The restoration of the Serbian Monarchy would be a pleasant surprise IMO. I agree, the Serbians seem to be in need of a public figure they could rely on. If this person is indeed CP Alexander, then I hope he will bring the political stability they all desire!:flowers:

But his sons should learn Serbian!

RJ TAYLER 07-28-2010 03:32 AM

If his sons do not have a firm grip on their 'mother tongue' then we only have to wait till the next generation, thereafter I foresee no problem. The same situation existed, to an extent, in Great Britain during the Hanoverian Dynasty, it took only three generations for lingua status quo to be maintained. I also would like to see the CP attain his rightful place at the apex of Serbian society as well.

CP Alexander and his Sons must learn the language and then help to restore the monarchy
I wish to see Serbia become a Kingdom again

Serbia is the European country where chances of Restoration are higher .

If this were to happen, had happened.

I was wondering where this is going? Does the Crown prince have a chance of a restoration?

David V 08-08-2010 12:19 AM

What is unique amongst the royal houses of the Balkans is that the Karadjordjevic played a vital role in Serbia's recovery of independence in the 19th century. Similarly the House of Petrovic-Njegos ruled Montenegro and preserved its independence, the House of Zogu under Zog I more or less unified and stabilised Albania.

Support for the Royal Family was strong among Serbian exiles during the Tito years.

When war erupted with the breakup of Yugoslavia, the Royals became a rallying point for many domestic opponents of the regime in Serbia. The stature of the family was raised amidst Serbia's many troubles in the years that followed, and restoration became part of some political parties' program, particularly around the time Slobodan Milosveic was deposed. Perhaps because people looked for a rallying point in time of demoralisation and discrediting of many politicians. So yes, the idea of restoration does have a degree of public support and remains part of political discourse.

Which political parties are officialy for the Restoration of Monarchy?

David V 08-20-2010 09:28 PM

At least two are explicitly monarchist, one of them currently in the government. And former foreign minister Vuk Draskovic is one of those calling for restoration.

Holland 08-23-2010 04:02 PM

Never! Ever, ever!!! Alexander is the damn nationalist and I'll never support him assuming the throne! Serbia must remain a republic.

Cory 08-27-2010 06:09 PM

Why do you consider Crown Prince Alexander a "nationalist"?Because he doesn't accept the "Kosovo independence"?

David V 09-02-2010 01:05 AM

I've heard Alexander say in interviews that he would be king for all citizens of Serbia regardless of their religious affiliation, etc.

Well considering you live in the Netherlands I don't think your opinion really matters to the Serbians or the Crown prince...

Not a bad article, but it misses some very crucial points.

We can talk about recent events in Serbia, or at least concerning Serbia, which we can't go into greater depth about here. But the point is, Serbian politics and society is in a severe crisis because a whole generation or two of Serbs have grown up in times of war, violence, hatred, and national demoralisation. It's in this that the idea of restoring the monarchy resonates among many, including the political class. The need for unity in Serbia has never been greater.

The closest parallel to this is Georgia. Again, the issues there are very similar to Serbia.

The chances of a restoration aren't too low, AFAIK. If Peter manages to master the language, then I don't see why the Serbians wouldn't want their King back. As an expatriot that's how I view it, our Pedja can do the job.

Is the religion of Serbian pretenders to the throne Orthodox?
