    Lightbulb A grave of an unknown Croatian prince from the 8th century is discovered

    Very little is known about Croatia before the 9th century, so every earlier discovery is an archaelogical sensation.

    In the summer of 2015. a grave of an unknown prince was discovered, not far from Bojna, near the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. It became clear from the rich funeral gear that came out. Some of the other 36 found and investigated graves of the deceased on that location were richly equipped, but the grave of a prince was unique in this part of Croatia. An unknown magnate was buried with luxurious silver and golden plated spurs, gold-plated pendants, gold solid of the Byzantine Emperor Constantine V. Coprones, and golden threaded garments.

    At the end of the 20th century at the Crkvina area in Biskupija (near Knin), a prince was found, buried in the basilica of St. Mary, in the sarcophagus of Roman origin and with a medieval cover. He had almost identical funeral equipment like this one from Bojna. The only other spurs are found there in Croatia, which with their rich decoration and burial place, are fully in line with a prince grave from Bojna. And with this prince there was a pendant with a stone crystal as well as a solid of Constantine V. Because of these and similar finds it was known that the Knin area was one of the centers of the early Croatian state. The discovery of the Prince from Bojna indicates the existence of an equally strong political center in the area of today's Banovina, which opens a new chapter in the knowledge of the earliest Croatian history.

    Yes they plan to do DNA testing, they did not specify what kind of tests they plan to perform.

    I've found an article in Croatian newspapers, but now I've found a scientific paper:

    The Facebook page of that Sisak museum (that you just linked) has many photos of the displayed artifacts from this burial, posted May 6.

    Will they announce DNA/YDNA/MTDNA findings? or is that not yet underway?

    In short, Budak thinks that this prince had the same cultural and ethnic identity as Croatian princes from Dalmatia, because their grave goods are identical.
    The sentence from Constantine Porphyrogenitus' DAI which says: - "From the Croats who came to Dalmatia, a part split off and took rule of Illyricum and Pannonia. They too had an independent archon, who would maintain friendly contact, though through envoys only, with the archon of Croatia" could be reference to the country of this prince (although this sentence was disputed, because there isn't any other source which can confirm this).
    Illyricum and Pannonia probably here designate a country located north of Dalmatian Croatia which in 10th century got incorporated into Croatian kingdom.
