||after the death of Serbian Tzar Dushan (1355), Volkashin - King Marko's father -occupied various positions on the territory of Macedonia. In 1365, he proclaimed himself a Tzar and thus became a ruler as much as the Tzar Urosh was Tsar of Serbia. In their State, Macedonian Orthodox Church was official Church. In Marko's monastery near Skopje (14 Cent.), "King Marko" is presented in king's clothes by the presence of St. Clement of Ohrid among the holy fathers. The intention was to emphasize not only the independence, but also the differences from the Serbian Rulers. It was shown the absence of the saints from the Nemagnich circle who had incarnated the Serbian church and historical tradition (St. Simeon, Nemagna and St. Sava). In 1369, the decisive Kosovo battle took place between the two nations: the Serbians leaded by Nemagnich dynasty on one side (Lazar Irebeglanovic, Nikola Altomanovich and the Czar Urosh) and the macedonians leaded by King Volkashin, son Marko and Tyrant Uglesha on the other . The Macedonian rulers won the battle.
