Excellent News from Montenegro!

In 2011 Montenegro recognized an official role for the former Royal house of Petrović-Njegoš in Montenegro: to promote Montenegrin identity, culture and traditions through cultural, humanitarian and other non-political activities. Crown Prince Nicholas II of Montenegro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


It seems that the little known Nicholas II has achieved what other royalty can only dream of.

On 12 July the Montenegrin parliament adopted a new law that rehabilitates the family name, it creates a foundation with 4.3 million euros for the royal family, it gives a monthly income for the Prince and it gives them property in Montenegro. Most important of all, he becomes an official representative of the government with full State protocol.


Will Montenegro become the 11th. monarchy of Europe?

Nobody has spoken about a restoration of Monarchy at Cetinje/Podgorita yet.

To me, it reads that it IS now the 11th. What needs to make it "official"...a coronation?...recognition by other countries?

Montenegro royals satisifed with new law
29 Jul 2011

Montenegro's Crown Prince Nikola II Petrovic says he is "entirely satisfied" with a law rehabilitating his family, which was dethroned in 1918.

Petrovic's legal representative in Montenegro, Tania Turquin Spicanovic, said Friday the prince does not expect the tiny Adriatic nation to restore the monarchy, and only wants to see the new law "consistently applied."

Is is rather interesting the way the Royal Family sees a possible restoration or not.

Absolutely. Montenegro still is a republic but it seems that in the next decade it will formally become a Kingdom.
This is a low profile family from France that has been returning to Montenegro, learning the language and finally settling down there with all sorts of constitutional recognition.

The parliament could've simply made an official historical homage to the family and restore their property, but now they have given at lot more to the Prince, his son, daughter in law and granddaughter. So the political establishment wants them and the family is interested, I don't see why not.

I think they've been very cautious and discreet and they are not going to change that. In order to have a restoration there must be an ammedment or a totally new constitution with referendum by the people, etc... It could take a while. But, I can't imagine the parliament and the president giving all that (status, money, property, a new home, etc...) without the prospect of a full restoration.
I am just speculating, but sooner or later either the president or the prince will have to go, what's the point of paying 2 salaries?

It is not said the politicians, many of them of left wing parties, will want a restoration of monarchy.

I can't imagine the state going through all this trouble to not eventually restore the monarchy. What point is there in doing all this if they weren't planning on retoring the monarchy? As a previous poster said, the parliament could have simply made an historical homage to the family and left it at that, but instead they gave the family full state protocol. Sounds to me that at some point there may be a restoration.

Even in Romania they gave an official residence to King Mihai I, a pension and some official duties in the last years but Monarchy was not restored (at least not yet).In Montenegro maybe the restoration is not wanted by the authorities.

Fair enough, but the Petrović Njegoš are closer to the Liechtensteins than to the Românieis. What I mean is that the RF of Montenegro has been a vital part of the small country from the late 17th century until the beginning of the past century. From the old Prince-Bishops until King Nicholas was ousted in 1916 by Austria-Hungary. Unlike Romania, this family is an ancient local family and Montenegro's history is the Petrović Njegoš family history.

90 years later in 2006, Montenegro became independent again in a referendum in which 56% voted for independence. I believe this country needs to enhance its independence, identity and visibility and the RF can help a lot.

I am reasonably optimistic

The government may assing to the so-called Prince Nikola II or other members of the former Royal House some official work/duty/task, when it is needed and only then they should enjoy the full state protocol. Its not like they were all given equal status with, lets say for example, the Windsors, because they are not like them, full dynastic members of a rulling family. Nikola II may not represent the state of Montenegro or its government whenever and wherver he wants, but only when the Montenegrin republican authorities ask him to do so. He will enjoy then full State protocol as he will be the offiicial representative of the Gov., but it will be all strictly limited to the assignment itself an nothing more.
The Prince did his first and so far only job in this way, when he represented the Gov. at the mourning for the late Otto von Habsburg.

The new law recognises the Royal House's role in Montenegro's history and its essential part and role in its heritage and identity. It is quite reasonable move from the rulling party, to extend the newly-independent country's foundations with a large and quite important part of its history. Additionally, the former Royals may also be good ambassadors for the Montenegro's case internationally, as they are in a privilleged position some way, because of their past and natural links to other European royals.

But I dont think they (those who passed the law) really think on restoring the monarchy. By these new rules, they just ackonwledged something that could not be ignored any longer and on the contrary, may be positive for the country in its republican body. And finally and most importantly, they hushed Nikola II and his family, whose relations with the Montenegrin officials can be no longer agressive and demanding on the case of the restoration. Since now, they are part of the establishment, an attractive public relations element in the country's foreign policy.

The future will give us the answer but the royal Family must speak the language very well and live in the country.

The Royal Families of Serbia and Montengro do not seem very close:

Has anyone any better understanding of the Crown Prince's new role? From what I've been reading, he's now returned to Montenegro, lives in the royal palace and has a government allowance with a role defined in the constitution but he isn't King. Can anyone tell us more?

Prince Nikola recently paid a visit to the town of Danilovgrad, where he had a working meeting with its mayor, Branislav Djuranovic. The Prince said that he will be moving to Montenegro at the beginning of 2012. Also, it was confirmed that the Petrovic-Njegos Foundation is currently in the process of being established, and its registration should be complete by November.
