About Princess Anka Obrenović

  • Princess Anka Obrenovic (later Anka Konstantinovic, Serbian Cyrillic: ???? ?????????; 1 April 1821 – 10 June 1868 [29 May o.s.]) was a member of the Serbian royal Obrenovic dynasty as the niece of the dynasty's founder Miloš Obrenovic I, Prince of Serbia.
  • She was also a society leader and writer whose translations in 1836 were the first literary works compiled by a woman to be published in Serbia.
  • She was the inspiration for a poem by renowned Croatian poet Antun Mihanovic, who had wished to marry her when she was 16 and he 41.
  • In 1860, she established one of the first Serbian salons in her home in Belgrade.
  • She was also known as "Anka pomodarka" ("Anka the fashionable"). She was assassinated alongside her first cousin Prince Michael III of Serbia, who was the ruling prince of Serbia at the time.
