Serbian principality under Dervan, as part of Samo's realm in 631.

Dervan or Derwan (Latin: Dervanus, Serbian: Drvan or Drven, Дрван) was an early prince of the Sorbs and Serbs[1] (fl. 631–636).[1]

He is mentioned by Fredegar in his Latin chronicle as dux gente Surbiorum que ex genere Sclavinorum:[2] "ruler of the people of the Serbs (Sorb autonym: Serby, Serb autonym: Srbi) from the nation of the Slavs".[3] He is the first ruler of the tribe mentioned by name. Fredegar records him being subordinate to the Franks for a long time and then joining the Slavic union of Samo. After the defeat of the Frankish king Dagobert I by the Slavic king Samo near Wogastisburg in 631 or 632, Dervan declared independence from the Franks and "placed himself and his people under the rule of Samo".[4]

Dervan joined Samo in his subsequent wars against the Franks. Further reports of Fredegar imply that Dervan and his people lived to the east of the Saxon Saale. The reference to Dervan in 631/632 is also the first written confirmation of the presence of Slavs north of the Ore Mountains.

He was fighting against Thuringia 631-634 and Dervan was finally defeated by duke Randulf, governor of Thuringia.(636)
