Sava II of Pec
He was born as Predislav. His parents were Stefan First-crowned (son of St. Simeon the Myrrh-flowing) and his queen-consort Ana Dandolo. This was Stefan's second mariage. The exact date of his birth is not known. All three of Predislav's brothers were Serbian kings: Radoslav (1228-1233), St. Vladislav (1233-1243, d. 1277) and Stefan Uroš I (1243-1276).
Following in the steps of his uncle St. Sava, Predislav renounced all his titles and took monastic vows in monastery of Hilandar. His monastic name was also "Sava." In 1254, he was elected Bishop of Hum, a region which his uncle had briefly ruled. He participated in state council in his cathedral, the Church of Saint Peter on Lim. After Archbishop Arsenije suffered stroke, Sava was elected archbishop.
