List of Chetnik voivodes

This is a list of Chetnik voivodes. Voivode[1] (/ˈvɔɪˌvd/) (Old Slavic, literally "war-leader" or "war-lord") is a Slavic as well as Romanian title that originally denoted the principal commander of a military force. It derives from the word vojevoda, which in early Slavic meant the bellidux, i.e. the military commander of an area, but it usually had a greater meaning. Among the first modern-day voivodes was Kole Rašić, a late 19th-century Serb revolutionary and guerrilla fighter, who led a cheta of 300 men between Niš and Leskovac in Ottoman areas during the Serbo-Turkish War (1876–1878). The others were Rista Cvetković-Božinče, Čerkez Ilija, Čakr-paša, and Spiro Crne. Jovan Hadži-Vasiljević, who knew Spiro Crne personally, wrote and published his biography, Spiro Crne Golemdžiojski, in 1933.
