They were connected sure, the Šubići at one point ruled over Bosnia, the Hrvatinići were Croatian and were one of the most powerful nobles in Bosnia, Bosnia was Catholic as was Croatia and Supetarski kartular claims that ban of Bosnia was one of the electors of the Croatian kings but that part was written centuries later and is not supported by other sources. The supposed borders of Tomislav's kingdom that reach the Drina are mostly fictions from the 19th century. However, a huge number of sources from medieval times point to the conclusion that Bosnia was a Serb land and was considered such by its rulers. The so-called "Bošnjani" was a word used to describe the nobility, not the people group. Orthodox Church was present in medieval Bosnia as well, not as much as the Catholics but it was there (for example there is evidence that Stefan Vukčić Kosača converted to Orthodoxy). Serbian sources also tell us that king Dragutin who ruled over parts of Bosnia converted the Bogomils there.I had proven that Bosnia and Croatia had common heritage at the very least.
It was.Duklja may or may not have been Serb state
Maybe, but they were descended from Serbs, not Croats.and Neretljani may have been separate peoples alltogether
Bishop Vinković writing on June 28th 1640: "Raschianos SIUE Valachos" (Rascians OR Vlachs). We clearly see that the names were used to describe the same group.As for 17th century quotes, which ones do you refer to?
Bishop Petar Domitrović writing in 1649: "cum innumerabili fere Valachicae SEU Rasciane gentis familiarum numero"
Bishop Petar Petretić writing on April 21st 1662. He mentioned a certain Martin Dubravić and said that he was "origine et natione Valacho SIUE Seruiano" Once again we see that Vlachs and the Serbs are the same thing.
Bishop Sebastijan Glavinić in 1696: "quia in partibus Croatiae mari proximis Rasciani SEU Vallachi"
