Catalogue Note

Peter Karadjordjevic (1844-1921) was the third but eldest surviving son of Alexander Karadjorjevic, Prince of Serbia. He was elected King of Serbia on 15 June 1903 and crowned in Belgrade the following year. At the end of the First World War, King Peter was proclaimed King of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, and, having also taken over Montenegro from his father-in-law, King Nicholas, reigned over the enlarged country that was to be called Yugoslavia on the accession of his son Alexander in 1921.
