20th Century

Throughout the Balkan Wars in 1912, the majority of Kosovo was taken over by the Serbian Kingdom apart from the Dukagjini area which was taken over by the Montenegrin Kingdom.
As the Communist regime of Tito was established, Kosovo was identified and stated as an autonomous region of the country of Serbia in year 1946 and later in 1963 became an autonomous province.
Many patriots were killed end imprisoned by the Communist government and such acts were culminated by the massacre of Tivar in which around 3000-4000 Kosovars were executed by machine-guns. As the Yugoslavia constitution was passed in 1974, Kosovo was virtually self-governed. As a result, all through the 1980’s, tensions among the Serbs and Albanians in the Kosovo area arose. The autonomy of Kosovo was then severely condensed by the Serbia-wide referendum in 1989.
