Serbia: The House of Obrenovic

The House of Obrenović (Serbian: Обреновићи, Obrenovići, often spelled in English as Obrenovich or Obrenovitch) was a noble Serbian family that ruled Serbia from 1815 to 1842, and again from 1858 to 1903. They came to power through the leadership of their progenitor Miloš Obrenović in the Second Serbian uprising against the Ottoman Empire, which led to the formation of the Principality of Serbia. The regents tended to rule autocratically, their popularity waxing and waning over their decades in power.

The house of Obrenović, except Miloš and son Mihailo Obrenović, descends from the Serbian medieval noble house of Orlović, through the stepfather of Knjaz Miloš and of King Milan's grandfather Jevrem, as he was a member of the cadet branch of house Martinović - Orlović.

The family's rule came to an end when an underground movement Black hand throughout the military, killed the last king Aleksandar Obrenović, proximally because of his unpopular choice of a bride. After the end of their rule, a constitutional monarchy headed by the Karađorđević family took its place.

Unlike other Balkan states such as Greece, Bulgaria or Romania, Serbia did not import a member of an existing European royal family to take its throne; the Obrenović Dynasty, like its Karađorđević rival, was a "home-grown" Serbian family.

Monarchs

Miloš Obrenović I ruled from 1815 to 1839, when he abdicated, and again from 1858 until his death in 1860.

Milan Obrenović II had a brief reign between June 25, 1839 and July 8, 1839, when he died.

Mihailo Obrenović III ruled from 1839 to 1842, when he was deposed and the Obrenović family lost control of Serbia, and again ruled from 1860 to 1868, when he was assassinated.

Milan Obrenović IV succeeded Mihailo under a regency in 1868, and reigned as King Milan I from 1882 to 1889.

King Aleksandar I reigned from 1889 until he was killed 1903.

A fine piece of research there. I am however left with a question. Is there a current claimant to the house?

Yes,there are descendants of Prince Milosh's half-brother Jakov,but their family name is Jakovljevic...they are the heirs to Obrenovic fortune written in a testament of the last family member Queen Natalia,but they were not claimants to the throne of Serbia...

In Serbian Wikipedia under Obrenovići, you can see the family tree of the house, including some, but not all members of the Jakovljevic lineage.

The tree also includes George Obrenovic, an illegtimate son og King Milan, and his descendants.

Well,they are not members of the House of Obrenovic,but just related to them and mostly not included in genealogy tables...Jakov is Milosh's half-brother from his mothers side,so his paternal family and the one of Prince Milosh are not the same...the House of Obrenovic as a ruling family included Prince Milosh,his descendants,also his brother Jevrem,whose descendants were later Kings of Serbia ...

Jakovljevic family members are still alive,recognized as Heirs of Obrenovic fortune left to them as nearest cousins by the last Obrenovic family member to die,Queen Natalia...they fight at various courts for their rights as the heirs to the Obrenovic properties who were nationalized,but not as heirs to the Obrenovic claims of Crown...

In 1897, King Alexander I brought his father, Milan, back to Serbia.
In 1898, Alexander appointed Milan commander-in-chief of the Serbian army.

After leaving Belgrade, as monarch of the Yugoslav Royal House, King Petar II Karadjordjevic practically abdicated from the Yugoslav throne. He and his descendants after the breakup of Yugoslavia and the eventual return of Serbia as a state on the world stage more not the first, as a rule heritage, Serbian heirs to the throne.


Although for decades hidden that Obrenovic Royal House has a living descendants, this fact was well known. After the despicable murder of King Aleksandar I Obrenovic in a conspiracy organized by the then Prince Petar Karadjordjevic, it was said, in the same directed that Obrenovic Dynasty no longer living descendants. This story was certainly far from the truth.


Milos brother by mother Lord Jakov Obrenovic had living descendants. Because they were subjected to constant persecution, they had their original surname Obrenovic that changes in Jakovljevic, in accordance with the name of an ancestor of this branch of the Royal Houses Obrenovic. Also, Municipal Court in Gornji Milanovac confirmed the origin of the members of the Royal House. At the meeting, which was held in early July 2015. members of the Privy Council and descendants have decided that the first head of the family and the Royal House becomes H.R.H. Prince Predrag R. Jakovljevic de Obrenovic.
