Tomislav Karadjordjevic
Birth: Jan. 19, 1928
Death: Jul. 12, 2000

Prince of Yugoslavia. He was the second son of King Aleksandar of Yugoslavia and the brother of King Petar II, who was Yugoslavia's last monarch. Tomislav followed in his brother's footsteps and came to England in 1936., for his education, going to Oundle and then on to Clare College, Cambridge. In November 1945, Tito established a communist regime in Yugoslavia and abolished the monarchy. He subsequently banned the Royal Family from returning to the country. Prince Tomislav bought himself a farm in West Sussex where he worked hard to become a successful apple grower. In these years, he was a stateless person, relying on the UN for a passport. In West Sussex, Prince Tomislav dedicated himself to a number of charitable causes, notably St John Ambulance, of which he became County Commander. He strongly supported the Serbian Orthodox Church in England and aided the Yugoslav community. In 1991 Prince Tomislav was at last able to return to the land of his birth, and was permitted by the Yugoslav Government to return and live at King Alexander I's villa in Oplenac. (bio by: Jelena)
