Herzegovina ( HAIRT-si-GOH-vi-nə or ; Croatian: Hercegovina, Херцеговина, [xɛ̌rtsɛɡov̞ina]) is the southern region of Bosnia and Herzegovina. While there is no official border distinguishing it from the Bosnian geographical region, it is sometimes asserted that the borders of the region are Dalmatia to the southwest, Montenegro to the east, Mount Maglić to the northeast, and Mount Ivan to the north. Measurements of the area range from 11,419 km2 (4,409 sq mi), or around 22% of the total area of the present-day country, to 12,276 km2 (4,740 sq mi), around 24% of the country. The name Herzegovina comes from the medieval duchy of Stjepan Vukčić Kosača, who took the title Herceg [duke] of Saint Sava; hence the later name Herzegovina 'land of the Herzeg'.
