A correspondent has sent me the following note: "I got my information out of the August 1998 issue of Royalty Digest.  The article on the Obrenovics is on pg. 48 in the "Glimpses" section, and the article itself is an excerpt from a book called "A Soldier-Diplomat," by John Murray (c. 1927).  This book consists of the memoirs of Brigadier-General Sir Douglas Dawson, a British militay attache.  Dawson's visit to King Milan took place in 1886, and with him went another officer, Major Wortley.

The section of the article pertinent to the sister is as follows:

"Milan is certainly a good talker and raconteur.  At this first audience he gave us a detailed description of an attack which had been made on him and his sister when as children playing in the Topchida Park in Belgrade, instigated, he said, by supporters of the rival dynasty of Kara-Georgevitch...He enlarged on the bitter feud which for many years had existed between the Obrenovitch and the Kara-Georgevitch dynasties, and Wortley and I were initiated that day into much which was soon to make history.

"The King invited us to a State ball which was given that evening at the Palace, and to this day I have some favours which Queen Nathalie gave me in the cotillion.  Her majesty was a striking-looking lady, very much the Eastern type of beauty.  During the ball the King presented me to his sister, whom he described as "full of lead," for as a child she had been wounded in the head, body, and legs during the assault above referred to."

 

1c) MILAN, Pr of Serbia 10 Jun 1868, became King of Serbia 6 Mar 1882, abdicated 6 Mar 1889 (Marasesci, Romania 22 Aug 1854-Vienna 11 Feb 1901); m.Belgrade 17 Oct 1875 (div 1888) Natalija Kesko (Florence 14 May 1859-Paris 8 May 1941); m.2d 7 Mar 1893 his first wife

2d) Sergei (Belgrade 14 Sep 1878-Belgrade 19 Sep 1878)
