Milan Obrenović II (Serbian: Милан Обреновић) (21 October 1819 – 8 July 1839) in Kragujevac, Serbia. He was the ruling Prince of Serbia for just short of four weeks in 1839.[1]

Early life[edit]

Milan Obrenović was the eldest son and heir of Miloš Obrenović I, he was ill from his earliest childhood and his health was poor throughout his entire life. He was a student of the Belgrade Higher School, modern-day University of Belgrade, he had a full curriculum of study, including French and German languages. In 1830, when Serbia obtained its autonomy, Milan Obrenović became the designated heir of his father.[2]

Prince of Serbia[edit]

His father Miloš Obrenović I abdicated on 13 June 1839 in favour of Milan. Since Prince Milan "ruled" for only 26 days, no public documents were issued under his name, he died on 8 July 1839, having never regained consciousness. After his death his brother Mihailo Obrenović succeeded to the throne, as Mihailo Obrenović III. Later that year "The first regency" was formed in Serbia.

Milan Obrenović II was buried in the church of Palilula and later his grave was moved to St. Mark's Church in Belgrade.[3]
