Decorations of Price Mihailo Obrenović


Recommended Posts

Portrait by Jovan Popović from 1841. Young Mihailo is wearing sash of the Order of St. Anna and if I'm not mistaken Ottoman Nişan-ı İftihar (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Paul, thank you! What would be the proper English translation of Nişan-ı İftihar, Order of Glory?

Portrait by Uroš Knežević from 1854, collection of the National Museum.
This time we can see star of the Order of St. Anna.

Now with two more decorations, Russian Order of the White Eagle (sash and star) and Greek Order of the Redeemer (1st type). The third partially visible star should be St. Anna.

Lithographies from I think 1867-68 by Dr Heid and K. Subotić.
On his right side, below St. Anna, is Montenegrin Order of Danilo, while on the left is I think Order of Osmanieh with brilliants and Order of Leopold below it. I'm not sure about the rest...

Portrait by Stevan Todorović from 1868 and a photo.
Osmanieh and Leopold are visible and so is the Takovo. I can't identify the third star although some details remind me of the Russian Nevsky Order. 
How about the sash, could it be that he was decorated with the Austro-Hungarian Order of St. Stephen?
That color combination reminds me more of St. Stephen than Osmanieh... 
Is the Osmanieh with brilliants? Take a look at the ring around the central medallion, it looks like it was made out of the separate, I presume emerald, stones...

Another Anastas Jovanović's very interesting lithography with Mihailo wearing 10 decorations.
His left side:
1) Osmanieh, in my opinion with brilliansts
2) Takovo Commemorative Cross
3) ?? maybe Nevsky
4) Leopold
5) Maurice and Lazarus
6) ?? White Eagle
7) ?? 

His right side: 
8) St. Anna
9) Danilo
10) ?? Redeemer

It's hard to determine which miniatures is he wearing based on this photo, I presume Russian St. Anna & White Eagle and Greek Order of Redeemer...
He's wearing both miniatures of the stars and miniatures of the badges.

Same problem as before, based on another image I presume he's wearing the following miniatures:
1: ???
2: Order of Leopold (Austria)
3: Order of the White Eagle (Russia)
4: St. Anna (Russia) 
5: Order of Redeemer (Greece)
6: Order of Danilo (Montenegro)
7: Takovo

There's a list of Mihailo's decorations on Serbian Wiki page, I'm pretty sure it didn't exist when I started this topic...
Here's the LINK, the list is the same so I don't know how reliable it is, I think someone just used information from this topic, anyway Nevsky's on it.
I think this coat of arms is also new, I don't remember seeing it before, one can see Russian Order of St. Andrew on it?! Looks amateurish to me...

    • 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.
