In the ‘Life of Queen Helen’ is a narrative source describing the reign of Queen Helen and those of her sons, Milutin and Dragutin, in the late medieval Balkans. The text functions as an encomium to the late queen and is translated visually in the iconographic programmes of monastic churches founded by the Nemanjid princes. This paper will discuss the iconographic and literary themes of concord and reconciliation and their relevance to the dynastic integrity of the Nemanjid kingdom.
