Nikola Petrovic-Njegos, I
Birth: Oct. 7, 1841
Death: Mar. 1, 1921

Prince of Montenegro from 1860 to 1910 and the King from 1910 to 1918, ruled Montenegro for nearly sixty years. Military successes and glorious victories in the liberation wars between 1876 and 1878 gave him war glory and made him one of the greatest Montenegrin rulers. On the fiftieth anniversary of the reign of Prince Nikola, the National Assembly proclaimed Montenegro kingdom and Prince Nikola King. Besides successful management of state affairs the Prince i.e. King Nikola I Petrovic was also known as a man of letters. He wrote lyric poems, drama in verse and in prose. Among these the most popular are "Balkanska Carica" ("The Empress of the Balkans"), "Knjaz Arvanit" ("Prince Arvanit"), "Hajdana" ("Haidana"), "Pjesnik i vila" ("A poet and a Fairy"),"Nova kola" ("New Car"), etc. Through marriages of his daughters with European dynasties King Nikola of Montenegro was called, "The Father in law of Europe." Elena, Queen of Italy, was King Nikola's daughter. He died in Cap d’Antibes in France and was buried in San Remo, Italy. The relics of King Nikola, Queen Milena and two daughters were moved from San Remo to Cetinje in 1989. (bio by: Jelena)
