Yugoslavian Monarch. Last King of Yugoslavia. He became King of Yugoslavia at the age of 11 in 1934, after his father, Alexander I was assassinated in Marseilles, France. The country was ruled until 1941 by Prince Paul, a regent, when Peter began his rule. His rule was short-lived when the Nazis overran the country that same year. After the takeover, Peter went to London, England, where he headed a government in exile. In 1965 when the monarchy was abolished in Yugoslavia, he lived in the United States.
