History of the Karadjordjevic Dynasty

 
Coat of Arms of the
Kingdom of Serbia

"The Karadjordjevic (Karageorgevitch) dynasty is over two centuries old. In 1804, a wealthy Serbian clan chief and merchant, Djordje Petrovic - known to his followers as Karadjordje (Black George, after his dark looks) - led the Serbs in an uprising against the Ottoman Empire that controlled the Balkans. 

The revolution was successful for a time. Karadjordje established a government in Belgrade and in 1811 was confirmed as lawful ruler and the right of succession was vested in the family."
