Danilo Petrovic-Njegos, II
Birth: May 25, 1826
Death: Aug. 1, 1860

Prince. He was the first Montenegrin secular Prince who did not also hold the ecclesiastical position of the Vladika. So Danilo's rule paved the way for Montenegro to become a kingdom under Danilo's successor Prince (later King) Nikola I Petrovic.In military affairs, he was a capable strategist and commander. He lead Montenegrins in major military victories. In 1858, he won a crucial battle against the Turks at Grahovo.In foreign affairs, he fought Turkey to consolidate and enlarge the territory of his state. He also looked to Russia for moral and military support, while trying to maintain good relations with Austria. And he courted France, whose culture and language he enjoyed.Danilo was assassinated in August 1860 as he was boarding a ship at the port of Kotor. The motive for the assassination was the personal revenge of Todor Kadic, from the Bjelopavlici tribe, over Danilo's mistreatment of Kadic's family. He ruled from 1851 to 1860. (bio by: Jelena)
