Obrenović dynasty
Family that provided Serbia with five rulers between 1815 and 1903.

Its founding member, Miloš (1780–1860), was prince of Serbia (1815–39, 1858–60). His elder son, Milan III, reigned only 26 days before dying in 1839. Miloš's second son, Michael III, was prince on two occasions (1839–42, 1860–68). A cousin, Milan IV (1854–1901), became prince in 1868 and then king of Serbia (1882–89). His son Alexander (1876–1903) succeeded him as king in 1889, but he was assassinated in 1903.
