  • Notes 
    • King of Yugoslavia l934-l945 when the Communist regime abolished the Monarchy
      In April 1941, after the Nazis attacked and occupied Yugoslavia, Petar II left in the wake of the Germany forces for Athens with the Yugoslav government. He and his countrymen were determined not to accept surrender, in the best tradition of the founder of the Dynasty, Karadjordje ("Black George") Petrovic, who led a heroic uprising of the Serbs against the Ottoman Empire in 1804. From Athens, King Peter and his government went to Palestine and Egypt. Finally, King Petar II established the government in exile in the United Kingdom. After the war King Petar II was illegally prevented from returning to his country by the communist regime which seized power in Belgrade. He and Queen Aleksandra lived in many lands in exile (USA, France, Italy and England). After a long illness, King Petar II died in 1970 in the United States.
