Turkish rule

The Venetians fought Zeta in the 15th century, the Montenegrins under Stefan Vukcic were not able to defend themselves and all Montenegrin clans, including Bjelopavlici, were to pay taxes to Venice.

In the early 17th century, when the Ottoman Empire ruled Montenegro, Bjelopavlici consisted of 360 houses of which the majority were Montenegrin. The 800 men in arms, were commanded by Neneca Latinovic and Bratic Tomasevic.
