Petar Petrovic-Njegos, II
Birth: Nov. 1, 1813
Death: Oct. 19, 1851

Prince-Bishop. Metropolitan and ruler of Montenegro from 1830 to 1851. The author of the most patriotic Serb epic "The Mountain Wreath." Just before his death Petar II notified his will to Montenegrins that they had to bury him on the Mount Lovcen peak in the church dedicated to his uncle Petar I Petrovic Njegos, from where all Serb lands could be seen, but stressed if they reject to fulfil his last wish he would curse them. Petar II died in October 1851 and was buried firstly in the monastery of Cetinje because of fear that Turks could decapitate his body. His remains were transferred to his Oath Chapel on the Mount Lovcen in August 1855. However, in August 1916 Austrian occupation forces have destroyed the Chapel while Petar II Petrovic's remains were brought to the monastery of Cetinje. The Oath Chapel of Petar II was rebuilt in September 1925 by King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic. (bio by: Jelena)
