About this Item

Firenze, ca. 1880. Original photograph, cabinetcard, silverprint, 16,5 x 10,8 cm. Natalija Obrenovic (15 May 1859 - 8 May 1941), née Keschk, known as Natalie of Serbia, was the Princess consort of Serbia from 1875 to 1882 and then Queen consort of Serbia from 1882 to 1889, as the wife of Milan I of Serbia. Of ethnic Romanian origin, she was the daughter of Russian colonel Petre Kesco and Romanian noblewoman Pulcheria Sturdza. A celebrated beauty during her youth, she was later regarded as one of the most beautiful queens in Europe. She was born in 1859 in Florence, Grand Duchy of Tuscany (now Italy), as the first child of Russian colonel Petre Kesco (1830-1865) of Bessarabia, and Moldavian Princess Pulcheria Sturdza (1831-1874). Her father was the son of Ioan Kesco, a Marshal of Nobility of Bessarabia, and Romanian noblewoman Natalia Bal? Natalie grew up in Danuteni, Bessarabia and Iasi, United Romania. After she became orphaned by both parents, she was taken into the care by her maternal aunt, Ecaterina Moruzi. She married her second cousin, Prince Milan Obrenovic IV of Serbia on 17 October 1875. A delegation from Romania, which included members of the Romanian noble families Moruzi and Catargi (to whom Natalia was related), attended her wedding ceremony.[8] She had two sons with him, the future king Alexander, born 1876, whose godfather was Tsar Alexander II of Russia, and his younger brother Sergei (Sergej), who died just a few days after his birth in 1878. When Prince Milan proclaimed the Kingdom of Serbia in 1882 after securing international recognition, Princess Natalie assumed the title and rank of a queen. (Wikipedia). KEYWORDS:italy/photo/servia.
