In the later battles against the Turks, the fortress Nutjak beneath Trilj is mentioned, as well as the master of this fortress, Žarko Dražojević (1438 - 1508), prince of Poljice.
At the end of the 15th century, the prince of Poljice Žarko Dražojević initiated the building of the fortress in order to fortify the northern border of the Poljica Principality. Žarko Dražojević proved himself to be one of the most prominent Croatian noblemen in the battles against the Ottomans. He was killed in 1508 and later buried in the Split Cathedral. Nutjak was conquered around 1513.
