Decorations of Prince Miloš Obrenović


Recommended Posts

I've made separate topics about decorations of kings Milan and Aleksandar Obrenović and now I'll continue with Miloš. In the future I plan to do the same for some other Serbian rulers, namely Mihailo Obrenović and prince Aleksandar Karađorđević, Karađorđe's son.

Portrait by Uroš Knežević from 1835. Miloš is wearing Russian Order of St. Anna with Crown 1st Class, possibly Order of St. Anna with Brilliants 2nd Class and Ottoman Nişan-ı Zişan. 
Apart from that we can see Russian Golden Saber for Bravery presented to his half-brother, vojvoda Milan Obrenović, by prince Bagration on December 21, 1809 (January 3, 1810). The saber is kept at the Belgrade Military Museum, more information about it can be found here.

Two very similar portraits, I'd say the first one is "original" with some changes done on the second one - Miloš's dress is blue and the sash is for St. Anna. I presume that's the case here because on the rest of the portraits Miloš wears the sash of St. Anna according to regulations, over the left shoulder, while the Iron Crown sash should be worn over the right shoulder...

Speaking of uniforms here's one dress (dolama) that can be seen of his portraits. I think it's kept at the Historical Museum of Serbia.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
