Montenegro is a small Balkans principality. We do not know much about the royal family yet. We plan to look into the history. An old engraving shows the six oldest children of King Nicholas in the 19th century. Among them areseveral of his daughters who were married off quite successfully into the royal families of Europe. I believe the children picture are the following. Princess Zorka married Peter Karađorđević , later King Peter I, King of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs (the original name of Yugoslavia). Princess Militza married Grand Duke Piotr Nikolaievitch of Russia and became HIH Grand Duchess Militza Nikolaievna of Russia. Princess Stana was first married to HIH Prince George Romanovsky, Prince von Leuchtenberg, and second time to Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaievitch of Russia, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Army. Princess Marija ("Maritza") was not married, died in St. Petersburg in 1885. First son, Prince Danilo. became HM King Danilo I of Montenegro. Princess Elena married HM King Emanuele III of Italy, Prince of Savoy. We are unsure what happened to the Montenegrian royal family when the Kingdom of Yugoslavia was created after World War I. We note, however, that the Montenegran royal family married into the Sebian/Yugoslav royal family. Today Montenegro is the last remaining part of Yugoslavia still associated with Serbia. Many Montenegrans want to declare independence, but the ethnic Serbs in Motenegro want to retain ties with Serbia.
