the court of Nogai Khan. He remained there until Nogai's death in 1299.[1]
